Booking and pricing


For a discussion about what Kentwell could offer your school children or for more information, please give us a call on 01787 310207. We are more than happy to talk you through the different options.

A Kentwell Re-Creation is not cheap but it offers an experience of Tudor Life that nowhere else can give. The issue should not be whether you want the cheapest but whether you want the best learning experience for your children, which they will never forget. Many teachers bring children to Kentwell because their visit as a child made such an impact upon them. Some children grow up to be historians or teachers because of a Kentwell visit. People get married at Kentwell because of their visit as a child.

For the 2017 season, visits to the Re-Creations start at £14.00 per child, plus VAT, for off-peak times. They rise to £19.95 plus VAT at peak times. If you are able to plan your visit so that you arrive outside of our peak timings (by leaving before school starts, or by returning after school finishes), you will get the best value. We offer free entry for one adult per 10 children, also free entry for any 1:1 helpers or assistants required for any child.

As one our visiting teachers said:

“I visited Kentwell when I was nine and that visit made such a huge impression on me that I decided then to study history and become a teacher. The memory of that visit has stayed with me ever since. Today when visiting the bakery on the teacher’s tour, the smell and sights took me back to that time visiting as a schoolboy, and for a moment I became nine again. Thank you.”
