A trip into the past with this Victorian town. A great way of entertaining kids with an enquiring mind with lots to learn. Easy to spend a whole day so wear shoes suitable for a lot of walking and best visited in the dry.
There is great attention to detail, even down to stable lasses wearing hobnail boots. We visited the Bank late in the day and were able to hold a discussion with the teller who impressed with his knowledge and as an ex bank employee (with the same bank, albeit a century later) played the part to perfection. Listening to the photographer who was taking pictures of visitors (who were able to don costumes), we were impressed with the skill with which he made the subjects at ease and this was equally true of other staff we encountered. The children also loved the Victorian fair and it was great to see them get enjoyment from something pre Playstation/Xbox age.
To sum up, it is very rare that I find attractions value for money and even rarer that I will write reviews. A great day
To make the most of the day, arrive early and prepare to lose yourself in the sights, sounds, smells and activities of a bygone age.
