The UNESCO World Heritage city of Bath is fast becoming known as ‘the Christmas City’. For one month, the quaint streets and square between the stunning Bath Abbey and the internationally renowned Roman Baths, are transformed into a Christmas shopper's haven. Bristol, home to the Great Western, also boasts a colourful bustling market complete with wooden chalets offering unique gifts, decorations and delicious food
The 3 star Hallmark Gloucester is located at Robinswood Hill on the outskirts of Gloucester making it a perfect base for our Festive break. All of the modern bedrooms are equipped with an en-suite bathroom, colour satellite TV, radio, hairdryer, trouser press and direct dial telephone with internet connection, as well as tea and coffee making facilities. The hotel boasts a comprehensive leisure facility with an indoor swimming pool, sauna, Jacuzzi and steam room. Public rooms include a restaurant, relaxing lounge and Bar. As the hotel only has 3 floors there is no lift but ground floor rooms are available upon request.
Friday Departing our home area this morning we take a leisurely drive by way of the delightful Vale of Evesham and historic Tewksbury arriving at our hotel for a welcoming tea or coffee and biscuits with ample time to settle in before this evening’s dinner
Saturday This morning we leave for Bath and the whole day is free for you to explore the traditional Christmas Market. Traditional wooden chalet stalls will showcase the cream of the city’s independent shopkeepers and retailers, offering original hand-crafted gifts, decorations, cards, toys and Christmas food and drink. There are lots of opportunities for lunch as you explore the historic city before we leave late afternoon for the hotel.
Sunday We leave the hotel after breakfast and head into the city of Bristol for a visit to the German Christmas Market, with quaint wooden chalet-like stalls. Browse the stalls, enjoy the German-themed food and drink like Gluhwein, Bratwurst and Lebkuchen. Relax in the Bavarian Beer garden and enjoy your unique surroundings. Later we leave Bristol for home.
