Jazz up your background

Tired of looking at the same four walls? Use our downloadable backgrounds to rejuvenate your video calls.

Our Rooms Through Time show some of the ways in which homes and home life have evolved in the past 400 years.

For our reopening we've added two new rooms and given the others a refresh. We're bringing them to life with the stories of people who would have lived in similar homes.

All the images are mirrored and ready for use in your Zooms Through Time.
