Elizabeth Gaskell's 'bustling life' filled 55 years of hectic energy as she combined the demands of a busy domestic life with those of a writer, achieving an international reputation that continues to this day.

In this latest exhibition you'll learn more about Elizabeth as a wife, mother and author within the family home she lived in from 1850-1865.

The exhibiton is included in your admission price.

You could easily drive past Elizabeth Gaskell House without even knowing the history that surrounds this iconic building. The house, now a grade 2 listed property, was built between 1835-1841 on the outer edge of the growing city.
