Take a behind the scenes tour of Cherryburn, close to the river Tyne cared for by the National Trust

  • Description

    Join us on a behind-the-scenes tour of Cherryburn cottage and farmhouse in Northumberland, the birthplace of famous 18th-century artist and naturalist Thomas Bewick. Bewick is renowned in art history for revolutionising print art in Georgian England, and Cherryburn is fortunate to be in the care of an unrivalled collection of his work. In this tour, explore the historic building and surrounding natural area that heavily inspired his work. You’ll discover stories of Bewick’s life, hear about the garden renovations that’ve been designed to attract wildlife and see how his woodblock prints were created. You’ll also get to go behind the closed doors of the back rooms where Bewick’s books and other treasures are stored to see objects that aren’t normally on display at Cherryburn.
