Time Travellers: Bristol in the 1700s

Step back in time to Bristol in the 1700s. Discover family life in a wealthy Georgian house, the famous people who visited, and amazing events which shaped the city we know today.

Children will:

  • Dress in replica costume as worn by people in 1700s Bristol
  • Role-play life below stairs with a costumed interpreter, trying their hand at simple household tasks
  • Compare and contrast the lives of people in the 1700s and people alive today
  • Explore the house using themed activity boxes to learn about the significant people who visited, such as poet William Wordsworth and campaigner Hannah More, and important local events

Suitable for: Year 1–4
Duration: 75 minutes
Group size: Up to 35 pupils – you can book more than one session
