  • Excellent educational experience for adults and children. Brilliant way to learn about some of Sheffield's industrial crucible steel making and scythe blade forging. The volunteers are knowledgeable and friendly and help with your understanding. I definitely recommend downloading the app (links on their website) before setting off.
  • Absolutely excellent information and experience considering entry is £3 (I think). I did a blacksmithing experience for 3 hours with David the resident blacksmith and access was included in the cost. Lovely set of buildings and information. The information is just in depth enough for an adult wanting a nice quick trip around a very interesting industrial historic area. There was a brief and helpful video too. It's very well written so would likely be perfectly readable by an older child, or a younger child with an adult by their side. The hot chocolate was very nice too, and the staff all very cheery and friendly, even for Sheffield! Would highly recommend Forge Four Blacksmithing experiences too.
  • Great little find. Informative for all ages. Good visitor centre and helpful staff.
  • Very interesting if you are into industrial history. Parking iffy
  • Great to find out about old industry in Sheffield. Bit slippy on a rainy day though! And need to keep a 2 year old in check!
