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.




For a family day out with a difference, visit the manor lost in time - step back 500 years to the time of Henry VIII, where you will find out that history is anything but boring!

Over 200 of Kentwell's skilled living-history experts provide a fully interactive experience, with so many hands-on 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 1520.

Spend a whole day lost in the sights, sounds and smells of the sixteenth century, 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.
