This is your opportunity to see behind the scenes at our collections stores and to discover the range of objects we hold there. From toilets to teapots, fireplaces to floral carvings, and Tudor plates to tiles, you’ll be taken on a journey from Hampton Court’s Stone Age origins to the Victorian and modern Grace and Favour residents.
