The heritage site’s annual Victorian Christmas Festival began on Friday, beginning three days of celebrations to mark its 20th anniversary.

Such wintry delights continued all the way through the dockyard to HMS Victory, thanks to traders lining the path with their stalls.

These boasted handcrafted soaps, bespoke Christmas decorations, unique festive tipples and a catalogue of world foods
