Let’s Be Victorian Servants

60 mins, onsite, KS1

Find out all about homes in the past in Brighton’s most famous Victorian manor house.

You are invited to come dressed as Victorian servants to find out more about the jobs a servant would do and what life was like for them.

The servants at the Manor need your help with their daily duties. The house needs dusting, the floors need sweeping, the bed needs making and the fireplace needs polishing.
