“Great for Kids”
Reviewed 10 April 2012

This is an ideal location to visit for all the family, no matter what age, especially if the weather is not too good. It is nice to see a little history of the bygone years. If you do make a visit, look for the mice on the pictures.

“Well worth a visit”
Reviewed 8 April 2012

We were on holiday in Dawlish and looking for a day out for a family with a 6 and 11 year old.We had heard of Bygones on previous holidays to Devon but hadn't bothered going before as we didn't know what to expect.WISH we had ! We were met at the desk by a lovely man,very friendly,and as it was Easter there was a spot the chick competition for the kids, they were given a pencil and paper to write down where it was they had spotted the chicks,they loved this and managed to spot them all. won an egg each and got to keep the pencils too! We got to try hats on by a lovely lady who even offered to take a photo of us on our mobile phone.The exhibitions were great, very interesting, and we all enjoyed it. The gift shop was good, and suits all budgets. A Great Day out, Just Go!!!
