Bates & Hunt Chemist Shop

The sights and smells of the Victorian Chemist is a highlight of any visit to Blists Hill Victorian Town. See the shelves crammed with jars and bottles filled with curious remedies and dangerous potions. Ask the Chemist about the popular face cream with arsenic and why the discovery of germs made disinfectants a bestseller.

Buy a bar of highly-scented carbolic soap, to keep the smell of Victorian England alive at home, or a small tin of breath-fresheners as a souvenir of your visit.
