Education and learningPrimary & Secondary School Visits
Broaden your exploration of Sir Walter Scott’s world with a visit to Sir Walter Scott’s Courtroom. A member of our staff will help your pupils discover for themselves what life was like in an 1800's courtroom, by making them feel like they have stepped back in time. Focusing on crime, punishment, law and order. This is ideal for school parties as there are plenty of hands on activities designed to stimulate and educate keen young minds. This is available to pre-booked school groups from April – October only. For more details or to book a visit please contact the Assistant Curator on 01750 726456.
