For a family day out with a difference, visit the manor lost in time - step back nearly 500 years to meet the Tudors, and find out that history is anything but boring!

Over 100 of Kentwell's skilled living-history experts provide a fully interactive experience, spread throughout the buildings, gardens, farm and woodlands.  See crafts and cooking, music and dancing and a whole community going about everyday life, as if you had travelled back in time.  Spend a whole day lost in the sights, sounds and smells of the sixteenth century, at Kentwell.  

Entry to the event also includes entry to the House, and to over 30 acres of beautiful family-friendly country house gardens and parkland.  

An active day out for explorers of all ages!


Please pre-book your visit (any time up to 10.30am on the day of your visit), so we can monitor numbers expected on site.  Also, if you pre-book, you get a discount of £2 per ticket!  Please arrive in good time to get the most out of your visit.  You are welcome to arrive at any time from opening time until our last entry at 2.00pm.  The gardens will close at 4pm.  If you are Season Ticket holders, or Historic Houses members, please also book your tickets on-line.


Refreshments: we are pleased to offer light lunches and refreshments as a take-out service, for our visitors to enjoy outdoors.


Facilities: the loos near the Tea Garden area will be available for use.


The Weather: we will open whatever the weather and your visit can certainly fill a rewarding few hours.  Please dress appropriately for the weather!  Kentwell has its own Met Office weather report - please click here to view it.


Accessibility: the majority of the gardens are accessible by wheelchair in good weather, via good pathways and firm, lawned or mown grass tracks.


Disabled Visitor Discount:  for registered disabled visitors and their carers: please purchase tickets at the next rate down.  If you are adults, please purchase a senior ticket; if you are seniors, please purchase a child ticket, and so on.
