“Downton Days”: A Servant’s Life at The Great Estate

Step back into history and gain insight into the life of the Servants at The Great Estate.

A Servant’s Life Living History Tour

A Servant’s Life is a unique tour where visitors will have a chance to see life as it was lived in the “downstairs” of Meadow Brook Hall when the head housekeeper invites them to be part of the staff. Guests will learn how the servants lived and worked at The Hall in this behind-the-scenes immersion tour. Complete your afternoon with tea and scones in the Servants’ Dining Room.
