Wordsworth House, Cockermouth

Wordsworth House is the birthplace and childhood home of William Wordsworth – a ‘living’ 1770’s townhouse and an insight into the Wordsworths’ family life. Costumed interpreters reveal the reality of life in 1770s Cockermouth with interactive demonstrations and tastings in the working kitchen. There’s lots of items to touch and use including the children’s toys and an attractive walled garden growing fruit, herbs and vegetables of the Wordsworths’ time.
