Visited today with my husband and were pleasantly surprised to find there was an event on. A lovely outdoor museum with plenty of interesting exhibitions and lots of fun photo opportunities! We had a great time. Would recommend to all for a fun and informative afternoon out. Plenty of vintage ploughs to fawn over too, my husband couldn't believe his... More

Visited today with the grandchildren. Lots to see and lots of space to run around. Some of the attractions only run on Sundays so weren't operating today - but that didn't matter, and was probably a bonus! No queueing or problems with the exhibits - we could look and talk about everything without interruption. The few other visitor we saw... More

My parents and children had a wonderful day here today. All were entranced - children loved all the hands on activities and crafts, grandparents the reminiscing. Nice cafe and shelter if rains.

This is a lovely centre with so many volunteers who are willing to stop and talk to you, particularly on Wednesdays when most of them are in. It is set in beautiful surroundings, which also offer a woodland walk. We particularly liked the schoolroom, the chapel, a 1950s prefab, which was so authentic inside and one of the larger buildings... More

Fascinating museum, with lots to keep the interest. The open air exhibits were great, very "hands on" the whole family enjoyed walking around the various relocated old buildings. Especially interesting are the unexpected relics dotted about. Some a bit out of place, but all the more interesting for that. definitely worth a visit.

Changes are continually made at the Rural Life Centre and every year there is something new to see as well as revisiting old favourites. A calm and tranquil place that comes to life with numerous events that will provide something for everyone fromDonkey Days Out to Classic Car shows.
