Come and enjoy our Victorian workshops at St John’s House. Experience a Victorian Schoolroom, work in our Victorian laundry, play with Victorian toys, try on Victorian costume or explore how rich and poor people lived in Victorian times. Workshops cost £3.50 per child per workshop and you can enjoy three workshops during your visit. Visit our Victorians at St John's page to find out more information.

Or why not bring your pupils to experience our new Great Fire of Warwick workshop and re-imagined Anglo Saxons and Ancient Romans workshops, using immersive techniques to encourage creativity and enquiry led learning? Workshops cost £7 per child. Visit our Key Stage 2 page to find out more information.

We are running all workshops at St John’s with new covid safety procedures, including making sure only one school is on site at a time and an increased cleaning schedule. Any workshops that used to be delivered at Priory House are now delivered at St John’s, taking advantage of the increased space and facilities available for extra safety.

We are also able to visit schools again to deliver our popular Stone Age to Iron Age, Ancient Egyptians and Toy and Games workshops. Workshops range from £6 per child (Toys and Games) to £8 per child (Stone Age to Iron Age; Ancient Egyptians).

Remember you can also visit Cross Hands Quarry with us and spend the day in the open air at our Rocks and Fossils workshop (£6 per child).

To find out more about any of these workshops or to make a booking please call 01926 412069 or email heritageeducation@warwickshire.gov.uk.
