For all the history of a Victorian Dickens Christmas, try a London Walking Tour.
All the delights and delicacies of a London Victorian Christmas with Charles Dickens's famous story The Christmas Carol as your route map and inspiration. Deck the streets of London with balls of jolly. Scrooge and Marley and the Cratchits. This was where Dickens's imagination took wing and where the characters did their thing. And as you make their acquaintance they'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.
