I am lucky enough to live in the wonderful and historic town of Ironbridge in Shropshire. We have a lot of museums in the area but the one that always gives myself and my family the most joy is Blists Hill Victorian Town. This is an open-air museum where you essentially go back in time and walk around the Victorian Village and experience life as a Victorian.
We visited the town this week and I thought it would be nice to share a piece of Shropshire with you guys.
You can also go inside the houses in the village and see the pigs and chickens in their gardens. There is even a fairground! There is a huge tearoom by the fairground, and a cafe on the way out of the town – so you won’t get hungry.
They still have the buildings open for visitors to see the foundry and all the places the villagers would work in.
Overall, it is just a fantastic family day out and I would highly recommend visiting.
