From ice skating ‘in the frosty season’ to keeping cosy by the firesides and listening ‘to the flapping of the flame’ in Dove Cottage, winter presented the Wordsworth family with great opportunities for fun and creativity. However, the harsh, cold conditions of the season also caused hardships and struggles for many. Come and learn what winter was like in Wordsworth’s time and explore the poetry he wrote inspired by it before having a go at some fire- and ice-themed crafts, including making icicles, weaving and creating winter collages. Activities for children aged 3+.

Cost: free with admission
