Kentwell Hall is a Tudor mansion with an exterior largely unchanged since 1550. Today it makes the perfect venue to experience the sights, sounds and smells of the 16th Century by recreating the Tudor period.

Yet this was not the original intention of owners Patrick and Judith Phillips when they bought the near-derelict house in Long Melford, Suffolk, in 1971, to turn into their family home.

Mrs Phillips said they were undeterred by the collapsing roof, almost no electricity and water that had to be pumped from a well – but it was the “galloping inflation” of the 1970s which persuaded the couple to create their first immersive Tudor experience, so the house could contribute to its upkeep.

The events now attract more than 200 re-enactors each year who move into the hall – speaking, eating, working, playing and living as near as possible to how our Tudor ancestors did.…..k-44053719
