About Butser Ancient Farm

Butser Ancient Farm is a unique experimental archaeology site nestled into the rolling countryside of the South Downs National Park; we welcome visitors and education groups to the site throughout the year.  This year we are celebrating our 50th anniversary, from our origins as an Iron Age research site we now feature archaeological reconstructions of ancient buildings from the Stone Age, Bronze Age, Iron Age, Roman Britain and the Anglo-Saxon period. Our buildings are internationally famous and appear frequently in documentaries and feature films. We also grow crops from prehistory and keep rare breeds of animals, such as goats and sheep.

We extend a warm welcome to all our visitors, including those who may have particular requirements regarding accessibility. Carers are admitted free of charge when accompanying a disabled visitor during our standard opening hours. Butser Ancient Farm is a multi-sensory visitor experience, ideal for those with a variety of learning needs and styles. All of our school activities and lecture tours are designed with accessibility in mind, please contact us to discuss any particular requirements or concerns.
