Our award winning programmes are designed to educate, inspire and entertain. The unique historic setting, exciting learning activities and stimulating outdoor spaces will provide a day out that your pupils simply won’t forget!

A visit to Knebworth is a fabulous opportunity for pupils to experience learning outside the classroom in a magical setting; whether they are finding out about the past, exploring nature outdoors or using the landscape to create amazing stories.
If you are visiting from June onwards, you may choose to visit the Adventure Playground where children will have endless fun on the swings, slides, play equipment and explore Fort Knebworth.
We have something for all key stages across the curriculum, including History, Science and Literacy days.

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
