Ever wondered what a weekend spent in Victorian high society would be like? At the Royal Weekend Party, catch a glimpse of the secrets and scandals that were a common occurrence throughout the Castle.
In 1898, Frances Countess of Warwick, more affectionately known as Daisy, hosted a weekend party at which the principal guest was the Prince of Wales, later Edward VII.
Throughout 12 exquisitely designed rooms that were in fact former private apartments, wax figures of the principal attendees stand alongside authentic furniture and furnishings to help bring to life the excitement and scandal that swept through this weekend party. From seeing Daisy trying on her newly commissioned gown to a young Winston Churchill reading a book in the library, Victorian Britain is accurately recreated here.
Did you know: Daisy was a very interesting character. She became a vegetarian, championed women’s education and stood as a Labour candidate.
