About Us

SUMMER HOLIDAYS- SUPER SUMMER TRAIL

 Test your Victorian trivia knowledge and spot Albert, Victoria and Edward who are hiding in the shops and rooms! 

Complete the activity to claim your 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.

See the lady having a new outfit tailor made in the Milliners with lace, silk and luxurious velvet all to choose from. In contrast, the 10 year old boy selling hot chestnuts from his portable brazier to earn money for his family to eat. He is wearing his only change of clothes that he has almost grown out of.

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.

Peer at the kitchen, in the servant quarters, it is filled with household appliances (some obscure, some you may remember your grandparents using!) Cook is exhausted from having carried the groceries back from the village for the week ahead.

If you were unlucky enough to have tooth ache, you might want to take a tot of Whisky before visiting the dentist with his foot-operated drill!

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.
