VIrtual Tours and Exhibitions

Wordsworth Trust

"As well as Dove Cottage and the other historic buildings at Wordsworth Grasmere, we look after an important collection of works by Wordsworth and the other writers and artists of the period. At the heart of this collection are the manuscripts that Wordsworth’s descendants gave to the Wordsworth Trust in 1935 so that they could remain here, where they were largely written and inspired."

William Wordsworth: From This Green Earth

"To mark the 250th anniversary of Wordsworth's birth,  the British Library hosted a small exhibition on the poet and the role that the natural landscape and concept of ‘place’ played in his poetry. On display were Wordsworth’s original manuscript drafts, books connected with the poet and related artworks of places he visited."
