Holiday Fun, Day 22—Experience Illuminated London Town

Explore the Historic London Town’s gardens illuminated with festive holiday lights as you sip hot cider and roast s'mores beside roaring fires and experience the magic of a winter evening at Illuminated London Town.

London Town was founded in 1863 as Anne Arundel County’s seat, which lasted about 100 years until trade routes changed and the town dissipated. The only remaining building was the William Brown House. Today, families can tour the historic structure, or visit the reconstructed tenement house, carpentry shop and tobacco barn.

This winter, you can discover colonial nighttime festivities and holidays at a candlelit William Brown House, decorated for the season.

And the Chesapeake Revelers will perform Friday & Saturday, December 21–22 at 6:30 and 8 p.m. both nights in the William Brown House.
