“FAB DAY”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2012

Absolutly lovely day out with the family, must say the fish and hips were to die for. It bought back some wonderful memories for my nan, she still has a lot of the bits and bobs which were shown in the butchers and chemist. Just goes to show it wasnt so long back we lived in times like that. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED !!

“A great day out.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2012

Have been to a few open air museums "experiences" - this is the best, combining re-creation of the period with street theatre.

“Great day out for the whole family.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2012

Having visited whilst at school some 16 years ago it was only right to revisit now that we live in Telford. We where not disappointed. This is a genuin Victorian working village. There is something for every one. The fish and chip shop is a must cooked the old fashioned way in beef dripping and they are to die for. The sweet shop is also amust. From the moment you get there changing your money to old English. To the moment you leave. The pub is great no larger only old school drinks. The butchers and bakers have some good things to sell. The doctors is an eye opener. Candle makers and carpenters are interesting as are houses. The fair ground is a lot of fun. The blacksmiths and iron forgers and mine shaft operator is a wealth of knowledge. Book your self in for an Victorian photo they are great. The list of things to do is endless.
