Yuletide Peterborough Tour

At Peterborough Museum

Selected dates at 2pm

Archived Event

£5 adults, £3 concessions

Take a break from the Christmas shopping to join our costumed guide for a seasonal tour to discover how people used to celebrate the festive season.

Travel back to the Middle Ages with the ‘Lord of Misrule’ and find out how Christmas would have been celebrated 600 years ago. Find out what a Medieval Christmas dinner would have consisted of, what the original ‘Yule Log’ was and where we get mince pies from! Discover some local Christmas traditions.

Learn where some of our modern Christmas traditions come from and how the Victorians created much of what we do today. You’ll never look at Christmas quite the same way again!

The tour starts from outside Peterborough Museum on Priestgate. Tickets can be bought from the tour guide on the day or pre-booked from Peterborough Museum (01733 864663) or from the Visitor Information Centre (01733 452336).
