Meadow Brook YOUTH TOUR “JOURNEY”
Your child will grow with The Hall, as they follow this special journey:
- Teddy Bear Tea: This is an introduction to The Hall, with a child-friendly tour of the main floor. We then go to Frances’ playroom for dress-up and tea.
- Making Games: This is the next step of the journey, offering more information about the family and growing up in the 20s and 30s. We cover the whole house with a scavenger hunt and finish upstairs with the type of games both Frances and Danny would have loved.
- Puppets & Plays on the Farm: Take a break from The Hall and learn about Meadow Brook Farm while you make an animal puppet.
- Playing the Past: The kids are older so it’s time to learn more about The Hall, including the architecture and interior decorations that make it unique.
- Secret Spaces: This is a special behind-the-scenes tour intended for the older child who has been to Meadow Brook.
- Estate Walking Tour: An exciting tour for older children! This tour involves a lot of walking on tough terrain with steep inclines. Tours continue rain or shine, so dress appropriately for the weather.
Meadow Brook Youth Tour: OPTIONAL ADD-ONS
- Manners: Your child will learn to properly set a table, introduce themselves, handle meals at a friend’s house and more!
- Knole Cottage: “Simon Says” to skip along the path to Knole Cottage. Join your friends on a trip to the 6-room miniature playhouse that was Frances Dodge’s 12th birthday present. We will have a lot of fun with vintage games and a picnic along the way.
