I found the shops and houses interesting from a social history point of view whereas my husband really enjoyed the engineering exhibitions, so something... More

Blists Hill Victorian Town is a reconstructed Victorian Town located in Ironbridge - an area associated with the development of industry. We have visited 3 or 4 times over a period of 15 years and find in general it has grown and improved. Today we returned having spent the afternoon there (between 2.30pm to 4.30pm) which we enjoyed and paid... More

Lots of interesting things to do but some things were expensive. The Restaurant food was very overrated and dear for what it was.lots of things to see and try your hand out so a definite must when in the area.

Excellent family day out. lots to do. Our five year old loved the sing song in the village pub which suited us just fine. He also loved the swing boats at the fair.... Did not want to get off and the staff were quite happy to let him keep going. Best pound I've spent in a long time. if you... More

Very interesting place to see, lots for all ages my only complaint was walking up the steep hill not good if you have walking issues as saw several elderly people with walking sticks trying to get up. Perhaps they could run a buggy up and down the hill. Would liked to have had more information on the buildings and where... More

Went end of July with my 8yr old. Not bad but not great. Just ok. Don't change more than £10 at the bank as there's not much to spend it on. Take your own food. Don't buy the annual pass as like I said there's not much to do. Don't try and sit down at the cafe by the entrance/exit... More

Great day out, especially enjoyed the pub sing along and the school room. Quite expensive for a family but on the whole good value. Do make sure you visit all the attractions to get full value.

We recently visited here with our young children. So much to see and do. The attention to detail was fantastic to all the building and interiors. Our children loved the old fashioned fair ground. All the staff are in full costume of the time and you can visit the Victorian pub for a sing song. I would definitely recommend the... More

We really enjoyed our day, despite the British weather! In particular the exchanging of new money to old.
