Culture/Sightseeing

Avoncroft is an open-air museum in the heart of rural Worcestershire near Bromsgrove. It is spread over 19 acres and has over 30 historic buildings, which have been rescued and reconstructed. There is also a traditional cider and perry orchard, period gardens and a wildflower meadow. We booked on a Timeline Event entitled “Ragged Victorians”. The re-enactors were brilliant, posing within and around the various buildings. Our ticket also included refreshments in the Edwardian Tea Room.

Among the many buildings is a medieval townhouse, a blacksmith’s forge, a windmill, a mission church, a counting house, a brewhouse, a cockpit and a tollhouse. Historical events take place throughout the year including the International Lving History Festival, the Travelling Auctioneers for BBC One, the English Civil War, Worcester Home Guard, Mr Punch, an Open-air Theatre and the Bromsgrove Society of Model Engineers. So, something for everyone!

I am sure that we will return with our cameras at the ready sometime in the future.
