The Trolley is in town on three Saturdays during our 2016 Season: Nov 19, Dec 3 and 10
Trolley tours depart from the Dickens Welcome Center at 745 Steubenville Avenue every hour on the hour from 10am-3pm.
As you wind
through the streets of Cambridge, a costumed guide will share the
history of the area beginning with the time pioneers of the Guernsey
Isle in the English Channel settled here.
Discover the amazing story of Dickens Victorian Village and the 186 characters that the community built.
“He was checked in his transports by the churches ringing out the lustiest peals he had ever heard. Clash, clang, hammer; ding, dong, bell. Bell, dong, ding; hammer, clang, clash. Oh, glorious, glorious.
Running to the window, he opened it, and put out his head. No fog, no mist; clear, bright, jovial, stirring, cold; cold, piping for the blood to dance to; Golden sunlight; Heavenly sky; sweet fresh air, merry bells. Oh, glorious. Glorious
-- Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol
