FRIDAY We make our way to Wiltshire, with a break in the Cotswolds, and arrive late afternoon at the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel, Swindon.
SATURDAY This morning we head for Longleat House, home to the Marquis of Bath, and a house widely regarded as one of the best examples of high Elizabethan architecture in Britain. Explore the House, with its traditional Christmas decorations and, after dark, the stunning Festival of Light, Europe’s largest ever display of Chinese lanterns. More than 20,000 individual lanterns and numerous magical scenes transform and light up the Estate. We return to the hotel for dinner.
SUNDAY We travel into Bath for our visit to the beautiful Bath Christmas Markets. You will find the centre transformed into a magical Christmas shoppers paradise in the picturesque streets surrounding the Roman Baths and Bath Abbey. There couldn’t be a more perfect and magical setting for a Christmas Market. Depart mid-afternoon for the journey home.
