Hidden Passages and Servants’ Stairs: A Behind the Scenes Tour of Holkham Hall
Date(s) - 05/08/2020
1:30 pm - 3:00 pm
Accompanied by an expert guide, explore the hidden passages and the servants’ stairs of Holkham Hall. You will see what lies behind the beautiful ceiling of the Marble Hall and hear how it was made, and be taken right up to the highest tower rooms and attic space.
Find out how the servants managed to flit between the grand State Rooms without being seen and how they serviced the State Bedchambers, where royalty once slept. Learn where Princess Victoria’s Ladies in Waiting were accommodated. See where the fantastic collection of manuscripts were once found, when Coke of Norfolk inherited the Hall. This is a rare opportunity to see parts of the Hall not normally on public display. Oh, and the views over the park from the Tower rooms are delightful.
But, be aware! These tours are not for everybody. You will need to climb seventy stairs to the top of the house (and seventy stairs down again!) So, do wear sensible shoes.
Tickets: £25 adult, £12.50 child (recommended age 10+). Book online.
