Description

Find the unexpected at Bygones. No supermarkets for our great grandparents! Wander back in time, visit our authentic Life-size Victorian street including forge and sweetshop.

Imagine yourself in the nursery, kitchen, parlour or the dentist! Arrive in the Twentieth century, take a break in the station cafe.

Marvel over our completely refurbished model railway. The display is designed to evoke thought and remembrance of the First and Second World Wars.

Take a thought-provoking walk through our recreated WWI trench, imagine your ancestors on the front line or taking cover in a WWII Anderson Shelter.

Travel from the Peninsular War and Battle of Trafalgar through the Victorian campaigns and WWI & WWII to the Falklands in 1982. With a vast collection of medals, uniform, militaria, can you spot the Boer War Christmas tin issued by Queen Victoria to our troops in 1900 still with its original contents?

Don’t miss the 1950’s and 60’s shopping arcade filled with post-war packaging and household items.

Bygones is three floors of pure nostalgia for ALL the family.

We are dog-friendly throughout so please bring your four-legged friends with you! We run seasonal children’s activities (see our website for more detail) and our Victorian Christmas runs throughout December. We have a souvenir gift shop selling confectionary, traditional toys & games, retro items and even popular merchandise including Harry Potter and Game of Thrones! Please see our website for the online shop!
