Meet Father Christmas

Celebrate the magic of Christmas with family and friends at two special events this season.

Travel back over 100 years to experience the sights, sounds and smells of a traditional Victorian Christmas over two weekends of 7,8 and 14 ,15 December at Blists Hill Victorian Town.

New this season are pre-booked rides on the Mine Train to find Father Christmas in his grotto, where he has a gift for every child.  Look out for elves wrapping presents as the train takes you through the winter woodland experience.

You can also meet Father Christmas at the Museums new Christmas experience in Coalbrookdale, every weekend from 30 November to 22 December. Whilst here, pop into the Furnace Kitchen and enjoy some Christmas fayre including mince pies and mulled wine.


The Ironbridge Gorge Museums are open at varying times between the hours of 10am and 5pm.
