Step right into Queen Victoria’s time - swap the sight of cars & traffic jams for the authentic Blists Hill Victorian Town where old-time folk get about their daily life, and you can see pigs, horses and chickens around the Town.

Meet the Victorian townsfolk, ditch your modern money in favour of some Pounds, Shillings and Pence, feel the delicious smell of freshly oven-baked bread and have a traditional meal at the pub, where the whole family can join a merry sing-a-long. And while you’re peeking around the shops, make sure to get the kids some authentic 19th century sweets to nibble on!

We all know kids love touching things (whether it’s allowed or not). That’s why most exhibits at Blists Hill offer interactive items for the tiny explorers to play around with. But if you REALLY want to make the little ones’ day, take a horse and cart ride around the Town (definitely cooler than the city bus...or mum & dad’s car for that matter)

One last thing - Blists Hill Victorian Town is dog-friendly, so even the 4-legged members of the family are welcome to visit.
