Summer Activities at Blists Hill

Blists Hill Victorian Town

Join-in fun hands-on activities at Blists Hill Victorian Town over the long school summer holidays.

  • Join-in with Games on the Green – croquet, stilts, face-through-the-hole (passe tete), quoits and more

  • Get hands-on in some of the old-fashioned exhibit – try tea packing in the Grocers, see if you can set type in the Printers and roll your own (Plasticine) pills in the Chemists
  • Enjoy the thrill of the Fairground with fun rides and games of chance (a couple of rides have a height restriction of 1.3m, from £1 per ride)
