Christmas Explorers

Immerse yourself in a Victorian family Christmas! Explore the beautifully decorated Bloomsbury home of Charles Dickens, handle some of the objects from our collection and discover extracts from Dickens' most popular Christmas tale, A Christmas Carol. Then, for the icing on the Christmas cake, ‘channel your inner Dickens’ by writing with real quill pens and ink!
These sessions can be delivered when the house is 'dressed' for Christmas from early November to early January.
