Henley-in-Arden Heritage Centre hosts guided group visits from schools, colleges and other educational establishments. These visits are of particular relevance to the National Curriculum and visits can be tailored to individual topics.
Additionally, visits can be extended to include the town's High Street, the 12th and 15th century churches, the Guildhall and the site of Beaudesert Castle. School and other young persons groups must be accompanied by an adequate level of adult supervision. We can also accommodate out-of-season school group visits.
Our team of volunteer guides including ex-teachers will provide an exciting inter-active introduction to the local history and geography of the small town of Henley in Arden. This can incorporate important elements of the National Curriculum for Key Stages 1, 2 and 3.
Groups with special needs can be accommodated but please note that because of the age of the building there is disabled access only to the ground floor.
The Medieval Room offers a variety of source material related to the early development of the town and Beaudesert castle including archaeological artefacts and documents.
The Victorian/Edwardian collection includes a schoolroom, kitchen, clothing, tools,
