Go back in time to Christmas in the Victorian era at Osborne House this November
(PRWeb UK) October 31, 2010
Recapture the Christmas magic this year and visit Osborne House’s Victorian Christmas on the Isle of Wight, taking place on Saturday 20 and Sunday 21st November. Enjoy a weekend break with Red Funnel from just £105 per adult, including return ferry crossing, one day of admission to the Victorian Christmas and two nights of Bed and Breakfast accommodation based on two sharing. Alternatively, day trips are also easy, with prices for a family starting from just £64, including admission and Day Return Vehicle Ferry crossing from Southampton for a car and five passengers.
Osborne House’s Victorian Christmas is an annual Isle of Wight spectacular that sells out, so tickets should be booked early. Visitors can delight in magic and illusion at the side-shows, or enjoy a show from the travelling theatre. There’s carol singing and shopping for festive gifts, as well as hoopla, a coconut shy and the chance to take a look around the ground floor rooms of Victoria’s holiday residence, decorated for Christmas as they would have been during Victoria’s time.
The Victorian Christmas takes place from 10am until 4pm each day and entrance costs £11.80 per adult, £5.95 per child aged 5-15, £10.05 per concession or £29.60 for a family of up to two adults and three children, with tickets available through Red Funnel.
For those who’d like to stay on the Island, Red Funnel is offering two nights’ Bed and Breakfast in a double ensuite room at Hillbrow House, a four star guest house in Cowes, from £106 per person (based on two sharing) including return Vehicle Ferry crossing and entrance tickets for one day of Victorian Christmas.
