Entrance to Blists Hill Victorian Christmas Festival

We commence with a visit to the Museum of Carpet in Kidderminster. In the 1960's, 12,000 people were employed by twenty different carpet manufacturers in the town, but today only five remain. There is an introductory talk, with refreshments, before a guided tour which gives a fascinating insight into the 300 year old history of carpet-making in the town and includes both hand loom and power loom demonstrations. The visit is followed by a visit to the new White House Cone Museum of Glass at Stourbridge. Here, we'll be able to view one of the finest holdings of 18th, 19th & 20th century glass in the world. The museum which opens in the summer of 2018 will help tell the stories of how the local communities enabled Stourbridge to lead the world in glass manufacturing. From here we continue to our hotel for our overnight stay.
Experience the magic of a Victorian Christmas at Blists Hill Victorian town, Ironbridge, where the air will be filled with music and laughter, brass bands and carol singers, whilst you visit the gift shops around the town. Enjoy an array of traditional pre-Christmas celebrations from the 1800's; listen to the stories of life more than 100 years ago and discover some unique Christmas present ideas.
