There is something for everyone at Blists Hill Victorian Town from looking at the Victorian cottages and shops, talking to the costumed demonstrators, having a ride on the fair or simply enjoying a cone of traditional fish and chips, while sitting in the flower garden.  

To obtain the special discount on 25 May 2018, guests living with dementia and their carers, just need to tell the staff that they are taking part in the Dementia Awareness Day.

There is plenty of onsite parking at Blists Hill Victorian Town which is free for Blue Badge holders and £3 per car for everyone else.
