Contact Details

Located in an idyllic rural setting close to Cambridge (just of the A10), the Farmland Museum and Denny Abbey retells an 850-year story of farming, communities and life in the Cambridgeshire Fens. It provides a place which enables visitors to explore Cambridgeshire’s rural history and locality.

The site consists of two halves: the Farmland Museum, a collection of farm buildings housing an extensive collection of exhibits, displays and objects, and Denny Abbey, a unique Grade 1 listed building and medieval monastic development owned by English Heritage (managed by the Farmland Museum, on English Heritage’s behalf).

Together, the site offers a family-friendly experience, blending a mixture of history, learning, activities and engagement.

Throughout the year, we hold many different events that are fun for all the family, check our website for the next one we have planned!

We also have our Docky Box tearoom open where you can enjoy something from our fantastic new menu which includes jacket potatoes, paninis, sausage rolls, cream teas, and an exciting selection of cakes and tray bakes.

The Farmland Museum, Denny Abbey and Tearoom is open every Thursday to Sunday. 10am to 4pm.
