On the 6th and 7th of December Osbourne House comes alive with the Christmas Spirit. The public are welcomed to share inn festive delight as Santa and Queen Victoria themselves take over the beautiful stately home near East Cowes on the Isle of Wight.

A lot of work goes into re-creating a traditional Victorian Christmas including Christmas Games, a Carosel and jovial entertainers (great fun for adults and childern!)  Hear the festive sounds of the season and smell the roasting chestnuts in the snowy courtyard and meet Father Christmas and even Queen Victoria as you tour some of the festively dressed rooms.

And don't forget if you are an English Haritage member it's only £2.50 to attend.

Have a Holly Jolly Wednesday folks...
