Mothers enter free on Mothering Sunday at the Weald & Downland Living Museum

All visitors to the Weald & Downland Museum can enjoy a fascinating range of free talks, try family-friendly craft activities, watch traditional demonstrations and see the new spring lambs, but this Sunday, mothers will enter for free. Mothers and grandmothers will also receive a free daffodil posy during their visit.

The Museum’s Wattle & Daub café, open 9.30am-4.00pm, will be serving a special Mothering Sunday brunch, as well as delicious afternoon teas (pre-booking essential) in addition to its enticing breakfast and lunch menu.

With a fascinating collection of more than 50 rescued rural buildings set in a beautiful 40-acre site within the South Downs National Park, the Weald & Downland Living Museum is where visitors can learn of the people who lived and worked in them, from Anglo-Saxon to Edwardian times. There is a lot to see, including: homes and historic gardens, farm animals and farming heritage, crafts and trade workshops, beautiful woodland, pasture and wildflower meadows. Look out for the Shire and Percheron horses, Sussex oxen, Southdown sheep and traditional breed farm animals including chickens and geese.

Information for visitors: Regular admission charges apply (free for Annual Members) and the Museum will open at 10.30am and close at 4.00pm. Please note that all activities and talks are subject to change and some carry a small charge or request a donation. Dogs on leads are welcome (including in the café) and there is ample free parking. Please wear clothes and shoes that are suitable for playing outdoors. Visitors with disabilities are advised to refer to the Museum’s accessibility pages in advance of their visit: www.wealddown.co.uk/visit/accessibility.
