Get Hands on with History
Escape the classroom for a day and enjoy living history through immersive and hands-on experiences. Live a history lesson through a life in the day of John Nisbet; be his eyes and ears whilst completing the Gunsgreen smuggling and rat trails and earn a smuggler’s pass to take home.
Discover the real secrets from the book ‘Secrets of the Smuggler’s House’ and complete craft activities and games to truly cement the story into young brains.
Our tours typically last 2 hours for school groups with extensions for crafts and other local visits.
