I had a lovely day at Avoncroft Museum which is open air. National Telephone Kiosk Collection was fascinating. Some I remember and some I don't. In the modern age its easy to forget how poor the sound quality was in comparison. I also enjoyed seeing the old building as well as how they made their own flour using the windmill.... More

This is one of the strangest places I've ever been but it's well worth the visit. So many lovely buildings. They have quite a collection of phone boxes - you don't see many of those old ones these days and to see so many in one place is great. But not just that - windmills, the lot. My family really...

Avoncroft museum is getting more and more notice and good for them. It's a wonderful huge area of land housing restored historical buildings oozing with charm and stories. The museum also holds the ever popular telephone kiosk museum and a real original police box (always an attraction for all Dr Who fans). Avoncroft hosts a plethora of attractions throughout the...

This is a really unique place with lots of historic buildings of a range of ages. Most have been rescued from the local area and surrounding counties. The Museum hosts a range of events such as historic reenactment, fairs, a camping weekend in the summer. Another great place for keen photographers. There is also a miniature railway. This is ideal... More

Went here with my 13 and 10 year old. Was a great place to visit. The old phone boxes were great to see. The minature railway was 50p a go and a great addition to the visit. The buildings themselves were interesting to see and was great to be able to go up to the top of the windmill. Recommended.

We had a delightful day out here. The buildings are restored to a high standard and it's nice to see them in a beautiful setting. The windmill is probably the main attraction followed by the old merchants house. Using the old telephones in their boxes was a trip down memory lane. Refreshments can be had in the old Co-Op which... More

Visited today for the May Day family fun day and a fantastic day was had by all. There is so much to see and do and the best bit is that the children are free to roam, look, touch, get involved and ask questions! The staff are friendly and engage the children in different activities. Both my children loved operating... More

Had a lovely may day bank holiday afternoon here today. 3year old had a fun time & really enjoyed the extra may day activities especially the musical instruments. Anywhere like this on a bank holiday is normally pretty hideous but site was big enough to deal with it. We were at the Cafe late (4.30) but service was quick &... More
