IN PICTURES: Travelling back in time with North Bute at Mount Stuart

Featured here is a selection of photos from North Bute Primary School’s recent Victorian day at Mount Stuart, courtesy of Ricky Harrison.

Ricky, the Mount Stuart Trust’s event co-ordinator, spent the day following groups of pupils as they learned all about daily life in a Victorian-era stately home, including cooking, cleaning, gardening and butlering (is that a word?) before enjoying a guided tour of the house which included several areas most visitors never get to see.

North Bute Primary School's pupils learn how to be a Victorian butler during their trip back in time at Mount Stuart.
