Book a time slot to explore Stansted House in full Christmas spirit as characters from Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol welcome you to the house. As you make your way from room to room the characters will recount Scrooge’s experience in the famous book. The Ghost of Christmas past will let you reflect on what once was; the Ghost of Christmas Present will show the bounty and colour of Christmas. But as you descend into the depths of the building the Ghost of Christmas yet to come… will show you what might be. But as Christmas morning arrives, get to enjoy carols, mince pies and mulled wine in the beautifully decorated house.
There are multiple time slots from 6pm on both Friday 26th and Saturday 27th November. Please check at booking which still have availability.
Tours are one hour long, so book a convenient time slot. We ask you not to turn up earlier as each group is capped in terms of numbers. You will need to move from room to room throughout the tour and there are stairs required to the lower floors - disabled access available.
You will weave your way through the house meeting Dickens' beloved characters. You will be in standing in each room for about 10 mins, there will be chairs available if you need to sit down. At the end you will finish in the spectacular Victorian Kitchen - where you will be welcome to join us for Mince Pies and Mulled Wine and join in some carolling. There are steps down into the bottom of the House and up to the Kitchen but disabled access is available. The tour will take an hour and groups are capped at 15 per group to maintain an intimate experience.
