Visted here on a weekend away with my partner, place is a amazing reconstruction of a Victorian Town set in the hills of Shropshire. Each shop was manned by a person who was dressed like a Victorian and also gave advice on different materials and also how they would have worked and lived. I would like to have seen more... More

It's a really good day out. The staff are helpful and knowledgable and the little ride area at the end is fab for kids (especially the man who did a few magic tricks for us). We felt safe and enjoyed the 'old money' experience by changing our coins in the on site hsbc bank. The chippy is fab along with... More

Excellent Museum, sadly in January some of the exhibits are not open or had been closed off because of the wet weather. Excellent restaurants. Some of the newer attractions like the boat house enclosing the Spry are not in keeping with the attraction and should have been more sympathetically designed. I was disappointed with the Clay mine experience although the... More

The kids loved it although the son number 1 got a bit frightened of the strict school teacher in the classroom and made an excuse to leave. I got called to the front for being left handed and had to promise not to write left handed again. I just type everything now! the traditionally made chips were superb.

Very good with some interesting things to see especially the chemist shop and my favourite squatters cottage. I haven't given 5 stars because a lot of the things were closed and whilst I realise we went in January the price was still the same. For value for money and for variety and quality of exhibits it does not come close... More

This is our second visit after a few years and there are lots of improvements and an area that was still under construction before was now available. The (new) entrance area is very stylish and would be great on a bad weather day or for school trips. Last time we came it was October and quite chilly so it was... More

The only annoyance what the fact you had to pay for car park it's only 2.50 but still... More

To start.. Be warned you have to pay for the car park before you pay to get in.. They ask you if you'd like to pay nearly £3 extra gift aid also.. We've been to another Victorian village which there was more actors/talkers although we came to this Victorian village in a Sunday.. So we expected it to be quieter...... More

What a great day out! Really interesting and so much to do and discover. All the tour guides so helpful and enthusiastic. The girls in the chip shop rushed off their feet but worth waiting in the cue for for some old fashioned fish and chips! The candle maker, a real credit he was so enthusiastic and made a real...
