A Visit to Tudor England


Today we welcomed the first of over 8,500 school children to travel through the Time Tunnel and explore life in the Sixteenth Century. Visiting a Kentwell Re-Creation is a memorable experience. Almost all the Kentwell staff, and many of the brides and grooms who choose a wedding at Kentwell Hall, are among the more than half a million who have visited our Tudor Schools Event since the late 1970s.

This year's Great Annual Re-creation, 'Kentwell 1578', started this weekend and we were delighted to receive the following feedback from a Kentwell returnee:

Dear Kentwell,

I first visited Kentwell as part of a School trip in about 1982/3. I loved it
then and today, just over 30 years later, I took my 4 year old daughter and
sceptical husband to see your Tudor recreation. We had a wonderful time - it
was everything I remembered and better - although I do wonder how you can
feel nostalgic about Tudor times! Thank you so much for providing us with a
wonderful family day out and an antidote to all the 'recreations' at other
properties which never, in my view, live up to the Kentwell experience. It
was worth the trip form Norwich and I hope it won't be another 39 years
before we come back.

Fare thee well!
With thanks and best wishes,

Kentwell 1578 is open for the next two weekends with Midsummer Celebrations this coming Saturday & Sunday (14th & 15th) and a grand finale complete with Pageant and Fayre on 28th & 29th June. Don't miss out!
