Dillington House has been championing adult learning and running adult education courses in Somerset since 1950. With all that experience behind us, we know what interests people. We also know how to deliver knowledge in a way that is engaging, fun and accessible.  Our ever-changing adult education programme includes a vast array of practical and academic subjects. For most courses, there is no minimum entry requirement - all that's needed is an enthusiasm for the subject.

Some of our adult education courses take the form of weekend study breaks, others are held as intensive day courses, and some as more leisurely summer schools. You can participate in any of our courses on a residential or non-residential basis, with our fees being adjusted accordingly.

Fees include tuition, refreshments, all meals and - where applicable - entrances, transport and en-suite accommodation.
