The relevance to my husband is because no soon as we had arrived... More

Thank you for your comments regarding your recent visit to the Hamlet. I am sorry that you felt the staff were intrusive, we work towards the highest levels of customer service. As part of this all staff undertook training last year which focused on customers with disabilities, a great deal of this was about being non judgemental. You are right... More

What an interesting place! I last visited many many years ago on a school trip and was so pleasantly surprised at how much more there is to see now. The whole place is so atmospheric, it feels like the people who worked here have just put their tools down and gone home - so nice to go somewhere where things... More

We had a whole day at Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet today, I would recommend you visit. We went for the forging event with our 14 year old son. All he kept saying was wow! and fantastic! It has inspired him. There is a lovely new visitor's centre.

An amazing insight into the birth of the Industrial Revolution. The exhibits were well presented and most informative. A shame that there were hardly any other visitors on a such a fine sunny day.

We visited during half term with a living social voucher with our 3 children. We had never been before so was unsure what to expect but I found the whole trip very interesting. Our children enjoyed it although my little 2 who are 2&3 were a little young to understand it they still enjoyed looking round. We all particularly enjoyed... More
