Award-Winning Education

The Knebworth House Education and Preservation Trust is now in its fourth decade of offering a high quality programme to educational visitors. We are delighted to have continuously held the Sandford Award for excellence in heritage education since 2001.

Knebworth House is an exciting and interesting place for school groups to visit. The Education team take care to offer visits that are tailored to the particular interests and needs of a group, and which make the most of the House and the collection. Often it is possible for school groups to be the only visitors in the House which gives a group the chance to take time in each room and really engage with the topic in hand. This makes for memorable visits! “ Sandford Award Judge 2016
