Learning Programme at the 1620s House & Garden

Workshop

Activity Description

This rare and beautiful house is a surviving example of a family home built in the 13th century and then modernised in 1618. The house has been home to many families over its 700 year history, but the Digby family, which included the Gunpowder Plotter Sir Everard Digby, lived in the house for over two hundred years. Come face to face with some stunning objects, living history interpreters in costume and our inspirational workshop spaces. Our sessions are for all ages and have strong curriculum links. Book on to either our teacher-led or museum educator led sessions from only £2.50 per pupil. Teachers can pre-book a site visit for free.
