Elizabeth Gaskell’s House is throwing open its doors this summer to the world of the Victorian children at play. Every Wednesday in the summer holidays, a range of activities will take visitors back in time to when the Gaskell’s daughters would have played in the House.

Meet Mrs Gaskell and her housekeeper for an interactive visit to Elizabeth Gaskell’s House on Wednesday 16 August.
