You are guaranteed a warm welcome, whether you meet the maid, manservant or one of our knowledgable 21st-century guides. They will give you a taste of history in the Georgian kitchen and you can marvel at stories brought to you by a ghostly hologram figure from the past. Outside, explore William's beloved garden. This inspired many of his poems and is full of 18th-century flowers, fruit and vegetables - all used in the house. Relax in the summerhouse and try the homemade cakes and scones in our cafe. Take in a talk, tasting or children's holiday activity. As featured on ITV. Children can dress up in replica clothes available in the children's bedroom, there are trails to follow round the house and garden, and skittles in the courtyard.

This event took place in September 2014 and the entry is now archived.
