Explore the warren of rooms below stairs as you discover the responsibilities of the service staff of the 19th century. Count out wages in the Housekeeper’s Room, grind the spices in the Great Kitchen and pack up Lord and Lady Tredegar’s picnic in the Still Room.

Can you survive 24 hours in the life of a Tredegar House servant?

Before you head out, pop into the Servants’ Hall and get stuck into some arts and crafts. The team will be on hand to help you make different types of birds.

After you’ve explored everything there is to see inside the mansion house, head to the home farm where the Tredegar House team will be on hand to help you tick off No.36 of the 50 things to do before you’re 11¾.

Build your own bird box and take it home to welcome some feathered friends into your own garden.
