Step back in time to a bygone era when the Royal Gunpowder Mills in Waltham Abbey is in Victorian Days. Children and adults alike can enjoy a brilliant Victorian themed half term where there’s fun to be had daily!

Step into our Victorian Mad Lab and visit the Pharmacy where you can discover aliments and the remedies Victorian’s would prescribe and even try making your own potion! 

Make your own Victorian Top Hat , roll up to our Games Emporium  where you can have a go at some of the games Victorian Children would have played such as Hoopla , Quoits and our ever popular Coconut Shie!  There's also opportunity to join our Education Team for a taste of how families and children of the Victorian times enjoyed a day at the beach! Professor Nitrate also has brilliant science shows lined up throughout the day testing some of the most peculiar theories!
