“Worth every penny”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

You just can't go to Hawkshead without visiting the Grammar school. It's a credit to all involved that the refurbishment and continued maintenance of the school allows the general public to have a glimpse of schools centuries ago and it is an absolutely fantastic place to see. I defy anyone to visit this place and not be impressed and interested in it's contents.

“History Comes Alive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2013

What a great experience to "dive" into the past with a great guide who "revives" this building and the old school furniture! Listening to the guide helps you to imagine what it was like to go to school 500 years ago.

“Incredible History”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

Seeing where William Wordsworth went to school was amazing. Seeing the overall history of the area,especially when you come from a young country like Australia is awe inspiring.

Especially loved the wood carvings and the guy who was manning the school was very helpful and informative and seemed to genuinely enjoy answering all our questions.
