Victorian servant Key Stage 2 sessions
Ever wondered what life was like for a domestic servant in Victorian times?
At what age did you start work?
How early did a kitchen maid have to get up in the morning?
Find out the answers to these questions and more whilst you try your hand at beating carpets; all under the watchful eye of resident housekeeper 'Mrs Bunce'.
Mini beasts in the park
Join us on a mini-beast hunt.
This fun-packed session involves pupils investigating the insect life in our grounds. This activity includes first-hand investigation of woodland leaf litter, species classification and recording - all set in the beautiful and well-maintained gardens.
Outdoor education area
New this year, you can book in with the education team to use our new outdoor classroom. Teach pupils about the food chain, and how plants grow and how we harvest them.
Give children first-hand experience of growing fresh produce and learning where our meals come from.
If you'd like to arrange a visit, call us on 020 8232 5050 and ask to speak to the learning and interpretation officer or email us.
