Amberley Museum

We had a fab day out a couple of weeks ago at Amberley Museum, an old chalk pit which has been turned into a wonderful "working" museum. They had a Crafts and Skills day, where the children got to try our broom making, felt making, candle decorating, wood turning, pottery... so much, that I can't remember it all! If you are ever in Sussex, I would highly recommend the museum. The staff and volunteers are so helpful, knowledgable and friendly, it really is like stepping back to the 1920's!

What a lovely day out and what a cool museum. Wish it wasn't so far, but it's almost 3 hours from Cambridge. Sniff. Would love to see the blacksmith!

It's a great place Sybille :)
Sussex is a lovely place to visit... a few days exploring Brighton, Chichester and the rural villages would be a wonderful long weekend away!! H x

That looks a fun place for a visit! Have you tried the Weald & Downland open air museum near Chichester? One of our favourites.

We had great fun Caroline. Yes, the Open Air Museum is another lovely place... again during the holidays there are some great activity days for the children. H x
