Have you ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes at a stately home? All will be revealed as one of our knowledgeable guides gives you a glimpse of the working life of the 17th century stately home in the 21st century.

The tour will take visitors through hidden corridors and up staircases not usually seen by the public and into fascinating and busy parts of the House. Areas include the Victorian Orangery, Servants Hall, Stewards Room, Middle Drawing Room, Boudoir, Family Staircase and the Music Room.

This is also a wonderful opportunity to see some of the 28 bedrooms as well as learn more about the work of the Weston Park Foundation, the charitable trust that owns and maintains Weston.

This year marks the centenary of the start of World War One and your guide will talk about the impact of the conflict on the country house, the Bradford family and the tragic tale of R.O.B Bridgeman who died in the conflict.
