“Wonderful experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2012

Fantastic living museum. Great family entertainment, a full day out. Children loved the Victorian Sweet shop, the old pub with singsong well received by the adults! All tradespeople in Victorian costume and character. The blacksmith was at work along with the baker, carpenter, policeman and candle maker. Good quality reasonably priced restaurant.
Quite a steephill and to fully enjoy plenty of walking involved. Most but not all areas are accesible by wheelchair
