Join us for a colourful weekend break as we visit the Southampton Christmas Festival and historic Winchester's Christmas Market. Our base is the highly rated Langstone Quays Hotel situated on the south coast between Portsmouth and Chichester.
This stunningly individualistic hotel is situated on the south coast between Portsmouth and Chichester, overlooking picturesque Langstone Water. Hotel facilities include a leisure club with a swimming pool, sauna and Jacuzzi. All the bedrooms are en-suite with a TV, radio, telephone, hairdryer and hospitality tray. A lift serves all floors.
Our door to door service takes you to the waiting Club Class coach for the drive south to Hampshire. Arriving late afternoon with time to settle in well before dinner.
We make our way into the great maritime city of Southampton for the Christmas Festival. Held on Above Bar pedestrian precinct, the festival offers much to see and do, with chance to search the chalets for that elusive Christmas present in the Christmas market. A feature and highlight is the unique ‘Flying Santa’ show, which sees Santa and his reindeers fly above the market twice during the day.
After breakfast we drive to historic Winchester, one time capital of ancient Wessex, with a magnificent cathedral. It’s in the Cathedral’s historic Inner Close that we find the super Christmas Market with more than 90 beautifully decorated wooden chalets selling a wide range of gifts, many of which cannot be bought on the High Street. The market features festive food, crafts village & Nativity scene.
After breakfast we bid farewell to Hampshire and drive through the lovely South downs on our homeward journey.
