Your school’s visit to the 18th century
Our curriculum-linked guided and teacher-led sessions will give your pupils a real sense of what it would have been like to grow up almost 250 years ago, in William and Dorothy Wordsworth's childhood home. Sessions are available Monday to Thursday, from 9.30-11am, between 9 March and 22 October. Below, you'll find all the information you need to plan and book your visit.
Step back in time to dress up and explore
Your group is welcome to stay on after its guided sessions to spend more time playing with our reproduction toys and games, dressing up in replica costume, and exploring the house and garden. Pupils can write poems in the Wordsworth Room, play skittles in the courtyard, sketch on William and Dorothy's terrace, and meet the heritage chickens in the small walled garden.
