The Poetry Bus

To hail the reopening of Dove Cottage, William Wordsworth’s home during his ‘golden decade’ (1799–1808), and as part of a yearlong celebration of the poet’s 250th birthday Wordsworth Grasmere and Stagecoach bring poetry to the people via the 555 and 599.

Bus travellers between Windermere and Keswick may be a little surprised when poets Kim Moore and Clare Shaw, climb aboard the 555 and 599 buses on Thursday 19 March.

Kim and Clare will perform their own work as well as sharing some of Wordsworth’s words with passengers as they journey through the landscape that inspired some of Wordsworth’s greatest poetry – and continues to inspire poets today!

Dove Cottage, the world-famous home of William and Dorothy Wordsworth will reopen on 7 April 2020, the official anniversary of his birth after an authentic restoration and the visitor experience will be transformed with newly animated spaces around the poet’s much-loved Lake District home.
