The Wordsworth Trust won the 2003 Cumbria Tourist Board Award for Excellence as a small tourist attraction, and the trust's website is a good demonstration of its excellence. While not large, it is worth a visit for its neat design with well-organized material to browse. The Trust operates Dove Cottage and the adjacent Wordsworth Museum near the village of Town End, Grasmere, places in the English Lake District where Wordsworth lived and wrote between 1799 and 1808. At the site, visitors will find a guided tour of Dove Cottage, a guide to the Museum's permanent collections, and exhibitions at the 3 Degrees West Gallery. The trust also runs three annual events: International Wordsworth Summer Conference, Wordsworth Winter School and the Weekend Arts and Book Festival. Information, pictures and registration forms are provided.
