My family and I visited the Victorian town on the 13th December 2014 for there Victorian Christmas . So much effort had been put into everything and by everyone. All the shops and people and animals were an experience not to be missed. The prices were very reasonable especially the haberdashery. And the gentleman who did the calligraphy was excellent....

Really enjoyed ourselves here, even had snow (foam pumped from windows) Nothing was expensive, even had free candle dipping, for everyone! Lovely place, been before but never at Christmas. Reindeer, Horse rides, people dressed up and acting, craft sales, shops open selling gifts. Morris dancers, choirs singing, music playing! Lots of warm drinks and the pub was open, people having...

Having booked a few days away in the area we had a look at the museum website and decided to buy the annual pass to all the local museums. Despite the individual prices looking expensive this represents excellent value, given that it allows unlimited visits over a 12 month period and a single visit beyond that to any museum that...

Having enjoyed previous visits here, we were disappointed with the Christmas event. It promised the feeling of a Victorian Christmas but failed to deliver .It would have been lovely to have seen carol singers round and about, a street market selling gifts( there was a small indoor market but not much choice of gifts ), vendors selling hot chestnuts or...

Initially £16.50 per adults & £13 oaps was expensive however we stayed all day, not really on purpose, just got carried away. Carol singers, candle dipping, card printing & so much more. Yes, it seems expensive however for a Christmas treat (snow machine too) was well worth it x

My boyfriend and I visited Blists Hill on one of the busyest weekends in December. Loads of poeple arrived which first made my heart sink, but I was so suprised how big this place was and how much there is to see. All the staff was super friendly. The blacksmith made especially for me a wonderful dragon fire poker. What... More

We went along to the Christmas event, which may I add was nothing at all like it was described. It was a very busy day with long queues in freezing cold weather with children, to almost every display, nothing really worth buying and not worth the money charged. Atmosphere was tense. The extra paid on top to see santa wasn't... More

Lovely atmosphere and not too crowded, despite being one of their Christmas weekends. Plenty to see and do.

I also enjoyed a wonderful horse and carriage ride around the town for a charge of £1.00 and where it was also available for children to be pulled in a sleigh by a... More
