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!

See the Sixteenth Century brought to life by 200 of Kentwell's skilled living-history experts in a fully interactive event, 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 to the year 1549.  Spend a whole day lost in the sights, sounds and smells of the Sixteenth Century, at Kentwell.  

This fully-immersive, interactive, hands-on event captivates enquiring minds and fuels imagination, creating memories and experiences

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

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!


Its a lovely time to visit Kentwell's Gardens - especially when the fruit trees in the Walled Garden are in blossom
