We went to Avencroft with both children and grandparents for the day. It was interesting and fun for everyone. The children loved playing in a display of telephone boxes through the ages, phoning each other receiving and a phonecall from Dr Who! The old buildings are fascinating and were brought to life with people in period costumes. The highlight of... More

this is another one of those places we bring friends and family who come to visit us. The first time we visited, we were so impressed that we became members on the spot. They've dismantled old buildings and rebuilt them here. They have period costumes and the staff are in character all the time. It's a fascinating day out. Duringthe... More

Visited on a Saturday and the place appeared to be rather quiet; I was assured they do better for special events. Entry was £8 and I thought this was good value. The attraction is spread out over a large outdoor area and there is plenty to see; all were old buildings threatened with demolition which have been relocated here to... More

We had a lovely day at the museum, but at 4.15pm we decided on a drink and a cake before going home. We were told it was too late to sit inside (they close at 4.30) do we want to take it outside. It was so hot we just wanted 10 minutes out of the sun. We left the Tea... More

Lovely sunny Thursday, a day off booked, and my plans cancelled at the last minute. I really fancied a day out, and was not going to waste my day off from work. Picked up my Mum and headed off to Avoncroft. Well sign posted and we soon found ourselves in the car park. It was a hot day, so parking... More

The Avoncroft Museum is easy to get to and is well worth a visit. There is a shop and an Edwardian tea room that serves delicious cakes and savouries. It is a delight to sit in the demure surroundings of an elegant age! The museum itself is full of quirky and interesting buildings rescued mainly from the Worcestershire area. The... More

This outdoor museum is very easy to walk round with very interesting information posted about each building. You can go inside the buildings, many are working or with staff inside to answer questions. The working windmill is good fun to see both inside and out. Busy but nice tea room!
