Gilbert White’s House and The Oates Collection is a fantastic place for families to visit whatever the season. From the strange collection of Georgian cooking utensils in the kitchen and the penguins of the Oates Galleries to the sunflowers and pumpkins in the gardens, there is always plenty to explore and we have an exciting programme of family activities and events running throughout the year.
If you would like to join our email mailing list to be kept up to date with our family programme, please email our Education team.
