Travel back over 100 years at Blists Hill Victorian Town to experience the sights, sounds and smells of a traditional Victorian Christmas. Soak up the yuletide atmosphere with seasonal entertainment and activities and chat to the Victorian townsfolk as they busily make prepare for Christmas, 1800s style.
Explore the traditionally decorated streets then step inside and warm up by the fireside in the cosy cottages. Sing along with the brass bands and carol singers and take a horse and cart ride around the Town. A visit is also a great excuse to call into the Victorian shops around the Town, where you will find unusual Christmas gifts such as traditionally made cast-iron paperweights and doorstops, handmade plaster decorations, perfumed soaps and old-fashioned sweets.
Blists Hill, one of the 10 Ironbridge Gorge Museums in Shropshire, will be open from 10am to 4pm on these Victorian Christmas weekends of 7 and 8 and 14 and 15 December. For details call 01952 433 424 or visit ironbridge.org.uk.
