Kentwell Hall and Gardens


Long Melford,
CO10 9BA


A wonderful Tudor event with over 100 costumed Tudors and includes lots of merry making and activities for all the family to join in.

Tudors will be in the main house, around the gardens & grounds and joining in all the May celebrations; musical events, plays, processions, dancing and pageantry.

Music and dancing is the theme! Celebrating is the word!

The house, gardens and farm will all be open. And don’t miss the spring lambs and baby chicks who will be playing around!

This year Kentwell Hall has extended the Story Book Adventure Trail to encourage children to get ‘outdoors and let their imagination have fun’. The trail includes nineteen stories and characters, and looking for them takes you around the gardens, grounds and through the woods and you will meet them all on the way. Characters include the enormous ‘Crunching Munching Caterpillar*’ to the magnificent ‘Gorilla who wanted to Grow Up**’ - and each and every character and book is represented in its own unique way.

* Box Hedge cut in to a caterpillar approx 6.5 yards long
** A wonderful sculptured 6ft metal Gorilla

And when you have finished finding everything, the Story Books are in the Stable Yard Tea Rooms to enjoy and chat about whilst enjoying a delicious home made lunch or afternoon tea.

Kentwell Hall offers a great day out for all the family.
