NEW: The Hop Museum

Hop Story

The Hop Farm is based around the world’s largest oast village.

After World War II it was very popular for Londoners to come to places like The Hop Farm to pick the hops. Every year they would travel down here to work, renew friendships and also to have fun.

Relive this fascinating and recent history of hop picking with the story told in the superb roundels of our oast houses – bringing it back to life on the big screen.

The exhibition shows film and footage which give you an insight into the life of a hop farmer to the celebrations that accompanied the harvesting of the hops.

Also step into yester-year at the Yesterday's World museum and discover artefacts and goods from the past!


Magical Fairy Garden

Open during weekends and school holidays from Midday. Let the kids use their imagination to uncover a world of fairies and fairy doors. They will be given a list of fairy names and with the help of wands and wings they will have fun trying to find where the fairy doors are hidden. When you have made a wish, posted a fairy note and/or used the fairy worry plaque, you can then take your own memorable photos. Lots of fairy princess and super hero costumes are available.

Stay and play for as long as you like for just 2 tokens per child and adults are FREE.

We also host magical birthday parties where you can create your very own mini fairy garden to take home. For more information please CLICK here
