I just had my son's 4th birthday party here and I cannot endorse it enough! The kids had great fun touring the grounds and playing games with the "Mad Hatter", they were all so engaged. The Tea Party that followed was enjoyed all the more for the fresh air and exercise all had taken part in: the quirky touches, like... More

I had a most wonderful 70th birthday party at the Avoncroft museum which was an adaptation of a children's mad hatter themed tea party into an adult version. We had the most scrumptious afternoon tea beautifully served and presented, after lots of fun and games in a team competitive way in the wonderful grounds and buildings of this gorgeous place...

We went for a family day out with an 8 year old and there were interesting things for us all. The place is spread out with lots of different buildings around the place to wonder around for a few hours. We were there when there was an American Civil War re-enactment which was also entertaining. We really enjoyed playing in... More

I have been here so many times - the special events in the holidays are great for kids- knight school, pumpkin carving, bonfire night, trick or treat...and if you have a family membership great value as no extra cost. A great place to take a picnic on a sunny day. The railway is also fun for the little ones. Lots... More

A large collection of reconstructed historic buildings, including a working windmill. Everything from late mediaeval to a post world war prefab, Avoncroft is starting to introduce people to give them life. It doesn't end there though- there are regular special events, demonstrations, historical re-enactments, children's activities. The extensive grounds are great for walking and picnicking, with loads of room for... More

We spent about 4 hours in total including a tasty cake stop. The buildings are all interesting and the telephone exchange was much more fun than I'd expected thanks to the knowledgeable guide.

I have to visit every year, ever since I was a child. It's an astonishing place where historic buildings have been taken down brick by brick and re built perfectly. For children (and adults alike) it just brings so many snapshots in history alive in a way that books and even films just can't. From the old ice house to... More

I absolutely love this place. I make an effort to take my kids at least twice a year. The grounds are beautiful especially on a sunny day! We always do something different on each visit. Can't wait for next year!
