  • Victorian Christmas Osborne, Isle of Wight

    30th November 2019
    Osbourne House, East Cowes PO32 6FS, UK

     

    From turkey and crackers to figgy pudding and Father Christmas, the festive season as we know it today has its roots in the Victorian era. This December, take a trip back in time at Queen Victoria’s treasured holiday home Osborne to celebrate a traditional Victorian Christmas. As the sounds of music and the smell of roasting chestnuts fill the air, get stuck into traditional games and toy-making or take a ride on the carousel before marvelling at the daring jesters and their breathtaking fire performances. Then head indoors for an audience with Father Christmas as he tells yuletide tales amidst the festive decorations of Osborne’s spectacular ground-floor rooms. Also on offer will be carols, Victorian ghost stories and the opportunity to purchase any last-minute festive gifts, before you gather around after dark to watch Father Christmas throw the switch on the festive lights and gain a new perspective on the beauty of Osborne as you sip mulled wine and wander among the softly lit grounds.

     Sat 30 November – Sun 1 December
