This weekend: Rydal Mount Dawn Chorus experience

Filed under Uncategorized

A brand new and idyllic tourism experience is on offer this coming weekend at Rydal Mount in Cumbria – the most beloved home of the Romantic poet William Wordsworth and his home for 37 years, from 1813.

On Sunday 2nd May 2010, visitors pre-booked with the poet’s family home, based at Rydal near Ambleside, will be able to enjoy the tweets and twitters of the dawn chorus, just as William and family did back in the nineteenth Century, as daylight emerges over tranquil Rydal.

The event will start at 05.30am in the stunning gardens, where the sounds of a woodpecker, robins, chaffinch, thrush, blackbirds, nuthatches and many other birds can often be heard.  The group will listen to the tweet and rustle of nature and appreciate the poetry that Wordsworth would often recite to himself in his summerhouse and on the terraces that he designed.

The Rydal Mount Dawn Chorus experience costs £6.00 per person, with an option of adding a tour of the Rydal Mount house to this nature-focused experience for an additional £1.50. Booking is essential.
