Its the most wonderful time of the year as we return to sparkling Kew Gardens for the annual after-dark festivities as the magical winter trail lights up the evening skies for 2023. Included is a visit to London, where we take a ride on the London Eye. We take in delightful festive sights as well as visiting the capital's many famous landmarks.
The modern Holiday Inn is set in 11 acres of beautiful grounds near Shepperton, ideally situated for our Kew break Facilities include a fitness centre, indoor pool, restaurant and bar. All bedrooms are en-suite and have television, free Wi-Fi, hairdryer and tea/coffee making facilities. There is no lift but all rooms are on the ground or 1st floor.
Our door to door service takes you to the waiting coach for the drive to historic Windsor, where we make a stop. Later, we check in to the hotel for an early dinner before travelling to Kew Gardens for a unique night-time experience. Be bewitched by the winding, sparkling paths, dancing illuminated fountains, tunnels of lights and festive fayre Stand amongst twinkling holly bushes and Christmas trees festooned with seasonal cheer as plumes of fire dance to festive music. A truly memorable evening.
After a leisurely breakfast, we travel to Southbank for our ride on the renowned London Eye. Afterwards, stroll through the wooden chalet-style stalls that line the pedestrian promenade beside the Thames. The traditional chalets sell all kinds of gifts, such as hand-crafted trinkets, wooden toys, jewellery, candles, ceramics, clothes and glass ornamental tree decorations. Of course, its also all about the food and drink but make sure you leave room for dinner back at the hotel this evening.
After breakfast we depart the hotel as we make our way home. We spend time for shopping in Oxford Street then return to our home area mid afternoon to be greeted by our awaiting taxis after a memorable break.
