Hello, I'm Albert the dog. Join me on adventures to the past at Bygones. 

And yes we are dog-friendly!

Come along with your family for a fun-packed visit. See, hear and smell life in Britain from the Victorians to WW2 and the retro Fifties. There's plenty to see and do across three floors with snapshots of 100 years of history, interactive displays, unique curiosities and quirky memorabilia. Seasonal special events run throughout the year - check out our 2017 What's On - and join as annual family members from £44.95 for unlimited visits, 10% off in the shop, priority for special events and other perks!
