Do you fantasize traveling back in time? I have done just that around the Christmas holiday in the past few years. More specific, I’ve journeyed through the world of Dickens’ Christmas. Where you are transported to the streets of old London; crowded with dazzling shops of all sizes and shapes, selling everything from trinkets to the latest fashion. See the locals from afar or join in on the festivities at Fezziwig’s Warehouse dance party; but keep an eye out for Oliver Twist, Nicolas Nickleby, Scrooge, Marley, and even Charles Dickens himself!
Visit the docks and buy the sailors a pint for a musical surprise. Stop over in the Victoria & Albert Bijou Music Hall for The Mikado and get ready to laugh. And when the belly growls, grab a quick snack of cinnamon crunch almonds or visit The Tippling Toad for a more satisfying meal; but never pass-up the Heritage meat pie. Then quench your thirst with an ale at The Prince Edward Pub.
The sights and sounds of a flourishing 19th century London dressed for the holidays is a sight not to be missed. At every turn, a delightful surprise awaits. New year cheers abound, the electric atmosphere is abuzz with the holiday spirit.
