Opening Spring 2020
In 1799, William Wordsworth fell in love with Dove Cottage and Grasmere whilst on a walking tour of the
Lake District. Within a few months, he had set up home here in the hamlet of Town End with his sister Dorothy. It was whilst living here that Wordsworth produced the most famous and best-loved of his poems and Dorothy wrote her fascinating Grasmere journal.
Visit Wordsworth Grasmere and immerse yourself in the unique atmosphere of Dove Cottage, a place of ‘plain living and high thinking’. Wander through the Garden-Orchard Wordsworth called ‘the loveliest spot that man hath ever found’. Uncover Wordsworth’s radical and creative life story in the Museum and enjoy breathtaking views of Grasmere Vale from the new Viewing Station.
