Victorian Christmas Traditions Tours

Victorian Christmas Traditions Tours

'Tis the season...

Visit Government House from November 19 to January 8 to see all the beautiful holiday decorations.

Ask for a Victorian Christmas Tour and hear how Government House is ready for the holiday season and learn how many Christmas traditions (such as Christmas trees, cards, crackers, etc.) originated in the Victorian era. Ask your host if you can hear a Christmas song on the player piano!

If unable to visit, why not visit virtually and experience the splendour of the season at Government House from your own home. This virtual Victorian Christmas Traditions vignette includes a tour of Government House's decorations and some holiday music played on our player piano. Join Amédée & Henriette Forget, their guest Eliza Parker and Mary, their maid as they finalize preparations for their 1905 Christmas celebrations. Go HERE to watch the video.
