Reviews

    Details

    Grasmere History Group is a group of local people who meet monthly to discuss matters of local history. It is a very friendly, informal gathering at which we share our interests and ask questions of others who might know the answers we seek. We have a wide range of interests and in recent years we have produced exhibitions about Grasmere in the First World War and the early years of tourism in the Lake District.

    New members from near or far are very welcome and we are always looking to meet more people with fascinating stories to tell about Grasmere and the Lake District. We meet on the first Tuesday of each month in the Jerwood Centre at 7.30pm. A speaker or discussion topic is usually arranged in advance; for more information about a specific date please get in touch with us.

    Full disabled access is available to the Wordsworth Museum. As Dove Cottage is an historic building, we have been unable to make provision for disabled access. However most wheelchairs will find the ground floor accessible and there is a virtual tour of the cottage available at the information point in the Wordsworth Museum.

    By bike: There are cycle parking stands near the attraction's restaurant.

    On Foot: There is an easy and safe two-minute walking route from Grasmere to Dove Cottage along Stock Lane. There is also a lakeside path or the Coffin Trail Bridleway which links Grasmere to Rydal near Ambleside. Both are fairly easy-going routes with great views.
