There are family activities free with admission to poet William’s childhood home until Sunday 3rd November. At the weekend, try pastimes from the past, including a noisy card game called Snip snap snorum that William and his sister Dorothy would have loved.
Monday is the day to become a rock artist, following in the footsteps of the land’s
inhabitants by decorating a pebble to tell a personal story. On Tuesday, join the costumed servants in the kitchen and have a go at making traditional Cumbrian clapbread.
Wednesday is natural art day. We provide the materials, while nature offers all the inspiration needed to make a piece of wild art from found objects. On Thursday, take a seat by the fire at 11.30am or 2.30pm to hear some of the ghostly tales William and Dorothy might have enjoyed.
For grown-ups, there is a last chance to see the powerful ‘Under Northern Skies’ exhibition before it closes on 3rd November.
Taking their cue from William’s role in motivating the founders of the National Trust and the global conservation movement, a group of teenage curators have created a display highlighting the ways in which we humans are damaging the world around us.
It includes original illustrations by artist Gustave Doré for ‘The Rime of the Ancient Mariner’, written by William’s fellow Romantic poet Samuel Taylor
Drop in on Thursday 21st November between 5.00pm and 8.00pm, or on Saturday 30th November, between 11.00am and 2.00pm to kickstart an artistic project.
The house and garden won’t be open but Jenny will be on hand in the discovery room with ideas and practical guidance as you make a Christmas star, paint a Georgian-inspired greetings card, or get to work on a project of your own devising.
When it comes to Christmas presents, our shop is full of lovely things. You can even give the people who matter most to you a whole year of special experiences with a National Trust gift membership. It costs just £72.00 for a single adult and £126.00 for a family.
From mountain-top views and sea-swept beaches, to historic houses, gorgeous gardens and country walks, there are so many incredible places to enjoy, why not let our team wrap up the unwrappable gift?
