I hope you’re not afraid of needles! Visit Dr Jenner's House, where the vaccination was invented, and learn about a doctor that has saved millions of lives.

Enjoy a day out that your mini-historians and curious little scientists will find fascinating. At the manor there are interactive videos, exhibitions, and plenty of imaginative activities to keep everyone occupied. Make sure to take your family on a walk through the spacious grounds surrounding the house, where you’ll find the creepy-crawly insect hotel, and the beautiful wildflower meadow.

During Dr Jenner's lifetime, smallpox was accountable for a third of all child deaths, and without this invention so many more lives would have been lost. On this day out your family can visit the historic manor where thousands of lives were saved. You never know, maybe this trip will inspire your child to design the next great invention.
