Time travel is what happens when you visit Flambards

Explore now...

Step back in time to the 1800s and the reign of Queen Victoria as you visit the unique Victorian Village. With an atmosphere of bustling streets and alleyways, hidden nooks and crannies, the village is an incredible all round sensory experience complete with sights, smells and real cobble stone roads!

 

Visitors can now travel back in time and explore Victorian England this February Half Term as Flambards, Helston opens its undercover exhibitions from 19-21 February.

You can wander through the life-size village and discover over 50 scenes. Gaze through shop windows, step inside the local pub, visit the green grocers, ironmongers, butchers, shoemakers and even the apothecary – everything from a schoolroom and blacksmiths to the fire station is authentically recreated with thousands of genuine artefacts.

You can also discover the world of William White, a pharmacist who lived and worked in Somerset. When he died in 1909, the shop was boarded up by his son who wasn’t qualified to dispense drugs, the shop remained untouched for more than 80 years.

The walls are lined with medicine bottles, apothecary jars, quartz carboys, demijohns, pill dispensers and mortars and pestles. This whole shop was carefully installed to Flambards as it was – lock, stock and cobweb!

The Britain in the Blitz exhibition is a life-size re-creation of daily life during the Second World War. Hear the air raid sirens and literally feel the floor shake as another bomb hits its target. A visit will illustrate what life was like on the Home Front.

Peep in to a wartime kitchen, a classroom and an evocative railway platform scene showing children evacuating. There are a series of fascinating letters to home sent from children evacuated to Cornwall in order to escape the threat of bombs.

Visitors can enjoy some delicious food at Flambards Village Café. Try a Cornish Cream Tea or tuck into some tasty sandwiches. Finish your experience with a look into the Past-Times Gift shop, next to the indoor attractions which is full of memorabilia and themed vintage style giftware; incorporated into this is ‘Humbugs’, the Victorian style sweet shop, with jars upon jars of treats that will get your mouth watering.

What more can we say except, “Visit the award-winning and unique indoor attractions including The Victorian Village and Britain in the Blitz life-size re-creations, and enjoy some top rides including the newest ride ‘Sky-Force.” (PLEASE NOTE THAT RIDES ARE ONLY OPEN FROM EASTER AND NOT HALF TERM)
