Description
Set in the midst of a delightful cottage garden is the house in which Sir Edward Elgar was born, come in and see the birthing room alongside the incredible Elgar’s Study. This striking exhibit is designed to immerse the visitors in Eglar’s creative inner sanctum. Housing some very precious original manuscripts, including ‘Salut d’Amore’ and ‘Land of Hope and Glory’, we see the humble pre-requisites Elgar required to create his music. The sources of this genius may surprise you.

We have converted a room in the visitor centre, previously used as office space, into a new exhibition space. Central to the exhibition is Elgar’s desk and chair which were previously in Craeg Lea in Malvern together with all the tools he would require to compose and publish a symphony.Also exhibited will be examples of Elgar’s manuscripts and his writing implements.
