Victorian Weekend in Robin Hoods Bay

Victorian Weekend in Robin Hoods Bay

The cobbled streets of Robin Hoods Bay set the scene for this years Victorian Weekend.

Ladies and gentleman in their Sunday finest rubbed shoulders with young chimney sweeps and the odd smuggler or two as enthusiastic locals prepared for a fancy dress competition judged by Queen Victoria herself. Carol singers in period costume spread festive cheer throughout the weekend, while the bravest souls signed up for a storytelling walk with ghostly tales to chill the bones.

Victorian Weekend

Young visitors were treated to traditional Victorian games at the Dock and visits to Father Christmas. Music was very much at the heart of the event, ranging from a traditional folk night and organ music to shanty music and a roving accordion player.

The weekend is organised by volunteers and the Robin Hoods Bay Tourism Association and is usually held the first weekend in December
