First built in 1643 and much altered by subsequent owners, Wimpole has developed into the largest country house in Cambridgeshire. Wimpole provides almost a case-book history of English Gardening from 1690 to 1830.
Wimpole Home Farm was built over 200 years ago and first opened to the public in 1983. This is a working farm set amidst both thatched farm buildings and modern farmyards.
Why are Wimpole Hall great for School Trips and Educational Visits?
A visit to the Wimpole Estate provides an enjoyable and memorable way of bringing many areas of the curriculum to life.
Visits can be either self-directed or can include sessions of directed activities led by Learning staff.
Is there first aid on site?
Teachers should bring a school first aid kit and are advised to bring a mobile phone in case of emergencies.
Do you offer access for visitors with disabilities?
Please be aware that all access to the Hall is via steps. There are also flights of stairs to the basement and first floor. Access to the Farm is by a level firm path. By prior arrangement it is possible to bring a coach or minibus to the Farm to unload if any of your group has mobility problems. A wheelchair may be borrowed from the Stable Block, please book this in advance.
