London’s Iconic Secret Dining Experience Inspired By ‘A Christmas Carol’ Is Now Open

The Lost Estate in West Kensington has been transformed into Charles Dickens’ home; just as it would have been on the night before Christmas in 1843. Journey to Victorian London and bear witness to an incredible, cinematic production of Charles Dickens’ ‘A Christmas Carol’, amidst a magical set created by acclaimed designers, Darling & Edge. There’ll be live music from Steffan Rees, a star-studded cast, and a three-course feast fashioned by Executive Chef Ashley Clarke of SmokeStak and Temper fame.

As the characters come to life around you, you’ll try wonderful dishes inspired by Victorian delicacies, each chosen to complement the story. You’ll start with cod and oyster, which is actually a recipe created by Dickens’ wife, Catherine. House-smoked turkey with apricot and sage stuffing will follow, served with all the trimmings. And finally; a poached pear and frangipane dessert filled with Christmas spice and all things nice. All, of course, washed down with a great selection of cocktails. (Don’t worry vegetarians/vegans – there are some delicious-sounding options for you, too! Take a look at the menu here.)

The legendary Great Christmas Feast is famed for the excellent vibes it’s been bringing to London since 2018, but this year marks its first inside the company’s exciting new home in Kensington. The experience is the very definition of “immersive” and, believe us: there’ll be no Scrooges leaving the building after the Great Christmas Feast is finished with you.

The Great Christmas Feast runs until January 15, from Tuesday to Sunday each week. There are three types of ticket available, from show-only to VIP options. Grab yours here.

Secure your tickets now and be whisked away to the world of Dickens’ Christmas Carol.
