Tudor Buildings


Local history study

Understand the architecture and construction of Wollaton Hall’s exterior and explore the Prospect Room. Discover the symmetry of Tudor builder, Robert Smythson, and marvel at the building’s unique features including carvings, the ‘date stone’ inscription and each elevation in turn. Children draw as they navigate the hall.

Be aware that the tour includes some stair climbing and if the weather is very wet the tour remains inside.
