Things to see and do at Quebec House

Spring tulips at the front of the house at Quebec House

From 9 May - 2 Aug, Quebec House will be open on the weekends only whilst we carry out vital conservation work. Weekend visitors can uncover the reality of the Battle of Quebec as well as explore life in the 1730's when General James Wolfe was a child here.

House

This intimate 18th-century family home, with its pretty garden, was the boyhood home of General James Wolfe. Visitors can uncover the reality of the Battle of Quebec in 1759 and reflect on his legacy for both his contemporaries and for us today.

Visitors can also explore how Jame's family lived in the 1730's; including the food they would have eaten and the toys which would have kept them entertained. 

Tours

Join one of our tours at 12noon and 12:30pm for a detailed discovery of the history of the house. Spaces for the tour are given out on a first come first served basis.

Garden

Enjoy our 18th-century garden, hidden away in the heart of Westerham. The garden is stocked with flowers and plants from the time and we've used Mrs Wolfe’s recipe book to fill our kitchen garden and herb border with the ingredients that Mrs Wolfe would have used to keep her family well-fed and healthy.
 

Coach House

Please note that from 9 May - 2 August the Coach House will be closed whilst essential conservation work is carried out.

Enjoy homemade cakes along with a selection of hot and cold drinks in our tea-room. Afterwards find an interesting read in our new second-hand bookshop. With books donated by our volunteers and visitors, all the money raised from the bookshop goes back into maintaining Quebec House.
 

Paths of glory exhibition

Please note that the exhibition is closed from 9 May - 2 August whilst essential conservation work is carried out on the Coach House.

Learn about the battle which made General James Wolfe a household name, in our exhibition room. The exhibition brings alive the story of the Quebec campaign and is an unmissable part of your visit to Quebec House.
