Experience what servants’ lives once were ‘below stairs’ and discover the mansion’s basement floor with themed and interactive activities for all the family to enjoy.
The new immersive and playful exhibition brings the past to life and explores what it’s like to live, and work in the ‘Palace of Palaces’. Moving through the rooms, visitors will discover the upper and lower servants from 1787, not just their roles and status, but their names, clothes, and something of their day-to-day life.
‘At Your Service’ is an installation for those looking to dive deeper into the history of the Georgian estate and a reminder of the unforgotten people who made Osterley the impressive place it was.
27 December 2023 – 31 march 2024, 11am-3.30pm. Open Wednesday – Sunday.
Free, normal admission applies.
