The Earl and Countess of Carnarvon Read more
Highclere Castle is the home of the 8th Earl and Countess of Carnarvon.
In 1922 the 5th Earl of Carnarvon and Howard Carter discovered the tomb of Tutankhamun. Over 5,000 objects, works of art and everyday items were found in the tomb, providing an extraordinary insight into the Ancient Egyptian civilisation.
Educational visits may be arranged outside of normal public opening, subject to availability.
The present Earl and Countess offer the opportunity for Primary Schools to visit the Exhibition as part of their study of Ancient Egypt under the National curriculum.
The Exhibition is available to schools groups; Monday to Friday in term time subject to availability.
On arrival the children are divided into 2, or 3 smaller groups depending upon the numbers. It is in the interest of the children that we keep these smaller groups to around 15 as neither the Exhibition nor the “hands on room” room can accommodate large numbers. Each group, accompanied by an experienced guide, visits in turn (for approximately 35 minutes at each venue) the following:
The charge is £5.00 + VAT per child with 1 adult to 10 children free.
In addition to the schedule of Option A, the children continue from the Antiquities Room on the path to discovery which culminates in a recreation of the treasures found by Lord Carnarvon and Howard Carter.
The charge is £8.00 + VAT per child with 1 adult to 10 children free
For schools wishing to eat a packed lunch during their visit we are usually able to provide a room. During the summer months there is a picnic area.
Small souvenirs can be bought at the end of the tour if requested when booking
Option One: £5.00 + VAT p.p (Minimum charge £75.00 + VAT).
Option Two: £8.00 + VAT p.p (Minimum charge £120.00 + VAT).
We welcome, free of charge, accompanying adults to fulfil the statutory ratio;
Normally: 1 adult – 10 children .
We also welcome, free of charge, additional adults to accompany children requiring 1-2-1 support; these adults should be listed on the booking form.
**Any additional adults above this number must be by prior agreement and will be charged at the same rate as the children.
