I loved the Victorian village at Blists Hill. The only reason I haven't given five stars is because of the price. It is very expensive to visit, especially once you have added on the cost to park in their visitor car park. If you are local or in the area long enough you can buy a passport for all of... More

Had a lovely day out here even though it was a wet, dreary day in January. Fab place to visit and they accept dogs too. Blists Hill Victorian Town is a reproduction town in Ironbridge. Well worth a visit if you're in that area. Built on a 52 ha site, we were there half a day and would have been... More

This is mainly an outside, living museum that recreates the sights, sounds and smells of a Victorian Shropshire town in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The whole thing is very well done particularly with the characters in costume milling about their daily business. You can call into the actual buildings and interact with the staff who enlighten you!.... More

Tickets were around £17pp, but down to about £11 if you are a student. The town itself is very well done and changing your money to Victorian currency was a nice touch. However, it was a bit disappointing that there was no information provided for the different establishments. The staff were available for questions (and very knowledgable and engaging), but... More

A nice place to visit 4 hours is enough time to allow the food outlets are reasonable both in price and quality the shops are are surprisingly good value for this type of place, good for kids without being too much

I spent a day here with friends as part of a tour of the area. It was great fun spending the old shillings and pence that you could buy from the bank. We were here just before Christmas and the town was decorated. The mulled wine was a great warmer. We also saw the Mummers play and the Punch and... More

My third visit. Each time I have taken another family member who wanted to see this Victorian village. Change your new money for old and spend your old shillings and pence. We chatted to many of the staff who had an obvious interest in explaining their skills and how life was in this era.

My son went to Blists Hill on a school trip towards the end of 2015 and thoroughly enjoyed it. A friend of ours brought us back in the summer holidays in 2016 and we bought 2 annual passports with tesco clubcard vouchers which then allows you to visit here and the other Ironbridge museums for a period of 12 months....
