From Victorian characters dipicting life as it once was at Palace House, to rides through time on 'Wheels'.
Visit Palace House at the The National Motor Museum, Beaulieu in Hampshire. Home of the Montagu family since 1538, this charming house gives a fascinating insight into life in a Victorian household. Watch history come alive with real Victorian characters; tales from the Butler, Cook and Housemaids give a fascinating insight into the workings of a Victorian household, showing their life ‘Upstairs and Downstairs’.
