Playing servants

“I took this shot because of the starchy look of the front entrance and the horse’s steps. I went back there with my school and I played the servants. I was a kitchen-maid, and we made lemonade, and helped make marmalade, and rolled out the pastry. From the front entrance, it looks very neat and – everything would be in the right place – but when you go in there, it’s sort of…well, a bit all over the place!”

  • We love the front view of the house and it looks so posh and neat. We wished we could play servants as well.

  • I went on the same sort of trip to Preston Manor with my school many years ago. I remember my mum working till the early hours to get my chambermaid outfit ready! Great tour Jessica.

  • It was a great place especially for children. And I would recommend it to other people.

  • My daughter went on a school trip where they dressed up and acted out the servant roles. Because she had a great time I took my other children and it was lovely. I grew up round the corner and spent a lot of time in the grounds and surrounding parks. It is a lovely day out, and don’t miss a walk in the gardens and church yard.
