We have a small place that we call The Tornos Studio. Here we have stocked the finest collection of books, journals and literature based on Lucknow. We have an array of books, specially connected to The events of 1857. Guests are welcome to drop in and read these or watch a documentary/film based on Lucknow on a 55 inch TV along with their afternoon tea.

We book the The Tornos Studio for private reading and documentary shows for visiting tourists. Our current titles include : Costumes of Awadh, Lucknow Cuisine, British Raj, Sepoy Rebellion, Courtesans of Awadh and a few film titles (Umrao Jaan, Chess Players, Gandhi, Gadar, Lagaan, Mangal Pandey etc).

An exclusive tea at The Tornos Studio can add a wow factor along with making the visit so very meaningful and intellectually enriching.

How about making it a part of the itinerary and treating guests to an intelectual dose. This sure can enhance the visit feedback. – (by appointment, subject to availability)

We can organise a Trunk Show of some exclusive chikan and zardozi embroidery by acclaimed designers over a drink along with a documentary on Avadh Costumes. (we will though take a 5% from the designers on the stuff sold, to cover our basic cost)
