Your Visit Wordsworth Museum
Discover William Wordsworth’s remarkable life story through a unique collection of some of the greatest treasures from the Romantic age.
The Wordsworth Museum is home to original letters, journals, manuscripts and artworks, as well as some more unusual items including a pair of Wordsworth’s socks!
This year, to coincide with the centenary of the Representation of the People Act, which gave some women the chance to vote for the first time, our exhibition series Women Behind the Words is celebrating the creativity and ambition of remarkable women. Our current exhibition, ‘This Girl Did’: Dorothy Wordsworth and Women Mountaineers, explores Dorothy’s love of mountaineering and celebrates her accomplishments on the bicentenary of her ascent of Scafell Pike.
