Wordsworth's home - now family-friendly

Ambleside / Windermere

disabled access

If you are a local, you probably wouldn't think of this as a family attraction , but a lot has changed.

There are regular children's events during the holidays (most are free), family friendly guides to Dove Cottage and 'Explorer Bags' for kids in the museum. These are always available plus the new Family Room has lots to see and do for kids of all ages.

Details, dates etc are all to be found on our website www.wordsworth.org.uk Click on the 'Inquisitive Families' button when you open the site for the best experience.

Take a guided tour of Dove Cottage, home to William Wordsworth during his 'golden years' as a poet. Wander (lonely as a cloud) in the garden and explore the museum, family room and Foyle education centre.

It's all included in the price of a family ticket.

Times and prices are subject to change. Contact venue before setting out.
