In 1950, a women’s teacher training PE college was established at Wentworth Woodhouse. Join one of our ex-Lady Mabel students for a guided tour to see some of the rooms used by staff and students in their day-to-day life. Learn from your guide what student life was like in the magnificent ‘Big House’ and hear the tales about living here and the impact it had.
“I have just been on the amazing Lady Mabel Tour led by Sue and Cheryl. They were lovely and very informative guides and I felt I’d really entered into the life, history and values of the College. We went into lots of rooms not normally open on other tours and saw lots of memorabilia collected from previous students. I would recommend this tour to anyone who has an interest in social history and the lives of people from the 1950s to late 1970s.” | Sally, Lady Mabel Tour Attendee 2022
