9. Blists Hill Victorian Town
http://www.ironbridge.org.uk/our_attrac ... rian_town/
Just to sum it up this place is basically a victorian town in private ownership that has been kept in victorian era condition. It's full of wonderful walks, mines, shops and places to eat. All true to the victorian theme.
I first went to this place a few years back with my dad, uncle and cousin on a week traveling the UK. It was one of the absolute highlights I must say, everything about it I just loved.
Being able to go into the pub and have an absolutely brilliant singalong with staff who dressed and acted like that of the Victorian era and then pop over to the iron works, butchers, pharmacy even printers was just great. The moment you step through into the town you just fly back in time.
You can even change up your money as you enter via the bank into old fashioned money just to make purchasing victorian goods that bit more authentic.
What really made it for me was the actors, they were really passionate and skilled in what they did, for example pharmaceuticals. You could ask them any question and be guaranteed an answer. They were friendly and always up for a laugh.
If you passing by (its just down the road from Iron Bridge) it's defiantly worth a visit for the amazing walks alone.
