Learning the secrets of the Victorian kitchen at Valentines Mansion
Children learned the secrets of the Victorian kitchen when they visited Valentines Mansion in Emerson Road, Ilford, on Sunday.
Youngsters aged three and upwards put on 19th century style outfits and played house in the suitable surroundings of a building which is more than 300 years old.
They learned the differences between a modern-day kitchen and the Victorian equivalent at the free drop-in event for families.
Rebecca Bianco, four, wore a Victorian dress and played with traditional wooden cake toys.
And visitors took part in the “mixed-up kitchen challenge”.
