Torrington 1646 is an historical all weather tourist attraction that makes history fun! Travel back to the 17th Century with our costumed characters and experience life in Torrington during the English Civil War.
See how people lived, loved, laughed and lied their way through the English Civil War. Learn the secrets of the Herb Garden and the bum-roll. Wear the armour and clothing of our time and watch weaponery displays (weather dependent). Learn about the battle of Torrington and witness the shocking punishments meted out to criminals. Visit (if you dare) the Barber Surgeon, who will enthusiastically demonstrate his treatments for the ailments of our time.
People of all ages, individuals, families and groups, love Torrington 1646. You’ll learn much, laugh lots and, hopefully, get involved. And afterwards, enjoy some locally made refreshment in our café.
Truly a day trip for a holiday to remember!
