Plan your school visit

The east side of the house early in the morning

Come to Ightham Mote for a day of exciting discoveries and stimulating learning experiences. From Literacy and Numeracy to History, Art, Science and DT, the incredible house, garden and estate will bring your teaching to life.

Discovery sessions run from March to October, Kent term time only. Depending on the workshop required, we can cater for up to 60 pupils. Please see individual workshop pages for details.

You can also get in touch prior to your visit to arrange a free familiarisation and planning visit.

Admission to the site is free with Education Group Membership. Non-membership group admission prices can vary by season. All Discovery Sessions are then priced at £6 per pupil, and House Tours at £3 per pupil - and must be booked in advance.

You will need to provide a date for your visit as part of the booking process. All prices are based on a minimum of 15. You can arrange to visit with a smaller group and we can help tailor your visit for this, although the price for any sessions will still be based on 15 to ensure we cover our costs.

Bookings must be made at least 7 days in advance. Once you've booked your visit, we can provide you with a hazard identification document to help you write your risk assessment.

To book your visit and any Discovery Sessions, please contact our learning team on 01732 810378 ext.103, or email ighthammoteeducation@nationaltrust.org.uk to discuss your requirements.
