The Victorians are often credited as being the ‘Inventors of Christmas’ by popularising many of the traditions that we still celebrate today.

During this special festive tour of the house, as you move from room to room, our team of ‘Christmas Experts’ will tell you about the origins of Christmas traditions and invite you to sample some of the authentic food, drink, games and music of the era.
The perfect event for getting into the Christmas spirit!
First tour takes place at 6:45pm and the second tour takes place at 7:4pm.
