It’s been some time ago that we’ve been to Butser Ancient Farm but I only got around to write about it now. We discovered Butser Ancient Farm on Amazon Local and bought two tickets to go in April last year.
It came back to my mind because people around me are talking about school holidays starting and what to do with their kids and family. Butser Ancient Farm is only one of many things that you can do but it has a lot to explore, discover and do.
The open air museum is situated in the beautiful landscape of South Downs National Park and has several building from the Iron Age to more modern history. When we visited, there were also people showing some traditional old crafts, making weapons, fire, etc. and sharing their knowledge.
Butser Ancient Farm is also known for cultivating ancient types of crops and potatoes and rare breeds of animals. Although we didn’t have the chance to participate in any of the events and workshops, I think it would be well worth it. So maybe have a look at their website or simply go and visit.
