Earlier this fall, we introduced you to London Town and Gardens, a historic house with surrounding gardens located in Edgewater, MD. Located just 7 miles from Annapolis, the 23-acre historical park is the site of the “lost town” of London. The park sits right on the water and features reconstruction of colonial buildings including the William Brown House.
While London Town is a fascinating place to visit any time of the year, you’ll definitely want to make plans to head out there the weekend of Nov. 22 – 23. On that Saturday and Sunday, London Town will be holding its Colonial Fall Fair, which makes the historical village come alive with fun activities for the whole family.
The fair will be held from 10:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on the 22nd and 23rd, and all activities are included in the regular price of admission. Tickets cost $10 for adults, $9 for seniors (62+). $5 for youth (7 – 17), and free for children 6 and younger.
The fall fair offers visitors a chance to experience life in a colonial Chesapeake town. Interpreters will wear period costumes and cook in the Lord Mayor’s Tenement while interacting with visitors. Colonial games and activities will also be available for children to provide a glimpse into what life in the colonial days was like.
While you are at London Town, be sure to check out the live archaeological site, where an ongoing investigation is underway in search of the lost city. This lost city of London was once considered for the site of Maryland’s state capital.
During the weekend, the Muddy Creek Artists Guild Holiday Art Show will also be running (Nov. 20 – 23), so you can also browse the gallery and perhaps do a little holiday shopping, too.
While you’re in Edgewater, be sure to check out the Edgewater Restaurant, a favorite among Yelpers. While the name is plain, the food gets rave reviews – especially the salad bar and crab cakes!
