The magic of Christmas returns to Portsmouth Historic Dockyard this December…
Today’s deal is The Dickens Christmas Festival Advanced Tickets for All @ Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, from only £15.00
Travel back in time to a bygone era, where snowy Dickensian streets welcome you to a world of festive cheer, as you enjoy one of the south’s finest Christmas festivals.
Treat yourself to some well-earned retail therapy as you browse our Christmas market. With dozens of stalls selling fine hand-crafted gifts and curiosities, you’ll find the perfect present for loved ones.
Meet characters from Mr. Dickens’ most famous novels including Oliver Twist, The Old Curiosity Shop, Great Expectations, David Copperfield, and A Christmas Carol. Meet the fearsome Miss Havisham or the grump Mr Scrooge – you might even spot the legendary author himself.
Alongside the traditional festive entertainment, why not visit the brand new gin and prosecco parlour for an added bit of indulgence. Dickens himself was said to have been a fan of gin and was impressed with the new fangled “cocktail” on a trip to America in the 1840s – the Gin Sling became a firm favourite of his for the rest of this life.
Warm your spirits and raise a glass of gin in toast to Mr Dickens.
A trip to The Dickens Christmas Festival wouldn’t be complete without Father Christmas. Dressed in traditional green colours, you might be lucky enough to spot him walking through the historic dockyard. You’ll have to be quick though… Santa’s sleigh is ready to go.
This is one of the most talked about events on the south coast in the run up to Christmas – there is so much to explore.
As well as an array of Yuletide attractions – including Street Magic, Rides and Music – you will also enjoy access to:
