Event description

Description

Explore Christmas traditions which may be older than you think.

At the beginning of the 19th century Christmas was hardly celebrated. Many businesses did not even consider it a holiday. But by the end of the century it had become the biggest annual celebration and took on the form we recognise today.

It is on this guided walk we delve into what makes a Victorian Christmas and explore well know traditions which may be older than you think.

The City of London is awash with narrow alleyways reminding us of it's historic past and it is on this walk where we have the opportunity to explore their evocative nature.

The walk starts at St Paul's cathedral, through old streets of London, exploring lives the Victorians at Christmas, dipping into Charles Dickens' 'A Christmas Carol'.

Meet at statue of Queen Anne outside the steps to the entrance of St Paul's Cathedral.

No step-free access.

Reviews:

'Hazel was fantastic funny interesting humorous clever informative and made the whole experience very very worthwhile (I also think she ordered NO rain !!!) would love to book with her again thank you hazel' Karen

'An interesting walk and talk from St. Pauls to Somerset House, themed around historic Chistmases. The guide was knowledgable, humorous and had plenty of things to tell us. I ended up walking in places that I had never been in an area that I thought that I knew well and learnt a few things along the way.' Colin

'Really enjoyed our Victorian Christmas walk with Hazel today. It is really interesting to learn about some of the things that you see everyday in London and also some of the things that you don't see as they are off the beaten track. Excellent.' Tony
