Enjoy Christmas in the traditional seaside resort of Bournemouth, where there’s plenty of time to relax and enjoy the festivities. We also have the opportunity to explore some of the highlights of the area, including historic market towns and picturesque cities.
We’ll stay at a selected hotel in Bournemouth. The comfortable rooms are en suite and other facilities include a bar and restaurant.
After joining the coach, we make our way to our hotel and check in.
Christmas Eve – Salisbury
On Christmas Eve we head to Salisbury, often referred to as ‘the city in the countryside.’ As well as being a great place for shopping, the city is home to a fine medieval cathedral that boasts the tallest spire in Britain and an original copy of the Magna Carta.
Christmas Day is a day of relaxation and leisure in Bournemouth, where our hotel provides a hearty Christmas lunch with all the trimmings as well as a light buffet dinner.
Boxing Day – Optional excursion to Dorchester, Poole & Sandbanks (£11pp)
Our optional excursion takes us first to the charming county town of Dorchester. This historic market town lies on the banks of the River Frome and is best known as the birthplace of the author and poet Thomas Hardy. We continue on to Poole with its lovely quayside, stunning natural harbour, fine beaches and historic Old Town. Our last stop is Sandbanks, a small peninsula of half a square mile crossing the mouth of Poole harbour, which contains some of the most expensive houses in the country and is sometimes dubbed ‘Britain’s Palm Beach’.
After breakfast, we check out of our hotel and head for home.
You will have the option to book your own flights independently with the operator.
