We've developed a brand-new family attraction in the woodlands at Blists Hill Victorian Town. The Madeley Wood Company Outdoor Adventure, named after the company that historically ran mine operations on the site, is Shropshire's hottest new open-air adventure space.

The Outdoor Adventure features elevated walks above the woodland floor, a log-style basket swing, seesaw and lookout tower with a coal chute slide. Built among trees and inspired by the area’s rich mining past, the Outdoor Adventure also features wheelchair-accessible multi-level themed buildings, immersive play areas and a toddler zone with a faux mine-cart track, play buildings, a slide and miniature zip-line.

Families can get refreshments from our food and drink kiosk with a covered seating area.

Admission to the Madeley Wood Company Outdoor Adventure is included in our popular Annual Pass meaning families can come back again and again for 12 months! 

Is there a cashpoint?

You can withdraw money from our free-to-use cash machine, inside the Entrance Building or from the Co-op in Ironbridge.

Can I bring my dog?

We love to see dogs at Blists Hill Victorian Town. They’re welcome to visit with you so long as they’re kept on their leads. Sadly, we can’t let them inside any exhibits with food or our eating places.

How long will my visit last?

We suggest a visit to Blists Hill Victorian Town will take at least 3 hours.

Is there anything for kids to do?

Children love Blists Hill Victorian Town. There is plenty of space for them to run around, animals for them to see, sweets to buy and in the summer they can join in all the fun of the Victorian Fair.

Many of the exhibits have special interactive objects that younger visitors can experiment with, such as the Morse Code Machine.

During the school holidays there are great family friendly activities and drop-in workshops. Every day during our main summer season children love meeting the animals, getting stuck in at the fairground and taking a ride on the horse & carriage.
