It’s nearly Christmas, and the merriment is underway at Osborne. Over a delightful weekend, we'll be bringing to life the best of Christmas in Victorian times. 

Visit our Victorian fairground and take a ride on the swingboats and carousel. See the amazing Addrian and his travelling flea circus or stop by Captain Griffin’s fairground stalls for a chance to enjoy traditional games. Young visitors will be captivated by the Victorian toy-makers, and can even make their very own toy to take home.

Don’t miss Peter Cooper and his hilarious show, Schooling in Fooling and the Celebrated Human Torch. Be thrilled by the Victorian falconer as he reveals a more traditional way of catching festive fare and listen to seasonal stories of winter birds. Nearby, jolly entertainers will excite and amaze with juggling shows and penny farthings.

To cap it all, our Christmas courtyard will be bustling with stallholders and carol singers. Grab a song sheet and sing along whilst you warm up with a glass of mulled wine. You can seek out Father Christmas in his magical grotto, or even meet Queen Victoria as she tours Osborne to greet her royal subjects.

Come to Osborne this Victorian Christmas, and experience the season of good cheer with fun and festivities for all the family.
