Did you know that William Wordsworth was so good at ice skating that he could write his initials in the ice? He recounts his childhood adventures out on the lakes in The Prelude, and you can see his own pair of ice skates in Dove Cottage.
This February half term, come along to read some of Wordsworth’s winter poems, find out more about what winter is like in Grasmere, and take part in some exciting art and craft activities celebrating the season.
Cost: free with admission to Dove Cottage and the Wordsworth Museum
