At Blists Hill Victorian Town you can travel back in time to experience the sights, smells and tastes of 19th-century England.
This recreated Victorian town is one of the Gorge Museums. You can enter a world filled with Victorian costumed characters going about their daily life. Exchange your money for old pounds, shillings and pence at the bank and then spend them in the Victorian shops.
Kids are enthralled as they see where the Victorian dentists carried out teeth extractions and experience a Victorian school day with a strict school mistress. You can explore squalid squatters’ cottages and feel the heat in the foundry, or find out about horrific illness and strange Victorian remedies in the pharmacy that’s featured on TV.
Come lunchtime, try the traditionally cooked fish and chips or delicious bread from the bakery. You can also dress up in Victorian costume and have your portrait taken for a memento of your day.
