If you want your wedding reception to be organised by no better than a inept local parish council then Avoncroft is for you. They ruined my friends wedding . The main problem was a lack of leadership and management. Everything was done "on the cheap".I dont know for certain but the staff ,who to be fair did their best, seem... More

We loved this place. The buildings are spread around the site so there were no queues or crowding when you were trying to see them. The buildings themselves were really interesting. We particularly liked the windmill, the church and the phone boxes. There were even instructions in the phone boxes on how to make a call for those not old... More

Wow! Where to begin? Something for everyone! Lovely Edwardian tea rooms as you first go in and right next to those the telephone box collection! I could have spent all day there! You can ring the other phone boxes! And who remembers Mercury? Then there was a counting house. A miniature railway (50p extra). A corrugated iron church. A three... More

Lots of buildings to look around and a lot you are able to go inside. Plenty of information boards with all the details of where the buildings were originally and how they were moved. The grounds are level and easily accessible and well kept. Particularly loved the pre-fab, complete with 1950s memorabilia and the lady doing her knitting! There were... More

A good variety of historic buildings to look around. Our kids especially enjoyed the old telephone boxes which you can ring from one phone to another. We were also shown around the telephone exchange that they have there, which was quite interesting. They also had a go at making their own brick (which they got to keep) & as it... More

Fantastic day out with 4 boys and our pup. So nice to go somewhere where the children can see history brought to life whilst having a good run around. Staff really friendly and helpful. We will definitely go back!

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'
