Sussex Day

The Weald & Dowland Museum is a regional Museum, and includes buildings from Sussex which will be a particular focus on this special day.

Join us on Sussex Day 2022 to find out more about every day life, food and crafts.

There will be demonstrations relating to the more recent past of Sussex in the early 20th century. Also listen to music and dance, a traditional part of many celebrations!

We are proud to be celebrating #SussexDay and playing our part in conserving the historical architecture and social history of our ancestors within the county of Sussex.

Information for Visitors

The Museum’s 40 acres site, historic gardens and buildings are fascinating places to learn about rural history. Visitors can purchase grain from the Shepherds Hut (coffee cart) and feed the hungry ducks on the mill pond. Whilst enjoying the great outdoors and fresh air, look out for the heavy horses and other traditional breed farm animals including pigs, chickens and geese. There are a number of lovely woodland trails, including a woodland play area for children to explore.

Our waterside café will be open for eat-in and takeaway meals and snacks. Visitors can bring a picnic as there are plenty of picnic areas available on site. Takeaway refreshments will be available from our Shepherd’s Hut (coffee cart) located near the Stables. 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.

All activities are subject to change.
