Wordsworth House and Garden

CA13 9RX 01900 824805

A visit to Wordsworth House and Garden is a unique opportunity to experience late 18th-century life at first hand.

Presented as the Wordsworth’s bustling family home and peopled by costumed servants, it offers an unforgettable chance for all ages to see, smell, hear, touch and even taste what it was like to live in the 1770s.

There are daily ten-minute talks, poetry readings, children’s trails and tastings of recipes the family’s servants might have prepared. During school holidays, there is also a full programme of family activities.

Make yourself at home in the hands-on rooms – including an amazing working Georgian kitchen – help the servants with their chores, listen to their tales of life with the family, and learn the fascinating story of the house and garden.

Grown-ups and children can write with a quill pen and ink, dress up in replica 18th-century clothes, play with replica toys, listen to the harpsichord, browse the books or just relax and soak up the atmosphere.
