Blists hill is fantastic, a must see, suitable for all ages. The staff are freindly and polite, the chips are awsome, the shire horses are beautiful, the littluns can do candle dipping, the plasters are in fine fettle and the day out is just fantastic.

Had a lovely day here with my fiancé , arrived at 10am and left at 14.30, we found ourselves busy with lots to see and do. Very informative, the fact you can go into the bank and change money for old money in order to spend within the shops is a great idea. They had activities on throughout the day.... More

We got here for it opening at 10:00 and didn't leave until around 14:30. Every minute was filled with something to do and see. We walked along the canal to the incline plane which was a very enjoyable country walk. When we got back to the town it had started to liven up a bit. We went on the clay... More

The best day out for nostalgia and history hunters you could possibly wish for. It needs a good 4 hours to look round. Fond memories just flooded in. An absolutely amazing day well done all the staff

We had a lovely day the Bliss Hill Victorian town! The exhibits were amazing, and the staff were great answering any questions we had. We converted £10 into old money at the bank and we bought some fruit cakes & bread from the bakery and kept the change as a little monento of the day! We had a hot drink... More

We loved every minute of our visit, changed money in the bank, visited all the shops. Learned lots about home life and industrial life of the time, the ladies in the toll house and the squatters cottage were particularly enlightening but by far my favourite was chatting to the puddler in the iron works, what a lovely chap, he was...
