Richard Jefferies Museum

Set in the grounds of a 17th-century thatched cottage, there is a packed programme of activities at this museum dedicated to the nature writer, Richard Jefferies.

Noted for his depiction of English rural life in essays, books of natural history, and novels, his childhood at Coate had a great influence on him and provides the background to all his major works of fiction.

Where the Museum also excels is in the varied range of activities it puts on from ‘Nature Tots’, term-time activities for toddlers 0-5 years to ‘Chip ‘n’ Chatter’, stone carving for adults of all levels, ‘Art for the Creatively Terrified’, art for adults who fancy having a go, and ‘Lazy Summer Sundays’, live music and cream teas.
