West Stow Anglo-Saxon Village - one of the UK’s great archaeological sites...
West Stow Anglo-Saxon Village - one of the UK’s great archaeological sites - is a stunning recreation of the Anglo-Saxon settlement that occupied the site between 450-650 AD.
There is lots to see and do at West Stow throughout the year. Wander through the village and imagine what life would have been like for the Anglo-Saxons who lived here. Visit the Museum to see hundreds of fascinating finds excavated from beneath your feet. Dress up as an Anglo-Saxon, become an archaeologist in our Mini-Dig and don't forget to meet the pigs and chickens!
After visiting the Village, make sure you explore the historic landscape of our 125 acre Country Park. A large area of the park has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) as it is home to a variety of rare Breckland species.
We run lots of exciting events from battle re-enactments to bushcraft.
