In years past, the Parham household would have been self-sufficient from produce grown, reared and preserved on the estate. The Big Kitchen café will feature Parham-grown fruit, vegetables and venison on the menu.
Learn about estate life and view traditional woodland crafts or sign up for a guided deer spotting walk in Parham Park, where deer were first recorded in 1628.
