All the delights and delicacies of a London Victorian Christmas with Charles Dickens’s famous story A Christmas Carol as your route map and inspiration. We’ll deck the streets of London with balls of jolly. Scrooge and Marley and the Cratchits… they’re all here. This was where Dickens’s imagination took wing and where the characters did their thing. And as we make their acquaintance we’ll spice things with warming seasonal stories of turkeys and boars’ heads, Christmas puds, mince pies and pantomimes; cards, crackers, Christmas trees and mistletoe. Let alone the bells that rang out on Christmas morning to wake Scrooge up, a much-changed character. N.B. the walk takes about two hours and ends across the street from St. Paul’s Cathedral and St. Paul’sTube Stop.
