olde-worlde

(redirected from worlde)

olde-worlde

Very old or antiquated in appearance or atmosphere. (Sometimes said of places or things artificially made to look this way.) The cobbled streets and Georgian architecture add to the town's olde-worlde authenticity. They seem a bit tacky now, but I loved the olde-worlde trappings of renaissance fairs when I was a child.
