Bring your group to Wordsworth House and Garden
Groups are always welcome at William’s childhood home, and 2020, the 250th anniversary of his birth, is the perfect time to visit.
If you book in advance, you can have a free five-minute introduction by a duty manager and choose from our programme of exclusive talks and tours.
Explore our anniversary exhibition, ‘The Child is Father of the Man', and the rest of the house at your leisure. Relax in the garden, then browse in the gift shop for Wordsworth souvenirs and local treats.
If there are 15 or more of you, those who aren’t members of the National Trust will pay just £8.20 to enter. (Normal price: Gift Aid £9.70, standard £8.80.)
Book a 10-minute costumed servant talk for an extra insight into Georgian life. Talks can accommodate up to 20 people, with 12 standing and eight seated, and cost £2 per person.
