Take a step back in time as you enter Sir Peter Scott’s home where he championed the cause of worldwide wildlife conservation through growing the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust (WWT) and set up the World Wildlife Fund (WWF).
Little has changed in his home since the 1950s and you will be surprised to find out about his amazing life not just as the son of the famous Antarctic explorer Robert Falcon Scott but as a pioneering wildlife conservationist, an artist, inventor, Olympic sportsman and Naval war hero.
Find out about his friendship with Sir David Attenborough and which members of the royal family visited his home, marvel at his original illustrations of Bewick’s swans and reminisce about his days as a wildlife presenter on the BBC ‘Look’ TV programme.
