Boys dressed in historical costume cleaning the silver

Take a trip into Felbrigg’s past with an immersive day of learning outside of the classroom with role-playing, object-handling and a ‘behind the scenes’ tour of one of the National Trust’s finest country houses. With programmes suitable for History and English topics at Key Stages 1 and 2.

Bringing history to life

The Servants Hall  

What was it like to work in the big house?  Dress up and try your hand at a range of tasks to see if you would get the job!

Would a Victorian lie to you?

Take part in a ‘call my bluff’ game and handle objects from the past.  What do the things do and what can they tell us about the way people used to live?

Behind the Scenes  

Take a tour of the Hall when it is closed to the public and be wowed by the splendid Great Hall and the spooky Library!

Planning a visit

Educational sessions are available on Thursdays and Fridays during the Hall’s opening season and are suitable for groups of up to 60 students.  All sessions must be booked in advance with the Learning Team. Activities in the Hall take place in the morning.  There is accommodation for picnic lunches in the Orangery and a choice of optional outdoor activities in the afternoon.
Our guided sessions are free for Educational Group Members of the National Trust and are tailored to your year group and learning objectives.  All activities are fully risk-assessed and are delivered by experienced and well-qualified staff and volunteers with DBS clearance.

Risk Assessment and insurance

Visiting groups should have Public Liability insurance. We can provide assistance with your Risk Assessment process.
