Try traditional trades at the Weald and Downland Open Air Museum

Singleton, Nr Chichester, West Sussex

The Weald & Downland Open Air Museum, home to over 50 historic building exhibits, demonstrates how barley and hops are transformed into ale and beer.

The Weald & Downland Living Museum is a quintessentially British hidden gem in the South East of England, in a picture-perfect setting. It is a museum for those who want to see, touch and even smell what life was really like for people living in years gone by.

Attend their Historic Life Weekends, explore exhibitions, take courses in traditional trades and crafts, and watch a selection of open-air theatre against the backdrop of their beautiful Museum. The Museum’s very own Court Barn, from Lee-on-the-Solent, is also home to BBC’s The Repair Shop series.
