School Visits

Hall Place is a fantastic location to visit with students of any age and ability, we have award winning gardens, historic house and a wide range of teaching resources.  We ask that all schools contact our Education Team in advance to notify them of your visit. We can have up to 60 children onsite for taught sessions with our Education Team, so knowing when self-led schools are visiting site is essential in managing the facilities and a quick email to us can make all the difference.

It’s not just the gardens that are award winning, so is our Education Service! At Hall Place and Gardens we strongly believe in a hands-on and active approach to learning, covering a wide range of curriculum subjects: Tudors, Victorians, WWII, Literacy and Science.

Depending on the sessions chosen this could include Tudor dancing, handling objects, wearing costume, making bees wax candles, planting and gardening. Our education officers specialise in bringing the history of the house and the wider curriculum to life, making every child’s visit to Hall Place not only memorable and fun but also meeting the required learning objectives.
