Lark Hill Place

Many original shop fronts feature in this wonderful recreation of a typical northern street at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th century, which has been brought to life with authentic sounds. Visit the Blue Lion Pub, marvel at the pills and potions in the chemists window, compare the home comforts of the Victorian parlour to the workers cottage.

Victorian Gallery
