I've been visiting Bygone Times for many years now and back then it was a great place to find interesting and unique items. Since it has expanded unfortunately the quality has deteriorated dramatically and the prices are simply too inflated to ever find a bargain....More

About 3 years ago i wrote a rather scathing (justified) review of bygone times. I recently returned and immediately realised the place has massively improved. The cafe area was clean and very well organised staff were very pleasant and attentive. The stalls appear to have...More

I returned to this attraction this year, after not visiting for several years, and was very disappointed. - Most of the interesting antique and second-hand stalls had disappeared, and more and more bedding, furniture and other "outlet" areas appeared in their place, -- It really...More

Well I’ve never seen so much stuff under one roof. You name it you’ll find it in here. Anything from expensive antiques to a pot plant. Well worth a few hours visit, staff were friendly and helpful and parking was easy. There is a £2.50...More

Must initially say that I object to having to pay to enter this place. Essentially an old mill where people rent space to sell their antiques. Much of a muchness with a lot of similar stalls. Also a bit expensive compared to other similar antiques...More
