On this special tour designed for families with young children, our Learning team will take you and your little ones on a fun and interactive tour of the oldest working kitchen in the country, which has remained in use for 750 years.

Built in the reign of Edward III, the Great Kitchen has been used ever since. 

See original fireplaces and hear about the elaborate dinners prepared for kings and queens, including the 30 course sumptuous banquets in the time of George IV and Queen Victoria's unique dining rules.
