Carols are traditionally folk songs or dances. Singing carols at Christmas became popular in the Victorian era, and many of our beloved carols were written then.

Visit Clock Court and join in with the grace-and-favour residents of 1906 as they sing carols around the Christmas tree.

Important information for 07-09 December

During the Festive Fayre between 07-09 December the carol singing will take place in the King’s Guard Chamber, not in Clock Court.
