WELCOME TO HAWKSHEAD GRAMMAR SCHOOL MUSEUM!

Situated in the quaint Lake District village of Hawkshead, the Hawkshead Grammar School Museum gives insight into school life from 1585 to 1909.

The classroom houses a collection of historic classroom furniture and artefacts used in the School, some of which date back to the Seventeenth Century.

All visitors are given a warm welcome and a short introductory talk about the school. We offer a range of family activites including dressing up, scavenger hunts, quill writing and a 'fact-finder' quiz which encourages visitors to find out facts from different displays in the museum.

The museum has two floors, the Ground Floor and the First Floor. The First Floor is only accessible by stairs.
