My wife and I visit on a dreary afternoon, and were amazed at the size of this place, and the fact that we had never heard of this before. The exhibits are well laid out, in a semi woodland setting, and you are free to enter the buildings, get a real hands on experience with a lot of items. We... More

A very pleasurable day... We got there around 11am, reasonable price of £9.00 each. Staff were very friendly, got chatting to one of them, she had a lot of enthusiasm for the place, and was very informative of upcoming events. Loved the different lay outs, the displays had a great feel to them. There was a 1940's profab, which was... More

You can actually get really hands on, its not all roped off so there are lots of chances to touch and play with everything. We all sat in... More

Went during Drive IT day joining other like minded TR enthusiasts. We had to be on site before 10am and were asked to remain till after 4pm - this was due to the cars forming part of the attractions for that day. Fairly extensive displays from years gone by relating to past rural life but no way did it occupy... More

Nice day out over Easter with the family, the eldest child did get bored after an hour or so but youngest had a good time. Will be going back when train is working on a Sunday. Nice to be outdoors in good weather.

I visited with a friend. We went during the week so it wasn't busy at all. There were recreated houses and buildings in different time periods which were nice to look around. Other buildings included an old chapel, school room and lots of different trades i.e blacksmith, carpenter. There is a childrens play area, but basic. There are areas for... More

Jess (My Bulldog) my wife and I thought we'd actually have a look at the Rural Life Centre as well as enjoy a lunch in the on site cafe. It was a overcast and chilly day so it was good to be able to go into some of the buildings to briefly warm up. We were there for two hours... More

We visited today as part of a Home Education Group trip and took part in 2 workshops. The centre was amazing, the workshops were fun as well as informative and the volunteers were amazingly helpful and friendly. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the day and we really want to go back again. If you go and visit, you will not be disappointed!

Visited several times in 2014 for the special weekend events and recently for the Santa special. Atmosphere is relaxed and friendly, it is staffed by volunteers. Agricultural based exhibits from 18th century up to mid 20th century. Many old buildings recovered from villages around Surrey.
