Blists Hill Victorian Town

Experience the life of a Victorian Printer in this unique opportunity at Blists Hill Victorian Town.

Learn the art of printmaking and discover the intricacies of a traditional letterpress as you design and typeset your very own poster in the historic setting of John Edmund's Print Shop, which lies at the heart of our recreated period town and within the Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage Site.

As you step into the 1900s you'll be met by one of our experts before being kitted out in the authentic attire of a Victorian Print Maker. You'll be guided through the process of setting a design for your very own poster before printing it on our original Victorian printing press.

Whilst you wait for the ink to dry, you'll get the opportunity to take the short walk through the town to Mr Smitheman’s photography studio for a commemorative photograph before returning to the 21st Century.

Enjoy a delectable lunch at one of the town's finest eateries and explore the town at will upon the completion of your experience.


The experience runs from 10:00am to 4:00pm and includes lunch, refreshments and museum admission.

The course is for a maximum of 2 people.
