From the moment you step through the entrance you step back in time. A truly fantastic place. Very informative - ladies avoid the bar told in not so uncertain words that women are not allowed in the bar!!! Everyone is in character and extremely helpful. Lots to see and buy - change your money into old coins and enjoy the... More

We really enjoyed our day here and found out a lot about Victorian times from the people who worked there. They were all in Victorian dress in the shops etc. We had a good old sing song in The New Inn, with a couple in costume singing and playing the piano. Even thought the weather was a bit mixed it...

We went in May and they were not really in full swing but wow it is a fantastic place! As you enter you could believe that you had stepped back in time. A lovely town with lots of people 'living' the life of then and happy to help explain what they were doing but explaining as that Victorian person. Change... More

I`m so glad that I decided to visit Blists Hill Victorian Town. A step back in time to visit the Victorian era and the way people lived and the work they did. Lots of live interaction with the villagers dressed in period costume even a good old fashioned sing song at the local pub. Not going to say much more... More

On a grey wet morning, a trip to blists hill seemed an unlikely diversion from the weather but I was very wrong. The rain didn't dampen the lively characters whose knowledge of the Victorian era was superb. Each house & business has been carefully rebuilt & stoked with authentic artefacts. You can also buy their wares using old money exchanged... More

Very different to what we expected. Absolutely Hugh and very realistic. Lovely to walk around and brilliant actors to make it all feel more authentic.

good all day visit, starts with a short film trying to explain about the old iron works, then a trip through a village starting with the bank where you are able to change your money to the old coinage of this time, a nice comfy stroll where you can find all the old shops as they were back then, bakery...

At every point we viewed there was somebody who gave excellent information. The fish and chip shop was excellent chips cooked in the way they should be. An excellent day out.
