Day 2

Blist Hill Victorian Christmas Weekend

Add a little Victorian sparkle to your Christmas as today we will explore streets from a bygone age bedecked with traditional seasonal decorations. Hum along with sensational brass bands and singing along with carol singers. Step in from the cold and warm up by the fireside as we discover the traditionally decorated shops and cosy cottages. Blist Hill is celebrating it’s 50th year of opening, so these Christmas celebrations promise to be extra special. A warm festive welcome awaits at Blist Hill.
