Avoncroft Museum of Buildings in Worcestershire. All the buildings and exhibits here have been relocated and carefully restored. The scenery was lovely but the organisation was disappointing as this weekend was billed as "In the bleak midwinter" to learn how people coped with the depths...More

Lovely place to get to know Worcestershire’s history. There’s all sorts of period buildings there, with plenty to learn. Best to go on a sunny day, as there’s normally plenty of outdoor activities. There’s also a mini steam railway that’s great fun for little ones.
