The Old Servants’ Hall
New for 2019, Holkham Hall will be opening up The Old Servants’ Hall for visitors to see; whilst used for many recreational gatherings, this room holds its own place in history for its exotic collections.
The Old Servants’ Hall is home to an extensive and well-mounted natural history collection of over 120 examples of mostly local species, including birds, fish and mammals.
Visitors can also expect to see a Billiard Table, George II library armchairs, George III tub chair and Georgian tables.
The Servants’ Hall was last used by the lowers servants as their dining room in 1942, soon after Kitchen Wing and Chapel Wing (excluding the Chapel) had been requisitioned by the army, from then on all the servants ate together in the Steward’s Room.
