FAMILY FUN – COME RAIN OR SHINE


WORDSWORTH HOUSE AND GARDEN


Helping with the cooking in the kitchen


Keeping the whole family happy for a full six weeks of summer holidays can be a challenge, especially if the weather takes a turn for the worse.


Whether it’s wet or dry, there’s plenty for everyone to do at Wordsworth House and Garden. We’re open from Saturday to Thursday every week and there’s something going on each day, from art and craft activities to fun family garden tours.


Kids can borrow an explorer bag and go wild like William and his sister Dorothy every Saturday and Sunday, searching for creepy crawlies in the garden and getting tips on how to create their own backyard nature haven.


Monday is the day to head to the cellar to craft a fabric poppy, while on Tuesday they can drop into the kitchen, roll up their sleeves and have a go at making traditional Cumbrian Clapbread.


On Tuesday 24th July, there’s an opportunity to handle original objects from the First World War at a special hands-on history event from 1.00pm-3.00pm, courtesy of Carlisle Military Museum.


The theme every Wednesday is wild art: we supply the materials – all kids need to bring is their imagination.


On Thursday, the entire family can go on a fun garden tour at 11.30am or 2.30pm to taste flowers, touch bugs and discover how to attract beneficial insects and wildlife to any outside space.


Whatever day you visit, youngsters can hunt for amazing animals from the First World War with our new trail.

There are reproduction toys and dressing up clothes in the children’s bedroom, quills and ink to write with in the clerk’s office, a giant magnetic storytelling game and drawing materials in the Discovery Room and


colouring in activities in the café.


What’s more, if the rain stays off, there are poetry stones and skittles to play with in the back courtyard and giant jenga and mammoth dominoes waiting in the small walled garden.


There’s more than enough to keep grown-ups entertained too, with the moving Where Poppies Blow exhibition, costumed servants to chat to and the award-winning heritage garden to explore.
