Absolutely amazing time yet again. Fireworks were brilliantly done. A few more places to purchase food and drink would be good to avoid such long queues but apart from that well worth a visit.

Well worth the money for a lovely day out. Had a ride in a horse pulled cart, lots to see and do. Enjoy old fashioned fish and chips or have a biscuit or two from the bakery. Well recommended.

Blists Hill is a fantastic place to visit for people of all ages. Nostalgic for older family members and an insight of the way it was for the younger ones. We have been several times including special events at Christmas and bonfire night. Ample parking...More

Yes, dogs are allowed and I saw quite a few people walking them when I visited. You might not be allowed to take them in some of the inside exhibits though.
