Fancy doing something different on your family day out? Visit Butser Ancient Farm - a unique archaeological site where you can see what life was like from the Stone Age to the Saxons. And to seal the deal - it’s got an animal farm on-site!
Butser Ancient Farm offers history buffs the opportunity to introduce kids to our past in a fun and engaging way. There are different hands-on experiences every day for your tots to get involved in. Meanwhile, you can see reconstructed houses from 4 historic periods - Neolithic, Iron age, Roman Britain and Anglo-Saxon. And just to let you know, the first few episodes of Doctor Who Season 23 were filmed here!
As fun as the tales from the past can be, what really gets the kids raving are the farm animals. Butser Ancient Farm looks after rare breeds, including pigs, goats and sheep. Feeding the cuddly animal residents is a lovely experience that makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside.
