Guided Tour, from 22 Jan 2019


National Trust Nostell

National Trust Nostell


Ever wondered what happens when the house doors close for winter? See what the conservation team get up to, to look after this special place and have a go at some conservation techniques yourself. Have a behind-the-scenes look into our collection stores and get a glimpse of some of the objects not currently on display.
During the winter, the conservation team are even busier than when the house is open to visitors! The brass needs polishing, scaffolding needs building to clean the top of each gilt picture frame, not to mention brush vacuuming of all the Chippendale furniture. Take a sneak peek at the essential tasks the team do each year to protect and preserve the collection for future generations. After the special tour of the house, try your hand at some techniques yourself and enjoy a warming drink and slice of homemade cake.
