Description

This December, Clifton House tours will look at the Christmas traditions in the Poor House, using original research and expert tour guides.

The Clifton House December tours will look at the Christmas traditions in the Poor House and how they developed through the years. Tour guides will use original research from the archives to tell the story of those responsible for bringing some festive cheer into the house in the 1800s and bring visitors up to the present with the Benn Dinner tradition. It will also include how they decorated the house during the festive period.

Christmas in the Poor House Tour will take place every Thursday and Friday at 3pm throughout December.

Clifton House is an impressive Georgian building, set in tranquil landscaped gardens in the heart of Belfast. Opened in 1774 by Belfast Charitable Society, the building was used until the late 1880s as Belfast’s Poor House.  It was used as a nursing home and hospital for older people and is now a unique event venue and visitor attraction.
