This tour gives an extraordinary insight into the behind-the-scenes life of the Castle. The Great Kitchen is the oldest, substantially unchanged and still working kitchen in the country and has remained in constant use for nearly 750 years.
Your special guided tour begins in the Castle's Winchester Tower with refreshments and an introduction to royal dining. You hear about the elaborate dinners prepared for Elizabeth I, George IV and Queen Victoria and about the preparations for State occasions today. The special visit then continues with a tour of the Great Kitchen itself. It concludes in the magnificent State Apartments, which your group may explore at leisure with an audio tour.
The tour is available on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, January to March and from October to December 2014.
£35.00 per person. Minimum 15 / booking value £525. Maximum number 54.
