ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages)

For adults studying English as a Second Language at intermediate level or above, or those improving their English skills, we can combine the content of our schools' English workshops with a general tour of the House. Workshops can be tailored to suit the needs of your group and can include a focus on the importance of dictionary-writing or the evolution of language.

The group rate is £5.00 per person with a free tour, although some organisations may be eligible for free entry. Please contact us for further information.
