Good afternoon out in the February sunshine, interest for young and old, just a shame that some of the facilities where not open on the day of our visit.
The Cafe was open but found to be very expensive 2 cups of tea and 2 slices of cake £9+
Would go again but in a few years time

What a brilliant day out. From the minute you walk through the door, you are transported back in time to the Victorian era. All the properties had fabulous fires going, and the staff were very welcoming and very eager to chat. Their knowledge of the history of their property was excellent. The fish and chip shop was just out of this world - I really can safely say that they were the best fish and chips I have ever had. We washed this down with a drink in the pub. There is lots to see and do, and I am so glad we made the decision to buy the yearly pass. We will most definitely be going back there.

Good day out, something of interest for everyone. Most of the presenters in the shops, pub & manufacturing buildings were excellent at imparting information, with the exception of the presenters at the chemist, sweetshop & butchers, who hardly spoke a word. Cafe was good, with great coffee. Would certainly go again.

Must try the photograph parlour, you can dress up in old Victorian clothes and picture looks so real.

We were a bit dubious having read reviews saying Blists Hill was over-priced, but we found it to be well worth the cost. We paid for an Ironbridge Passport enabling us visit all the attractions/museums for a year. Blists Hill was so informative, the staff there were knowledgeable about their subject and took time to speak to all comers and explain and answer questions. We enjoyed changing our money for pennies and farthings etc which was a learning experience in itself! Despite the drizzle we thoroughly enjoyed around 4 hours of wandering around and had a lovely cup of tea. Only the food seemed a bit pricey so we decided to eat elsewhere.
