Stepping back in time at Tyntesfield, near Bristol, this March

27 Feb 2020


Visitors to Tyntesfield, the National Trust’s Victorian High Gothic mansion and estate, will have the opportunity to learn more about Victorian costume and culture during the site’s upcoming Victorian week, from 9 – 15 March.
 
Tyntesfield’s costumiers will be in the Cow Barn atrium from 10:30am-2:30pm throughout the week, giving visitors a close up look at some of the handmade pieces from the estate’s costume collection – made mostly from repurposed fabrics which have been donated or recycled.
 
There will be free daily guided walks at 10:30am and 12pm each day, which will focus on Victorian history in the outdoors. These will include the modelling of Home Farm and day to day life on the estate.
 
Indoors, families can try their hand at Victorian household tasks, including silver polishing and napkin folding.
 
‘Tyntesfield’s Victorian week will give visitors a great opportunity to learn more about how the team research, develop and create Tyntesfield’s historically accurate costumes’, says Malcolm Thorne, Senior Visitor Experience Officer at Tyntesfield, ‘this is the first time visitors have been able to take a close look at some of the pieces in the collection’.
 
Tyntesfield’s Victorian week activities will take place every day from 10:30am-2:30pm from Monday 9 – Sunday 15 March. More information is available on www.nationaltrust.org.uk/tyntesfield
