This summer Arlington Court is celebrating the incredible journey of Rosalie Chichester and her companion Chrissie Peters during their 1920-21 world tour.

Running from the 17 July to the 1 September this exhibition invites visitors to explore the fascinating stories and artifacts collected by these pioneering women.

• Follow the story of Rosalie and Chrissie’s world tour on display in the house. Learn about their remarkable journey and locations visited.

• Try your hand at arranging a Victorian-style shell display and see the displays of the shells collected during Rosalie’s travels.

• Learn how to make an origami paper boat, share your own travel story and add it to the growing display hanging in the Staircase Hall. These paper boats will later be repurposed as Christmas decorations.

‘Our tour proves that it is quite possible for two women alone to travel in comfort and safety around the world.’ - Rosalie Chichester
