Guided Tour – Victorian Colchester at Christmas

Sat, December 14, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

As Christmas approaches join our costumed guide for a tour of Victorian Colchester. Many of Colchester’s most impressive buildings date from the Victorian period, as of course do many of the most popular festive traditions. Discover the fascinating history of both as well as some great Colchester stories from the time.

This tour is an eclectic mix of seasonal stories, ghosts and beliefs. Additionally it will illustrate how Colchester was transformed from an economically depressed country town into a growing, thriving town full of Victorian civic pride and philanthropic personalities.

The tour will finish at the Batte- Lay Tiptree Tearoom in The Minories Galleries. Book your ticket by December 7th and it will include a FREE 2 for 1 cream tea voucher that can be used on the day.

Advanced booking is required. Please book your place in person or by phone (01206 282920) from the Visitor Information Centre
