Kentwell Hall, Long Melford

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 20th Century, 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!

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

We recommend you dress for the weather - our pathways can become a little muddy after prolonged rainy periods.  However, this is great news for our younger visitors, as it means there are puddles galore!

Please pre-book your visit (any time up to 10.30am on the day of your visit) and 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.  We will close at 5pm.

Please note that advance booking is essential as we will be strictly limiting numbers on site.  We regret we will not be able to offer tickets to buy at the gate, as we cannot go above our maximum safe numbers.  We ask that you pre-book so we have your full contact details.
