Your self-guided tour means you are free to roam at your own pace, however there may be interpreters at the blacksmith or trade venues.
There are regular events held in character with the setting which are extra fun for families too, so keep an eye out for those! In spring and summer you may take a tour of the heirloom garden and learn about the vegetables of yesteryear!
