Wordsworth Grasmere

Wordsworth’s poetry is synonymous with the unique landscape of the English Lake District. He celebrated our relationship with nature and the importance of taking time to appreciate the wonder and beauty of the natural world. Wordsworth Grasmere has a dedicated and award-winning education team with expertise in working with young people. Students will discover what life was like for the Wordsworth family over 200 years ago and the sensory and interactive tour offers the opportunity to learn about life in the past and relate this to their own experiences. There is a raft of different workshops to choose from including guided walks, creative writing, narrative poetry and woodland workshops.
