A good way to get value for money is to buy an annual family pass, at £40 for a family of 4 for the year. This would give you access to the farm throughout the year (excluding special ticketed events such as Beltain or Samhain). You can buy these tickets either on the door, or over the phone by calling the office on 02392 598838.
We have a fantastic programme of special events throughout the year at Butser Ancient Farm, some of the best family fun days in Hampshire.
Some of our bewitching Celtic festivals draw a crowd of thousands, so make sure you don’t miss the excitement.
Beltain is our hugely popular festival to mark the start of summer, with a 30ft-high Wicker Man burned as the sun sets. Craft displays, hot food, live bands and a stunning setting make it a night to remember.
Join us for our ancient celebrations of spring and our Fairy Festival to mark the ancient Quarter Day of ‘Mid-Summer.’ Samhain celebrates the Celtic New Year in October, with a folk band, story telling, fire sculpture and ghost tours.
See the Great Roundhouse decorated at the end of December ready for the Tales of Winter Magic round a roaring fire.
Another highlight is Open Night at the Museum, an opportunity to visit the farm in the evening. We also have a Dig It Archeology Day for children.
Special events such as Beltain require separate booking. Details will be available close to the date.
Please note that dogs, except assistance dogs, and other pets are not allowed at special events because of the large crowds.
