I wasn't sure what to expect when my family and I went to Bygones last week, but we were pleasantly surprised as we had a great time. Whether you're interested in the Victorian era or not so much(like us), then you are in for a fantastic treat. As soon as you walk in, you are transported back many years. You get a real feel as to how people lived and worked back then. There are so many things to look at and the whole set up is so real. It's on three floors and each floor has different things on show. If you are in the area, a visit is a must. The owners, the people at the front desk, were very friendly and welcoming. Well done, we really enjoyed our visit.

From the front you wouldn't think you'd get much for your money, but once inside you'll be amazed.

The fact that there's a full sized steam engine in there is pretty impressive. Add to that the Victorian shop fronts and olde games machines, detailed model scenes and even a WWI trench this is a great attraction.

This was our 3rd time of visiting and as always, we found it fantastic! We took our family, eleven year olds and teen and just found the attention to detail, the sights and smells so evocative of the past. Well done Bygones!

This is a great place to visit. We went on Halloween and they had spent a lot of time making it extra special. There are lots of fantastic things to look at over 3 floors. We spent half of our time reminicising about things seen. We spent a few hours there and the time passed very quickly as there is so much to see. A lovely cafe as well. Would recommend a visit if in the area.
