Noticing Nature at Wordsworth, Grasmere.

No visit to Grasmere is complete without a visit to Wordsworth’s former home, Dove Cottage – the place where many of his greatest poems were written. Once you’ve paid your admission (pay once and you can use your ticket for a year) you’ll have access to a range of free events in the house, museum and garden, including Noticing Nature, which takes place every Monday at 2pm.

Using William and Dorothy Wordsworth’s own words read aloud to help you connect with nature in the restored fell-side garden they lovingly created together behind Dove Cottage, you’ll explore and discover those little details you might otherwise miss.

As well as Noticing Nature on Monday, you can also enjoy live poetry on Tuesdays, a daily gallery tour at 3pm, sketching on Wednesdays during opening hours, and a look behind the scenes on Thursdays at 11am, so it’s worth visiting more than once during your stay in Grasmere or nearby.

Please note, this event is free with an admission ticket.
