Avoncroft Museum of Historic Buildings

  • About
    Avoncroft is a fascinating museum of historic buildings spanning seven centuries, rescued and rebuilt on a beautiful open-air site in the north of Worcestershire.

    On event days you can see craftsmen in a 19th century workshop, admire the splendor of our furnished historic houses, or be transported to the heart of historic social and working life at one of our special events and exhibitions.

    At Avoncroft you can visit many buildings from different periods, including Victorian Britain at the Toll House, Church and Ledbury Cell Block; Tudor life in our magnificent Merchants House and String of Horses buildings, and experience life getting back to normal following World War II in our reconstructed Arcon V Prefab.

    View revolutionary machinery that changed the face of architecture through the centuries, as well as seeing our fascinating exhibits of traditional farm buildings, including a 19th century windmill, Perry Mill and our beautiful tithe barn, from Cholstrey in Warwickshire.

    Avoncroft can be a magical place for your wedding, as well as providing a superb venue for business meetings, conferences, lectures, dinners or concerts.

    Access to some of the historic buildings is restricted owing to their construction. Disabled toilet and parking is available and there are wheelchairs should you require to borrow one.
