Below stairs tours at Belton House

Take a basement tour to delve into the hidden life of those below stairs who kept the mansion running.

Life Below Stairs

Hidden from view but very much a hive of activity, the servants working below stairs kept the mansion running, no matter what time of year.

Today, you can get a glimpse into the past life of Belton on a basement tour. You'll see where the servants worked and lived; hear about the jobs they would have to do, and perhaps even a bit of gossip.

Take the tour

Over the winter, basement tours run each day between 11am - 2pm. Tickets can be collected from the west entrance of the house from 10.30am. The tour is free of charge to National Trust members. For non-members there's an upgrade fee on top of grounds admission, if a whole property ticket was not obtained on entrance.
