Take a 'Christmas Carol’ Guided Tour
Join a Christmas Carol guided tour to see some of the film’s most memorable locations.
Starring the likes of George C. Scott as Ebenezer Scrooge and Edward Woodward, Shrewsbury was transformed into the snowy Victorian England of Charles Dickens’ classic Christmas story, with its ghosts of Christmas past, present and future.
Organised by the Shrewsbury Visitor Information Centre, this tour will take you to some of the film’s most memorable locations, including the medieval Town Square, used for the opening scenes, the cobbled Fish Street and neighbouring Bear Steps, location for Bob Cratchitt’s house and the Parade Shopping Centre, where Scrooge is approached by two gentlemen collecting money for the poor.
But you don’t necessarily need to join the tour to recognise the locations from the film. Take a visit to St Chad’s Church in Shrewsbury and you’ll be surprised to see Ebeneezer Scrooge’s ‘gravestone’ no less; a permanent reminder of the film’s production in the town.
