Travel back over 100 years to rediscover the beauty, magic and merriment of a traditional Christmas at Blists Hill Victorian Town, one of ten award-winning attractions in Shropshire’s Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage Site.
Groups can experience a joyous day out at the Town’s two Victorian Christmas Weekends on 7 – 8 and 14 – 15 December (10am-4pm) taking advantage of a very special rate – just £9.50 per person for parties of 15 or more.
Soak up the Yuletide atmosphere with seasonal entertainment and activities, watch as the townsfolk busily make preparations for Christmas with Victorian panache and walk under falling snow as your group explores the traditionally decorated streets.
A warm festive welcome awaits as you step in from the cold and warm up by the fireside as you chat to the residents in their shops and cosy cottages. Buy Victorian Christmas gifts, listen to the brass bands, sing-a-long with carol singers and take time out to relax and enjoy delicious festive food and drink. Don’t miss the opportunity to discover the Victorian Town from up high on a horse and cart ride – the perfect December day out for groups.
