Celebrate reading with us

We love books and reading at Lanhydrock so we're celebrating World Book Weekend here with storytelling in the music room.

A family reading a book together

Our storytellers will be dressed as their favourite characters. Why don't you dress up too and join us in the music room?

You can use your World Book Day tokens in the gift shop to claim a free book or get £1 off any of the many book titles we stock.

More books in the house

The Agar-Robartes family loved books too. The magnificent gallery in the house is home to one of the most important book collections looked after by the National Trust and you'll find a display in here of the books the family's women used for self-improvement as part of our commemoration of the centenary of the Representation of the People Act, which first gave the vote to women.
