Youth and Children's Groups

We offer a wealth of stimulating talks and events for children looking to get to know more about the town, its history and heritage. 

These cover both the history of East Grinstead, and the story of ‘Rebuilding Bodies and Souls’ which tells the story of Sir Archibald McIndoe and the Guinea Pig Club.

We welcome self guided group visits during our opening hours, but if you want to make your day extra special, we have a number of activities you might be interested in.

Below you will find options for existing activities, or we can create bespoke options for your group and their needs.
