Kentwell Hall Dining Room

Kentwell Hall Dining Room


Long Melford,
CO10 9BA


The team at Kentwell Hall welcomes a wide range of groups throughout the year; from early Spring garden visits including Snowdrop Walks and the dazzling displays of Daffodils that adorn the gardens and grounds of the Hall. To more formal visits including a guided tour of the house with the current owners.

Kentwell’s famous re-creations of Tudor life have long been popular attractions, and our Victorian, Through the Ages, World at War and Magic Weekends are now just as loved.

Kentwell is the originator of historical live Tudor events and our Tudor days remain unrivalled in scale (up to 400 costumed Tudors at some events).

Open Air Cinema and Opera Weekends are favourites during our Summer calendar. Bring your blankets, chairs, picnic and a bottle of fizz to enjoy a great summers evening.
