discover history with flambards’ indoor attractions

Flambards offers you a chance to travel through time with their award winning indoor attractions. From the Victorian era to World War II, these fascinating exhibits give you a glimpse into the past.

Victorian Village
Stroll through the life-size village to see what life may have been like in Victorian Britain. There are more than 50 realistic shops to discover, including a toy shop, tobacconists and barbershop. Visit a Victorian home and see thousands of authentic artefacts.

Britain in the Blitz
The exhibition has been called “an authentic reconstruction of life on the home front”. Wander the streets of London during World War II and catch glimpses of what life was like through the windows. The exhibition is also home to some touching letters from children who were evacuated.

The Chemist Shop Time Capsule

When chemist William White died in 1909, time stood still in his shop as it was boarded up and forgotten about. The shop wasn’t found again for over 100 years, originally located in South Petherton, Somerset, the Flambards team recorded every artefact and its placement, even the cobwebs! The team then moved and reassembled everything to the exhibition, where you’ll see apothecary jars, medicine bottles, pill dispensers and quartz carboy. Every aspect was moved and placed in the exact positions found, except the dangerous compounds and poisons that the Home Office confiscated.

Flambards has a number of other attractions to visit too, including a visual tribute to all who served in both World Wars, as well as extensive collections of motorcycles and vintage wedding dresses.
