Weald & Downland Living Museum, Singleton

4.6
Weald & Downland Living Museum recreates over 500 years of rural English life by providing real examples of buildings, tools, food, and crafts from the homesteads of the countryside. You’ll find a farmhouse, cattle sheds, a granary, a windmill, several types of barns, and 50 other buildings, all carefully dismantled and rebuilt on the site. Look at traditional tools and watch demonstrations about life in a by-gone era. Try the cooking made in the traditional Tudor kitchen and buy crafts--all made the old fashioned way--from the artisans working on site. Take the dog for a walk around the grounds to get a look at the farm animals.

  • This is a great spot in a beautiful location. If you've ever watched BBC2's The Repair Shop, this is where it is filmed. Lots of handsome old buildings dating back hundreds of years. It's a long walk if you want to see it all, but well worth it. Best to visit on a Wednesday during the summer when they have lots of artisan demonstrations and a great deal of craft related activities going on such as painting, corn dolly making, portraiture, brass rubbing, temporary tattoos and many other things to keep the children happy. Virtually all the activities are included in the entry price. Museum also has ample free parking and an excellent restaurant on the banks of the lake where the kids can also feed the ducks
  • Very interesting park with houses of different periods from Medieval to Victorian times. Good explanations given, in a beautiful landscape with lots of benches. Nice coffee shop with tasting lunches. Large parking space, even with our long vehicle. I can only recommend that site.
