About Steampunk:
Steampunk is an aesthetic based on a mixture of science fiction and the 19th century style, more commonly known as the Victorian era. It combines old with new, so expect to see modern day items made with wood, brass and copper as well as classic Victorian clothing, such as top hats, waistcoats, goggles, corsets, bustles and fascinators.

There's also a hint of the fantastical as the science fiction allows ray guns, spaceships, giant Octopuses and alternate realities. Whatever takes your fancy, there's always time for a nice cup of tea and a slice of cake!
