A Victorian Christmas: Talk

Join Wycombe Museum’s Keith Spencer for this popular talk and discover what the Victorians did for Christmas. From turkeys to trees and cards to crackers, we owe much of out ‘Traditional Christmas’ celebrations to the Victorians. Find out why celebrating Christmas was so important to the fast-changing Victorian way of life.

Winter Woodland Trail and Santa’s Grotto
Explore our Winter Woodland Trail, meet the reindeer who pull the sleigh and their elf handlers, before making your way into Father Christmas’s grotto to get your special Christmas present. Please select your entry time when booking – this will be when you meet with Father Christmas. You can then spend as much time as you like in our Winter Wonderland Trail.
Tickets £8.50 per child
Friends get 10% off
Max 5 children per time slot
Recommended for children aged 2-10. One ticket corresponds to one gift from Father Christmas. Babes in arms and accompanying adults do not need tickets.
The Winter Woodland Trail and Grotto is part of our Christmas Fayre, which is free to enter and features stalls from local crafters and businesses, festive food and drink, carols and more.
Our Winter Woodland Trail is available at a reduced rate between Monday 9 and Saturday 14 December to explore to trail alone, without meeting Father Christmas and his reindeer. No booking required, just drop in.
