Wordsworth House and Garden (National Trust)

Description

William and Dorothy's award-winning birthplace is a home from home. This lovely Georgian town house offers an unforgettable chance to learn the horrible truth about 18th-century life, meet ghostly family members and share their stories. The servants and our 21st-century guides offer a taste of history in the working kitchen. The garden is packed with vegetables, fruit, herbs and flowers, just as it would have been in William's day. His early life here inspired some of his most moving poems. Whatever the weather, you're guaranteed a warm welcome - and great baking in our cafe! Featured on ITV.
