Family Visits

Come and meet one of Fairfax House’s smallest but most important inhabitants … Gregory, the Townhouse Mouse.

The Townhouse Mouse, is the Fairfax House children’s ambassador. Together he and three endearing mice friends lead children through Fairfax House to discover secrets of the townhouse. Gregory is joined by Charles his country cousin from Gilling Castle who is visiting Fairfax House on an adventure, as well as Molly the Maid, and a very genteel white mouse – Anne, Gregory’s daughter.

Gregory invites his fellow mouselings to follow his tale (tail) and trail. Following mouse holes from room to room, families can search for Gregory, and complete the puzzles in the trail guide to claim their reward at the end. Why not download your Townhouse Mouse colouring-in sheets and begin your journey/trail now.
