Kids activities

School visits

Forty Hall Estate is a place for learning, engagement and inspiration. With opportunities to learn about Art, Ecology and Heritage, Forty Hall Estate is a unique learning space outside the classroom and on your doorstep.

Schools are welcome to explore the house in groups of no more than 32 pupils and we ask that once inside, classes are divided into smaller groups of approximately 10 children.

We have a range of self-guided school resources for primary aged pupils to support their learning as they walk around the house. Please get in touch if you would like to book a visit.
