Victorian Life was often harsh, with the poor scraping an existence in the slums. This meant that crime was rife and punishments were severe. Come and join Discover History as they show you what it was like to be a policeman at the time, but also what happened if you ended up on the wrong side of the law!

But the Victorians also enjoyed travelling shows. The Palace of Curiosities is a Victorian sideshow with a difference. Meet the Marcus Island Mermaid along with other objects that will amaze and astound you. 11am, free. Also children can make a split pin strong man puppet. 11am-3pm £1.50
