My husband and I had a really great day in the company of our son and his wife and two granddaughters aged just 4 and 2. Our granddaughters despite their youth found everything very interesting, the heavy horses, reindeer, the Squatter's House, There was a donkey ride which the four year enjoyed, the younger one declined. There was a visit... More

We visited as part of a coach trip to the local area. The weekends in December they have their Xmas activities happening so there was a brass band playing a choir, reindeer rides, horse and cart rides. It's a huge site with lots of uneven ground so wear good shoes. We walked all the way to the top of the... More

Been to blists hill a couple of times when I was a child, once of which for their fireworks display. I remembered this very fondly. So with my partners birthday shortly after bonfire night, the fact that she had never been and that I have wanted to go back since I was a child, this seemed perfect. It was very... More

Very much enjoyed our visit - although seeing my grandmother's rouge and my other grandmother's nail polishing stone (both of which they were using the 1960s) in the window of a Victorian shop made me feel very old! Plenty of interest within the houses and shops. Also some genuine traces of the former ironworks and small mines which used to... More

Interesting day out, walked around in many of the old buildings. Some very helpful staff with interesting facts about the various shops and businesses of the Victorian era. Loved the policeman and his dog, seemed to love his job which added great fun. As well as the bank clerks, a nice touch with olden money to use! Shame about parking... More

We went here as part of a weekend getaway in the Ironbridge area. There's Victorian shops where you can buy goods with Victorian money, swapping money at the bank. They also accept standard sterling. They have horses walking around, and actors. They also have someone showing you how to make candles, how to make casts for iron items. There's plenty... More

After climbing the stairs to the village we first came to the bank. The teller told us that we could change our money to old coinage to purchase things in the shops and told us about old currency which existed some of which I had never heard of like a double food in and a quarter of a farthing. From... More

Visited here with wife and sons last weekend and had a fantastic few hours. The highlight of which was Ms Burke (the Victorian Teacher) and the 1850's school room experience. Her rendition of 'All Things Bright and Beautiful' and the forced phonetic lessons will be forever etched in our memories. A must do if you are there at the weekend.... More
