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.

  • Love this museum. We were able to hit some of the presentations throughout the day and they were so interesting. The volunteers were really wonderful and excellent with our daughter, as well as engaging in interesting conversations with us adults. Particularly enjoyed both millers and the blacksmith. This was one of the reasons why we made a trip to England from Canada and it did not disappoint. Appreciated the free parking since driving there is really the only option to get there.
  • SUCH a great museum. It will take repeated visits to see everything properly. The idea, in case you didn’t already know, is that old buildings are literally moved here and restored to be allow visitors to experience something of what the world was like in the past. The mannequins may be a bit creepy for those who don’t like that sort of thing. But other than that: brilliant.
