As the nights draw in and the days grow colder, it is the time of year to use the winter as the Romantics did – to read, to learn, and to share stories in good company. Pull up a chair in our new café and enjoy a short informal talk on a topic connected to the Wordsworths – all with a hot drink and a seasonal bake close to hand, and led by our knowledgeable staff and trainees!

This week, discover more about the Wordsworths and food. What does our manuscript collection, and the work of food historian Peter Brears, tell us about the recipes that the Wordsworths used and the food that they bought?
