Hawkshead Grammar School, Hawkshead

4.9
#3 of 6 in Museums in Ambleside
The museum operates in the old Hawkshead Grammar School building from April through to October. It gives a guided tour of the school room which brings the school to life. Visitors may feel the atmosphere and almost believe you are in a working English schoolroom of 200 years ago where the languages used were Latin and Greek. Visitors may see the Elizabethan charter and silver seal and the desk on which William Wordsworth carved his initials.
