For a family day out with a difference, visit the manor lost in time - step back to the year 1599, where you will find out that history is anything but boring!
Kentwell's skilled living-history experts provide a fully interactive experience, with so many activities, spread throughout the house, gardens, farm and woodlands.
See crafts and cooking, music and dancing and a whole community going about everyday life, as if you had travelled in time back to the year 1599.
Spend a whole day lost in the sights, sounds and smells of the sixteenth century, at Kentwell.
The House itself will not be open - the history will be spread out among our 30 acres of gardens and grounds. Kentwell's Gardens are extensive and provide quiet space for comfortable relaxation in beautiful surroundings. Visitors should have little problem in keeping socially distant from others!
The event this year will be different in format from our previous living history events, due to current restrictions and regulations. However, it will still be an amazingly interesting and informative day out for the whole family!
