VISIT TO BLISTS HILL, TELFORD, SHROPSHIRE






On Saturday 19th December we went to a lovely place in Shropshire called Blists Hill which is a Victorian Village Museum and as it was Christmas they were celebrating a traditional Victorian Christmas.  It was cold and frosty but we had a thoroughly enjoyable time.  They even had fake snow blasting out from one of the houses.  The people who worked there were in their traditional Victorian Costumes even down to a man dressed as Scrooge (even looked like him a bit lol).  We listened to a small choir carol singing around a small organ and paid a special visit to Santa.  My daughter really enjoyed herself and got into the Christmas spirit.  


If you live in the UK and want somewhere to visit I would truely recommend this place very much.


Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all.
