The Gilbert White Field Studies Centre is the Education Department of Gilbert White’s House and The Oates Collection. Gilbert White, Frank Oates and Lawrence Oates were all explorers of the natural world, from Selborne to Central America, Africa to Antarctica. We aim to inspire the next generation to develop their own curiosity about the natural world; to explore it, understand it, enjoy it and look after it.
Our workshops include both local natural history, making full use of our beautiful grounds and surrounding countryside, and world exploration using the fascinating historic collections of our museum with galleries on Antarctica, Africa and Central America. Please see our website for a full list of workshops available.
