Friday Our door to door service takes you to the waiting coach for the drive to historic Windsor for free time. Later, we check in to the hotel for an early dinner before travelling to Kew Gardens for a unique night-time experience. Guided by snowflakes, the new 1 mile trail winds its way through the world famous botanic gardens, in a magical after-dark experience as Kew is lit up using over 1 million lights. Wander between glowing waterside reflections, illuminated fountains and grand glasshouses as Kew’s iconic architecture and unique tree canopies are brought to life drenched in Christmas colour. Along the way, gaze at giant light sculptures, bright and luminous, like fireworks frozen in time. Stand among twinkling holly bushes and Christmas trees festooned with seasonal cheer as plumes of fire dance to festive music.
Saturday After a leisurely breakfast, we travel to Southbank for our trip on the London Eye. Afterwards, stroll through the wooden chaletstyle 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, it’s also all about the food and drink but make sure you leave room for dinner back at the hotel this evening.
