Attraction Information

At Bygones Victorian Museum shop as grandparents used to shop. Memories of journeys on the romantic steam trains your parents knew. Escape into the magic lands of fantasy where every generation loves to go!

Features include the Life Size Street which boasts a General Store, an Apothecary and a Toy Shop, and there are Period Display Rooms which include The Nursery, The Kitchen and The Station Hotel.And a 28ft working miniature railway! Cool!

It branches out of the Victorian era too and the WW1 Trench contains military displays, the Anderson shelter and a mock trench, none of which is too harrowing in focus for the smalls to handle. Plus they've recently acquired a 40s and 50s shopping arcade which makes for an interesting wander through.

More eclectic still there's the Fantasy Land collection of global landmarks and a range of historic games in the Amusement Arcade, some of which still work! The Peninsular And Oriental Steam Navigation Company (better known to you and I as P&O Ferries) offers a room full of fascinating memorabilia and you get guided tours of the whole thing plus availability for a really, really unusual party location!
