“Excellent if all the attractions are open”
Reviewed 2 June 2012

The only drawback is that it is very expensive. Also check all the attractions are open seeing as you want to get your monies worth!. Best to go on a dry day as well as there is a lot of walking around outside.Really good though.I would say that it is better to wait until children are over 5 to really appreciate it. I have yet to take my nearly 5 year old, but have been there a few times with my older children.

“Excellent 'living' museum”
Reviewed 31 May 2012

Wonderful experience! Fantastic museum with actors taking you hurtling back in time! You can even drink and sing along in old town pub and taste real homemade fish and chips from the chippy nearby! Have visited twice now and will visit again in the future! Always interesting!

“A living museum”
Reviewed 28 May 2012

This is such an interesting place,full of history,the policeman riding down the street on his bike,and the people dressed in costumes from the era.The shops are very authentic,try the pastys from the butchers,or go back to school.Buy a passport and you can visit when you want.A must see attraction.
