Devon holiday cottage Bring the past alive... life-size cobblestone street with Victorian shops

Bygones is a tourist attraction, situated in Fore Street, St Marychurch, Torquay. It was founded by a local couple, who wanted to create an exhibition of antiques and railwayana. They bought the old cinema in St Marychurch when their collection grew to include a 27-ton railway engine from Falmouth Docks.

One of the main attractions at Bygones is the life-size cobblestone Victorian street complete with fully equipped Victorian shops. The is a apothecary, a general store and a toy shop. Toys in the Victorian era were only for rich children. The poor children had to make do with piece of rope to use for skipping, or maybe a wooden toy made by their father.

There are also some display rooms, which give an impression of what it was like in a Victoria home. The thing that is so impressive about the shops and these rooms is the amount of detail, which you can literally spend hours soaking up.

Our holiday cottage St Anns is just a 5 minute walk from Bygones. Please call us to check availability.
