Education groups


Bring your school group to Shugborough and explore the estate and all its wonderful treasures.

Self-guided visits offer the opportunity to explore the estate at your own pace and tailor your experience to the needs of your class. We welcome teachers and forest school leaders to use our outdoor spaces to help students connect with nature; and indoor spaces including the Mansion and Servants’ Quarters to learn about life in a different era.


The Mansion tells the story of Admiral George Anson’s 1740s circumnavigation and Thomas Anson’s vision for creating the estate’s and parkland.
