How We Are Keeping You Safe

We have been working hard to put extra safety measures in place to ensure we are COVID-19 secure and have implemented several new precautions, following government advice, so that we can provide a safe and enjoyable visit for everyone. Please see our full FAQs and guidelines.

Information for Visitors

The Museum’s historic buildings are fascinating places to explore, plus you can learn how food was prepared in the Tudor kitchen and how flour is milled in the watermill – where you can buy grain and feed the hungry ducks on the mill pond. Also enjoy the fresh air and see the heavy horses and the other traditional breed farm animals including chickens and geese. There are lovely woodland walks and children can explore our woodland play area and family activity barn.

Our waterside café will be open (serving 10.30am-4pm), plus there are indoor and outdoor picnic areas. Dogs on leads are welcome and there is ample free parking. Please note that the Museum is a no-smoking site. Visitors with access needs are advised to read our accessibility page in advance of their visit.

Please wear clothes and shoes that are suitable for playing outdoors.
