Hamptonne Country Life Museum gives the visitor a unique insight into the rural life carried on in Jersey for centuries.

Dating back to the 15th Century the house and farm are brought to life with characters from the Island’s past.  Explore the orchard and learn about bygone crafts and quirky traditions from the resident Goodwyf or Manservant.  

During the summer visitors can meet the Hamptonne calves and piglets in the traditional farmstead.  There is also an adventure playground for children to enjoy which has been built thanks to the generous support of HSBC. 

Special events will take place throughout the year for all the family to enjoy, including the annual Faîs'sie d’Cidre, and a sensational blend of sounds and cider.  Find out more about our history of cider making and Jersey apples.
