A school visit to Barley Hall allows pupils to become immersed in life in a wealthy merchant’s townhouse in the Middle Ages. Accompanied by our costumed characters, your class will learn about the Snawsell family who lived here towards the end of the medieval period and how the remains of their home was uncovered and restored. Take a tour of the rooms in the house and make yourself at home.
