February half term trail at Bateman's
The well-trodden path to Bateman's front door has seen some famous visitors over the years. Join us this February half term to discover just whose names are in the Bateman's Guest Book.
Who's knocking at the door?
Whilst we don't ask our visitors to sign in today when they visit, except in exceptional circumstances, when Bateman's was the Kiplings' family home it was common practice to keep a guest book to record who had visited.
A warm welcome
Although Kipling moved to Bateman's to be away from the prying eyes of the general public, there were frequent visitors to the family home. Not necessarily the rich but certainly the famous of their day graced with their presence including writers and adventurers.
This February half term our trail will get you searching for clues as to some of Bateman's famous visitors and encourage you to find out more about them and how their work brought them here to visit Rudyard Kipling.
