One of the biggest private collections of village and rural life The Rural Life Centre is a country life museum, assembled by the late Mr & Mrs Henry Jackson and now run by a charitable trust. It is pleasantly distributed over ten acres of field, woodland and barns, and comprises a large number of implements and devices marking over 150 years of farming. Many aspects of village and rural life are also displayed in realistic individual settings. There is so much to explore!

  • Loved it, went with my disabled husband in a wheelchair, my son, daughter-in-law grandchildren 5 and 9 years and 2 dogs, very friendly and accommodating staff, a trail for the children to look for things and write it down, lots of things for the children to do, toys old and new, play area, definitely worth another visit
  • Extremely expensive and a total waste of time, even had to pay extra for a trian ride, no appeal to children under 10
  • Easter Sunday, Easter Chick hunt. Very interesting, educational, train ride great, lots of interesting things for our 4 year old daughter to do & see, highly recommend. Staff really friendly, lovely soup and bacon bap at cafe, a truelly nice place to visit - thank you!
