Weald and Downland Museum

I think my favourite museum (rather a sweeping statement) in the pleasant weather, is the Weald and Downland Museum near Chichester and Goodwood. Set in fifty acres of Sussex Downs, one wanders down woodland paths discovering C14th, C15th and C16th country buildings.
Some of the buildings looked lived in with laid tables, sparkling wood fires and unmade beds - this museum changes with the seasons: horses and carts working the land, girls spinning, a May Pole and a vast collection of pumpkins in the Autumn. It is peaceful and intriguing and in addition has a water mill providing excellent flow and a kitchen providing trays of simple food that may be eaten outside, near a lake full of quacking ducks.
