At the Farmland Museum

Discover farming through the ages and learn about the rural history of Cambridgeshire. Visit a village shop, kitchen and dairy. See a stunning 17th century stone barn and the workshops, which include a wheelwright and cooper. Say hello to our chickens. Try the many hands-on activities especially designed with children in mind; dress up as a farm worker, investigate the mystery objects and more.

At Denny Abbey

Explore this lovely abbey still featuring superb Norman interiors. At different times, it housed Benedictine Monks, the Knights Templar and nuns of the Franciscan order, the Poor Clares. See the Franciscan nun's refectory of the mid 14th century and the rooms converted for their founder, the Countess of Pembroke. Learn how Denny has evolved through the centuries with our displays and children's activities.
