A Spring treat at the Weald and Downland Open Air Museum in Sussex

Posted 14 March 2014 by Andrew Gardner google authorship button

Weald and Downland Open Air Museum, Sussex

Spring has most definitely arrived in Sussex, and visitors to the Weald and Downland Open Air Museum this Mothering Sunday (30th March) will benefit from a special reduced entry price of £4, and all mothers and grandmothers will receive a complimentary bunch of daffodils.

Spring is undoubtedly a wonderful time to visit the Museum, with newborn lambs and the fantastic sight of the South Downs in this picturesque season.

You can explore historic buildings, see brewing and baking in the authentic Tudor kitchen, listen to period music performed by Kind Henry's Consort, meet the shire horses and traditional breed farm animals.  Many historical demonstrations will also take place throughout the day, including weaving, spinning, flax preparation, rag rugging, Victorian Sunday tea, and Tudor cooking.  As an additional treat, the Museum's Historic Clothing and Textiles Exhibition will be on display, focusing on clothing of the working rural men and women of the past.

Located in the heart of the South Downs National Park, the award-winning Weald and Downland Open Air Museum is a fascinating place for a day out.  Click here to view our cottages in the South Downs region, an excellent base for which to explore West Sussex.
