New for 2019: 'Difficult Women' of Burton Constable
Burton Constable has had its share of what would have probably have been called 'difficult' women over the centuries and this new exhibition shines a spotlight on these generations of women who have shaped and contributed to the development of the Constable family and the Hall itself. This exclusive tour of the 'Difficult Women' of Burton Constable exhibition with the Curator will give you a deeper and more detailed insight into these extraordinary and sometimes colourful women through their fascinating and somewhat surprising, stories. The price is £20.00 per person for groups of 15+, maximum 32 people. This 1 hour tour starts at 11am and includes a self-guided tour of the Hall and entry to the Grounds & Stables.
Cobwebs and Cream Teas 'Behind the Scenes' Tours
The chance to peek behind the scenes and explore hidden nooks and crannies, is irresistible, and Burton Constable’s ‘Cobwebs and Cream Teas’ special guided tours offer just that chance … with knobs on!
On a ‘Cobwebs and Cream Teas’ tour, guests explore this wonderful Elizabethan house literally from top to toe, seeing the rooftops and garrets, as well as delving into the depths of the cellars: en route taking in servants’ quarters, grand state rooms, archives and stores.
