Visit over 10 eras of history in one day!

We are closed.

We will re-open as soon as it is indicated that it is safe to do so.  We have had no choice but to close indefinitely until the Government permit us to re-open.

We regret to announce that, due to government restrictions in connection with coronavirus that this event is cancelled for 2020

We wish all those who know and love Kentwell that you and yours keep well in these difficult times and avoid severe infection of this virus.

If you have booked tickets for any of our events or opening, any and all such tickets will be available to be used for any remaining opening days this year or, if there are none, for days of the same event in the following year.  No refunds will be available.




The ultimate day of History Time Travel.


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


For nearly 40 years, Kentwell concentrated on presenting one period at a time, so it was not a huge leap to have a whole range of historic eras here at once.  Travel from the stone age to the 1980s, with each time period in its own individual setting, all properly equipped and costumed, and doing activities appropriate to each individual period.


An excellent and stimulating combination of history and nostalgia, over 2000 years of history in one place, on one day - only at Kentwell!

The facilities

A perfect family day out

House, gardens & farm

On the day, the house opening info will be as shown in the event details, above. You can also enjoy your time in the colourful gardens and meet the animals on the farm.

Food & drink

The Stableyard tearoom will be serving our seasonal homemade menu sourced mainly from the gardens with meat from the farm. We also have a tasty range of cakes and biscuits to tempt you!

If you fancy your own food, there is a picnic site by the main gates with a marvellous view of the house; however, we do not allow picnics inside the gardens.
