There are Shire and Percheron horses, plus traditional breed farm animals, including Sussex oxen, Sussex Light chickens and Embden geese.
Activities run from 11am – 3pm daily and children must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Please wear clothes and shoes that are suitable for playing outdoors. Wet weather won’t spoil play as activities will take place indoors or under cover. The Museum’s waterside café will be open, plus there are indoor and outdoor picnic areas.
