Butser house in Autumn

October Half Term at Butser Ancient Farm

This October Half Term join us to witness the turning of the seasons at this magical time of year, known to our ancestors as Samhain…

This was a period when it was believed the veil between the worlds is very thin and was a time for communication with the ancestors– why not travel back in time and discover what life was like thousands of years ago?

Discover more with a themed trail, handling sessions, craft activities and more.

Plus, from Monday to Friday come and see our metalworker demonstrating smelting – the craft of turning rock into metal, and other skills first developed over 4000 years ago in the Bronze Age.

This is all included in your general admission price! Book your entry tickets here.
