Come and be amazed at the authentic sights, sounds and smells of the last steam-driven Victorian brickworks in the UK. Follow in the footsteps of the brickmakers to see how bricks were once made here by the million and experience what a Victorian factory with its huge machinery was like.
There really is something for everyone, lots of hands-on activities for children of all ages. You can even have a go at making your own brick. Plenty of space inside if the weather is poor and they welcome well behaved dogs on leads.
Once a month all the machinery is steamed up and the place hums with life again. There are four stationary engines, a railway on site, resident traction engines who help put on a really good day out – no chance of getting bored!
An inexpensive family visit, with lots of brick related activities and family trails. Enjoy free parking, snacks, drinks and gift shop.
Bursledon Brickworks are based on the River Hamble with lovely riverside walks, and Manor Farm and Bursledon Windmill close by. Why not make a day of it!
April to October: Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday 11.00am - 4.00pm
