    Although my wife and I have both lived in the midlands all our lives we have never visited the Victorian Town and so thought I would check the cost of tickets. If the price for pensioners was £7.50 we would have made a day of it tomorrow however £25 for the two of us plus buying meals and drinks makes it an expensive day out and so something we unfortunately will have to miss.

    • Hi, that’s sad to hear – one to consider maybe the annual passport that is currently priced at £21.50 per person over the age of 60 years as this offers entry to all 10 Ironbridge Gorge museums, (including Blists Hill Victorian Town) over a full 12 months period. If you can visit a number of times during the year, you may find this more value for money. All the best, Liz

      • John Wilkes says:

        Was going to come to Bliss Hill with two other relatives from Kent.
        Our time is limited for the stay and so is our money.
        So we will have to give it a miss when we come to the West Midlands.

        • Hi John, that’s a shame you can’t squeeze in a brief trip to Blists Hill into your itinerary as it is such a lovely place to visit. I’m not sure if you are aware that you can simply purchase tickets for Blists Hill Victorian Town only rather than the Ironbridge Passport, (that offers entry to 10 Ironbridge museums) with discounts available for those over 60 years. Other cheap ticket options including redeeming Tesco clubcard vouchers for tokens, picking up free entry under the National Art Pass scheme or securing discounted entry with English Heritage membership if any of these apply to you? Have a lovely stay on the West Midland, Liz
