The ultimate day of History Time Travel, reserved especially for those families who educate their children from home.  

(This event continues for the public on Thu 2, Fri 3, Sat 4 and Sun 5 June.)

The ultimate day of History Time Travel!

Encounter pockets of history from a range of different eras brought to life by 150 of Kentwell’s skilled living historians, spread throughout the buildings, gardens, farm and woodlands.  Spend a whole day immersed in history at Kentwell and travel through time.


An excellent and stimulating combination of history and nostalgia, over 2000 years of history in one place, on one day - only at Kentwell!  Travel from the stone age to the 1970s, with each time period in its own individual setting, all properly equipped and costumed, and with activities appropriate to each individual period.


This year, we have the following time-periods represented:


Neolithic Hunter • Bronze Age Crafts • Medieval Cottage • Tudor Domestic Life • 17th Century Music and Dance • Regency Emporium and Military Recruiting Party • Edwardian Adventurers • WWI Services • 1920s Croquet Party • 1930s 'Constable Films' casting • WWII Home Front and Suffolk Regiment • 1960s Peace Camp • 1970s Happy Campers • 1980s Punks


Entry to the House and Gardens is included as part of the event - explore acres of gardens, woodland and farm - rich in spring flowers and blossom everywhere.  On the farm, you can also see this year's lambs in the paddocks. There is so much to see and do.  All activities will continue whatever the weather.


An active, outdoor day out for explorers of all ages - a breath of fresh air for everyone!


We prefer you to pre-book your visit , so we can monitor numbers expected on site.  You can buy tickets at the Gate but if you pre-book, you will save £2 per ticket!    Pre-booking is possible up to 9.30am on the day of your visit.  The Event will close at 5pm.
