  • Visitor Information

Taking their inspiration from times gone by, with period and historical styled pieces, Past Times has all kinds of gifts for the more nostalgically inclined. Their gold, silver and gemstone rings are very reasonably priced and they have a range of wooden crafted board games and parlour games. An unusual gift is the Victorian Zoetrope (often considered the forerunner of the motion picture we know and love)which is a spinning wheel into which can be inserted a series of images to give an animated effect.
