Museums and galleries across the UK are subject to temporary closures. Those that remain open have safety measures in place, please remember to check venue guidelines before visiting.

These Easter sessions will inspire and delight children as they explore the natural world right on the Wordsworths’ doorstep.

Explore our springtime trail and see if you can spot the wildlife that’s hiding in our gardens and woodland. Have a go at decorating your own binoculars as you play, learn, and explore nature like William and Dorothy Wordsworth.

For families with children age 3+. To maintain social distancing, we will be booking up to 3 families per session with an additional date available for further sessions if there is demand.

How to book
To book please email State your name, the number and age of the children you wish to bring, details of any other adults attending and contact details for track and trace.

Please bring a suitable face mask/covering. Although these sessions take place outside, adults and children aged 11+ are requested to wear a mask if accessing indoor areas such as the Café or toilets.
