History of the Museum

Dating back to 1555 and sitting on the site of Sanding Farm, Kent Life is said to be one of the most haunted museum's in the county. As part of the Allington Castle, it was once owned by Sir Thomas Wyatt, the lover of Anne Boleyn. Since then, it has undergone many changes throughout its 400 years, from Tudor through to Georgian and, most recently Victorian periods, with the last owner of the site being George Brundle.

There are many buildings to explore overnight at Kent Life, many with a vast history of paranormal activity, including a farmhouse, barns and an Oast House. The stories and legends related to ghosts and spirits that haunt the site are both tragic and sinister, such as the old gypsy caravan which sits in one of the barns and is said to be cursed. 

The site itself sits at the bottom of Bluebell Hill which is also said to be the most haunted hill in England. Ghosts and spirits include that of a German Fighter Pilot whose plane crashed on the site, a woman who died holding her baby in her arms, and another young woman who has been seen wandering around the pond near to the original Oast House. There have even been reports of sinister shadows and faces appearing at windows, as well as lights flickering and cold spots appearing from nowhere.
