Itinerary/Excursions

Winchester Cathedral Christmas Market
We take a scenic drive through the New Forest, created by William the Conqueror in 1079 as a Royal Hunting Ground. Our destination is Winchester, the stunning city dominated by Europe's longest medieval cathedral. Here we visit the Winchester Cathedral Christmas Market. Recognised as one of the best in Europe and loved for its unique location nestled beneath the iconic cathedral, the market includes over 100 chalet-stalls with a focus on British crafts and artisan festive foods.

Bournemouth Christmas Market
The Bournemouth Alpine Market boasts quaint chalets serving Christmas treats, stocking fillers, handmade gifts and local produce. It's a great place for a spot of Christmas shopping. There’s plenty to eat too with traditional hog roasts, bratwurst sausages, roasted chestnuts, churros, waffles and sweat treats…you’ll be spoilt for choice!
