Hidden Histories

Job Title: Hidden Histories |Client: National Trust

What was involved?...

Hidden Histories is a new strand of the visitor experience at the National Trust’s Tatton House near Knutsford. Tours of the grand rooms and estate have always been popular, and now visitors taking the tours of the kitchens and servants quarters can explore the lives and working conditions of named servants in the 1900s, and a fascinating insight into the technology of the time.

A number of iPads, some mounted on stands and some held by the guides, bring to life interactive stories from the housekeeper, cook, maids and sculleryman, through their diaries, daily schedules and ledgers. We created the project as a number of modules which will be extended when further parts of ‘downstairs’ in the mansion are revealed.
