A Victorian Christmas 2018

Yes, the season’s most magical Christmas experience returns to Milton Keynes Museum over three weekends in December. We’ll be turning back the clock by a century to recapture the sparkle, fun, warmth and wonder of a true Victorian family Christmas.

Christmas biscuits and pies on offer in the cafeFrom the moment you are greeted by our butler with a tray of mulled wine and hot squash, through to meeting Santa in the cosy glow of his toy workshop, you’ll feel the Christmas spirit in every step.

  • Carols by gaslight in the parlour
  • Roaring fires where you can enjoy a complimentary glass of mulled wine around while the children play puff billiards
  • A traditional Christmas market where you can buy gifts you won’t find on the High St
  • Christmas crafts in the old schoolroom
  • Making hot buttered toast the old-fashioned way in the farmhouse kitchen
  • HM Queen Victoria in attendance
  • Freshly roasted chestnuts in the fully working blacksmith’s forge
  • Teddy bears getting ready for Christmas in their own toy workshop
  • Homemade cakes and mince pies, plus hot chocolate in the Granary café
  • And of course Santa and his elves are waiting to meet our young visitors – and give them a special gift to take away.
