Christmas carol singers at Blists Hill Victorian Town

The open-air Blists Hill Victorian Town in Shropshire invites groups to enjoy a traditional Christmas this year. 

One of ten award-winning attractions at Shropshire’s Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage Site, Blists Hill takes its visitors back in time, over 100 years, to rediscover the beauty, magic and merriment of a traditional Christmas. 

Groups can benefit from a rate of £9.50 per person (for parties of 15 or more) for the Town’s two Victorian Christmas Weekends on 7th - 8th December and 14th - 15th December (10am-4pm) this year. 

They’re invited to soak up the Yuletide atmosphere with seasonal entertainment and activities, watch as the townsfolk busily make preparations for Christmas with Victorian panache and walk under falling snow as members explore the traditionally decorated streets. 

There’s also the chance to warm up by the fireside while speaking to residents in their cosy cottages, buy Victorian Christmas gifts, listen to the brass bands, sing-a-long with carol singers and take time out to relax and enjoy delicious festive food and drink.

Festive lunch packages

Groups visiting Blists Hill this Christmas can choose from a three-course festive lunch; a lighter lunch option or a mince pie and hot drink package for their members. The pre-booked dining experiences are available Tuesday-Thursday throughout December. All three options include admission to Blists Hill and are exclusive to groups of 15 plus.

There is free coach parking at Blists Hill, group leaders and coach drivers are entitled to complimentary admission when accompanying a group and coach drivers will be given a free refreshment voucher.
