Kentwell Hall Review

A wide moat surrounds this redbrick Tudor manor house with tall chimneys and domed turrets. Built between 1520 and 1550, it was heavily restored inside after a fire in the early 19th century. On some weekends from mid-April through September, costumed "servants" and "farmworkers" perform reenactments of Tudor life or life during World War II. The house and farm are a half mile north of Long Melford Green. Always call ahead, as this place has notoriously variable opening times—and a frustrating habit of not sticking to them.
