Christmas Themed Breaks
From its canals to its world famous museums, Amsterdam is one of the most romantic and beautiful cities in Europe. Although an excellent short break all the year round, during the winter Amsterdam lights up from the start of December until mid-January, as artists from around the world illuminate the city’s architecture.
Chatsworth is the magnificent Derbyshire home of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire. It is a place of great beauty and history set amid breath-taking scenery. This special weekend break takes us to see the house all dressed up for the Christmas season. Decorated with foliage, lights and candles, as well as scenes to evoke the spirit of Christmas, the house is a superb Peak District gem.
Why not wrap up warm and explore the garden at Coleton Fishacre as it is aglow with festive light? The streams, beautiful trees and exotic features of the garden will be lit for Christmas in spectacular fashion and the house decorated for a 1920s Christmas party
Accessed only by the famous Drachenfelsbahn cog wheel railway, the Drachenfels Christmas Markets within Drachenburg Castle make a great excursion. Perched high above the Rhine in extensive grounds filled with ancient trees, the castle is a delight to explore and allows guests to experience the splendour of the past
Based on the outskirts of Norwich this delightful pre-Christmas weekend break features the fabulous Christmas show at Thursford. An exciting blend of Christmas songs, carols, dazzling dancers, beautiful costumes, outstanding music and singing from a cast of over 100.
