You will then travel to Osborne House to arrive approx. 13.30 hours. Take a trip back in time and delight in a celebration of a Victorian Christmas. Surround yourself with good cheer as the sound of music and smell of roasting chestnuts fill the air. Be captivated by Victorian toy makers, have a go at traditional games and marvel at daring jesters and their breath-taking fire shows. Warm up with a tipple from the Christmas courtyard and choose a gift from the stallholders and maybe sing a carol or two. After dark see the magical festive lights in the grounds whilst sipping a glass of mulled wine.
