Six Centuries of Food and Dining at Eton College

About

Food has been sourced, prepared, cooked and served to the boys and staff of Eton College from its foundation in 1440 until the present day.

Eton has the second-oldest working kitchen in England, and College Kitchen and College Hall have been operating for the purpose of placing meals on the tables in the same spaces for over 500 years. This exhibition examines and illustrates the serving of food at Eton through the centuries using objects and records from the College Collections.

Access to the Verey Gallery is via the Museum of Eton Life.  The Museum of Eton Life is in Brewhouse Yard, accessed from Eton High Street via Baldwin’s Shore.

The exhibition is open on Sundays 2:30-5pm.  If you would like to make an appointment to book a visit outside of the Sunday opening times, please contact collections@etoncollege.org.uk
