The Great Kitchens

Pies, puddings, venison, salmon, prime beef – only the very best was good enough for royalty.

See what life was like for the men, women and children who prepared the feasts for kings and queens, and baked the daily bread for servants.

It’s a bustling scene filled, not just with people, but the dogs, cats and rats which also tried to survive by scavenging for scraps on the straw-covered stone floors.
