Lots of great entertainment, but I missed the hilarious bawdiness I recalled from the last time I went. Besides the entertainment, all you can do there is buy lovely but somewhat pricey stuff!

It was okay. That pretty much says it all. Some of the voices in the performances were actually bad. Not the whole performance but there were some bad moments. The sound system in Fizziwigs was really poor. I did not get that zing of...continued

Great atmosphere and very family friendly! Food is yummy with great variety. The people who volunteer as characters there are awesome, the items for sale are creative. This is not our first trip and won't be our last.

So much fun! This will get you into the Christmas spirit. There's plenty of food – I especially love the frosted nuts, and tons of shows. Many people dress up in the attire of the time period. Quite festive!

I have always wanted to go to this event. It could be lit up nicer, more enviting pathways, and the shops are nothing to get excited about ( we came expecting to find a few special Xmas gifts). The hair braiding shop was a lot of fun and the...continued

It is such a magical event for adults and kids alike. Without this type of deal it can be a bit pricey though so I am very thankful it was offered on Goldstar! Please offer it again.

We loved it! Next year we will dress up. Bring cash for parking and food although they do have ATM's. Going the day after Thanksgiving was perfect for me as I am in a wheelchair and it was not too crowded in the morning - I will say it was hard to...continued

Great day out in jolly ol' London with some friends. Food and drink selection were great and the novelty factor remained throughout the course of the day. Look forward to next year!

Had a lot of fun. We were with a large group of people, so that was the biggest issue- the place is large and had several interests. Myself I loved the amazing crafters, and even splurged on a few Christmas items. Food was great, a large variety...continued

I'd rather go here than black Friday shopping. Where else can you go where the holiday are celebrated, you can get fish and chips, bangers and mash, cookies, spiced nuts, sing a song or two, watch many show and plays, and wander shops? Bring...continued

It felt like you were in a old period in London, England and the food was quite authentic. Make sure you get your French Postcard tickets very early, they run out very quickly (this show is for 18+ only. We go every year and it is always fun and...continued

Many different performances throughout the day in different locations so you can see exhibits as you walk to them. The crafts on sale were very unique and different. A great way to spend day.
