A special visit - half-day tours, birthday parties and Fun on Tuesdays in the school holidays, school holiday programmes, and Live Days - it's all here for you to enjoy.
Live Days for the whole family happen every 3rd Sunday, where the Village comes to life with costumed villagers going about life in the 1840's, cooking over fires, horse and cart rides, a chapel service and a mock school lesson where you get to write on slate. The 65th Regiment performs drills and mock skirmishes and the Village dancers are awaiting to teach you a dance or two.
