Dumfries House

One of Britain’s most beautiful country estates, Dumfries House, provides innovative programmes for primary-age pupils to post-graduate students. Farm-to-fork experiences, exciting workshops in STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering, maths) and the opportunity to take part in craft initiatives, are all part of the dynamic education offering.

The Estate also proves a space for many craftspeople to demonstrate and learn hands-on skills of building restoration and heritage crafts, including stonemasonry, joinery and timber framing, thatching, lime plastering and pargeting. The ongoing restoration project, begun in 2007 by HRH The Prince Charles, can be seen by visitors to the estate all year round.
