Christmas in a Victorian garrison

Join one of our special festive tours and experience a military Christmas in a Victorian garrison. Step back in time and meet head cook Private Dobson in the kitchen as he prepares a Christmas feast for the soldiers.  

Visit the barrack-room, festively decorated with oranges, cloves and greenery, and learn about the life at the Fort for a soldier at Christmas, as well as Victorian Christmas traditions and ‘new’ fashions.  

The original range will be lit, and the smell of freshly baked mince pies will fill the air. 

Book your tickets on Evenbrite today and look forward to getting into the festive spirit in the warmth of the kitchen with a  mulled wine and one of Mrs Blenkinsopp’s delicious mince pies.
