A little expensive I thought. Better value for money when there events on and probably in summer. Possibly different price for different time of year may make it better value.

We went during half term, it was suprisingly not too busy which was good. The town is beautifully recreated and has a great selection of places to visit, the chipshop was an obvious port of call and didn't disappoint! We spent a good 4+ hours here so its definitely worth the money. Will be visiting again, especially after gettin an... More

We visited this weekend and were really impressed. The people were very nice and friendly. We paid a visit to the printer and when I told him I used to work in printing he said he knew by the way I was examining everything on display. Everything was good especially the bakery. The "Village Policeman" recommended the shortbread and it... More

We spent a good four hours here in half term and were lucky enough to see the hilarious annual pancake tossing competition. Kids enjoyed spending their old fashioned money in the butchers, bakers, chemist, printers and sweetshop - although as the day goes on this seemed to involve ever longer queues, so buy your sweets early! The schoolmaster was very... More

Decided to, at last, visit Blists Hill in Coalbrookdale, Shropshire. My parents had an annual pass but somehow it's taken me until now to make the visit. Flat gently sloping path to the entrance. Helpful welcoming staff, all with big smiles. It rained steadily throughout but hey this is England....... There's a lot of walking on flat streets and (small)... More

A very informative and interesting visit which was fun at the same time. Lots of memories of my "O" level studies of the industrial revolution came flooding back. Staff were interesting and welcoming and the shops were the best bit.

Wow , this is a really good living museum. We loved the film video at the entrance and the sound effects were great. We had a lovely walk all around the town and right up to the Incline plain. We will be back, lots to see and do. Loved the sing song in the pub.

Visiting in February, a cold and wet month, I feel added to the experience. We enjoyed looking round, met friendly and well informed staff in warm and welcoming settings. The buildings are well looked after and by the looks of it, the management of Blists hill are no strangers to investment in the attraction. The toilets were clean, and there... More
