Your guide will greet you in the museum courtyard and take you around the museum to tell the stories of prolific writers William Cowper and John Newton.
As we celebrate 250 years since Amazing Grace was written, your guide will explore how John Newton came to write this epic hymn.
Your guide will point out the highlights in the collection, including some of the original manuscripts produced by Cowper and Newton, along with other gems, including a miniature by William Blake.
You will then have the opportunity to explore the gardens and museum at your leisure and learn about the other characters in our story.
