Using a voucher from Groupon, we got entry into Avoncroft for much less than the on-the-door family price of £25. The ladies on the gift shop/entrance are lovely and knowledgable, gave us a map of the site and pointed out some of the main features before we set off. First place to visit is the collection of phone boxes, which... More

Bought a voucher on Groupon to visit this place on a whim and enjoyed the morning. Loved the telephone box collection from early days to modern plastic and metal contraptions. There is a working windmill with fascinating stories told by the volunteers. Lovely proper cup of tea served in the on site tea rooms and enjoyed some retail therapy in... More

I would recommend if you want a peaceful day out, as I was surprised how few visitors were at Avoncroft when we visited on Friday. Our first port of call was the tearoom which is in what had been the 'String of Horses' pub, and later became the Co-op Frankwell, Shrewsbury. This was the reason for our visit because I... More

A nice stroll around the grounds on a sunny day, a mixture of social history and nostalgia. the phone box collection is a mixture of memories for the older visitor and amazement and dis-belief for the young, a good insight of older farm buildings and industry through the ages. We had a good deal for entry as we booked through... More

Thank you for the positive feedback and we are glad you enjoyed your visit. Thank you also for the comment about the Tea Room prices, we do keep these in line with other local attractions and rely on the proceeds from the sales there to support our work in rescuing and restoring our buildings.

Great value for money. Lots to see and great for a trip down memory lane seeing the old phone boxes and the pre fab house that was at the end of my road when I was a kid! Can easily spend a few hours there but preferably on a dry day.

Visited on a reduced price ticket from Groupon, probably 10 years since our last visit. The car park seemed very busy but there were few visitors inside. The staff & volunteers are all very enthusiastic & are determined to enlighten you about things you may not want enlightenment on. The biggest detracting thing for me personally were all the posters... More

Thank you for posting, glad you enjoyed your day, but I am sorry if you found some of our volunteers a little too enthusiastic! Just a quick note on the telephone kiosks, for most of them you do not actually need coins, you can simply make and answer calls between the boxes. More

We visited the centre whilst visiting friends in Bromsgrove. I am not sure of the costs of entry but the place is well worth a visit. The historic buildings are great, including some building styles I had not seen before, and we were lucky to see the windmill in action! The array of telephone boxes and equipment was very entertaining... More
