About Us

Come and celebrate Queen Victoria's 200th Birthday with us! The annual Teddy Bears Picnic is still on so bring yours along too if you like!
Spot all 10 hidden teddies and complete the quiz for a sweet treat!
Normal entry prices apply.

Wander back in time, starting towards the end of Queen Victoria's reign. Visit our authentic life-size Victorian Street filled with all original items. See the Blacksmith hard at work making horseshoes. He is a valuable master of his trade, the equivalent of a highly skilled mechanic today. Smell the treats of the Sweetshop that would have been made fresh every morning on site. Listen to the hustle and bustle of everyday living, immerse yourself in Victorian life.

On the next level, imagine yourself in the nursery as the Nanny employed to look after 6 young children from an upper-middle class family. In the nursery, children would play with expensive toys, bathe and even start their education before being sent to private school.

As you meander up to the top floor, hop on the 27-ton steam engine en route! See the wartime evacuees waiting on the platform with gas mask, minimal luggage in tow and knowing little of what to expect. Upstairs, take a break in our Station Café for a range of cakes, refreshments, High Teas and more.

Marvel over our completely refurbished model railway. The display is designed to evoke thought and remembrance of the First and Second World Wars.

Take a chilling walk through our recreated WWI trench, imagine your ancestors on the front line or taking cover in a WWII Anderson Shelter. Travel from the Peninsular War and Battle of Trafalgar through the Victorian campaigns and WWI & WWII to the Falklands in 1982. With a vast collection of medals, uniform, militaria, can you spot the Boer War Christmas tin issued by Queen Victoria to our troops in 1900 still with its original contents?

Don't miss the 1950's and 60's shopping arcade filled with post-war packaging and household items. And don't forget to play on the original peer machines.

Bygones is three floors of pure nostalgia for ALL the family.

We are dog-friendly throughout so please bring your four-legged friends with you!
