Christmas is coming and it's time to get into the mood with the man who more than any other laid down a blueprint as to how the Victorians , and later generations, celebrated the festive season.
The tour begins at the heart of the historic City of London and delves straight into the old alleyways in which Dickens began his festive favourite A Christmas Carol.
We begin in an old alleyway that many believe was the location of Scrooge's counting house, we then follow Bob Cratchit as he goes down a slide on Cornhill on the foggy snow shrouded Christmas Eve of 1843. We then wend our merry way through a sequence of back streets and hidden alleyways that have changed little, if at all, since Dickens himself walked them in search of inspiration. We pass the ancient hostelry that may well have been the one at which Scrooge stopped off on his way home to enjoy his usual melancholy dinner.
We then venture into the churchyard that could well have been the one in which the ghost of Christmas Yet To Come confronted Scrooge with what the future had in store.
Via Victorian London's most beautiful market, in which we stop to talk about Christmas traditions, such as trees and treats, we make our way to a tucked away courtyard to see what may well have been the house in which Scrooge encountered the four ghosts that changed his life and transformed him into a man who knew how to keep Christmas.
With lots of quotations and your tour guide dressed in Dickensian costume you will enjoy a spirited walk in which every corner turned will throw up an historic surprise.
And finally beneath the shadow of the Mansion House we will turn our thoughts homewards with a spirited 'God Bless us everyone'.
