History Boxes


Unless otherwise stated, all History Boxes contain a pack of suggested activities to do with the objects included. Two of the History Boxes (Brookwood Hospital: A Victorian Community and Oral History) have been specially designed to introduce visitors to Woking's Story.

Brookwood Hospital: A Victorian Community
This box explores how the hospital worked and how patients were treated in Victorian Woking. Due to its sensitive subject matter, this box is suitable for pupils aged 11 and up.

Reminiscence 1930s, 1950s and 1960s
Three different boxes with an eclectic mix of original objects from the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s. Please note: these boxes don’t contain suggested activity packs. Suitable for all ages.

Tudor Tableware
Reproduction objects from the Tudor age inspired by Woking Palace. Suitable for all ages.

Victorian Wash Day
Victorian clothes, underwear and large laundry items such as tin baths and washing boards bring the hard work of wash day alive. Suitable for all ages, but particularly appropriate for Key Stage 2.

World War II
A fascinating selection of original WWII objects and audio resources with sounds from the era. Suitable for all ages, but particularly appropriate for Key Stage 2 and above.

1950s Childhood
Original toys, games and books evoking a child's life in the 1950s. Suitable for all ages, but particularly appropriate for Key Stages 1 and 2.
