I am a medieval re-enactor. We get to go to Avoncroft and have a great time. Toilets are always clean,the tea shop is a delight, Boards around the site are very informative and the buildings are restored to a good standard. not over done but 'lived in'

Visited with the wife and granddaughter. Plenty of interesting historic buildings also a playground for the little ones. Lovely quaint tearoom at decent prices. Well worth a visit. Annual membership is well worth purchasing.

Although visiting as a couple the museum is great for families. You can spend hours on end looking around the large site where you can imagine the life of people who used these buildings. The centre has done a great job in restoring the natural beauty of these buildings.

An eclectic mix of interesting buildings that includes a working windmill, a post war prefab, various farm buildings and, of course, the national telephone kiosk collection. If you have an interest in old buildings, enjoy outdoor museums or have children who enjoy exploring this place is worth a visit. The telephone kiosk collection is fairly unique. Many contain working phones... More

We're just about to renew our family membership as we really have enjoyed it this last year. We always go during the school hols as they always have something on plus a different themed trail for the kids. Also, if you want somewhere to go for a picnic it's perfect. Plenty of space to kick a ball around and always... More

A very well set out site. I loved the prefab as remember them from my childhood. The tea room is worth a visit. Scrumptious cakes!

Thank you for your review. I am sorry that you were disappointed that the train wasn't running, but train times are on our website in the What's On section (unfortunately the rules of TripAdvisor don't allow me to include the link for you). Avoncroft is a small independent charity and we rely a great deal on volunteers to help run... More

A nice place to wander - space for kids to run round and interesting info boards for adults. The tearoom is excellent too. Lots of different styles of historic buildings. I particularly liked the collection of phone boxes!

I would recommend Avoncroft Museum to everyone. A drop in for a coffee/ tea and a bite to eat, a day of sightseeing, a day of fun and interesting activities and of course a wonderful wedding venue for my wedding. I have done all of the above at Avoncroft Museum and will be doing all again several times, except the... More

It was a really interesting visit with different buildings such as the windmill, the tin church and the showmans caravan. I particularly liked the medieval house where outside there were a group of young people dressed in medieval clothes. Inside there was a fire with a kettling boiling and food laid out on the table. The young girl was very... More
