Holiday Itinerary Christmas in Bournemouth
After joining the coach, we make our way to our hotel and check in.
Christmas Eve - The Watercress Line and Winchester
This morning we head to the picturesque Georgian market town of Alresford where we board our festive train carriage on the heritage Mid Hants Railway, affectionately known as the Watercress Line due to its connection with transporting watercress from the beds in Alresford to London. This enchanting trip is joined by Santa and his helpers and includes wine, mince pies and a gift (plus plenty of Christmas songs!) as we enjoy a scenic journey through the beautiful Hampshire countryside on one of the steepest graded lines in the country.
Afterwards we rejoin the coach and travel to the medieval city of Winchester for some free time. Ancient capital of England, Winchester has a rich history, with ancient walls, a medieval Round Table, a magnificent military past and an awe-inspiring Norman cathedral which houses the tomb of the author Jane Austen and the Winchester Bible, one of the finest 12th-century bibles to have survived.
In the evening, attend Midnight Mass if you wish (transfer not included) before enjoying mulled wine and mince pies back at the hotel.
Christmas Day is a lovely day of celebration as our hotel provides a hearty Christmas lunch with all the trimmings followed by Christmas cake, tea and coffee plus a light buffet dinner in the evening.
Boxing Day - Bournemouth and the New Forest
Our day begins with a trip to the seaside as we visit the traditional resort of Bournemouth. Boasting seven miles of golden sands and a historic pier, this is the perfect place for a stroll to blow away the cobwebs!
Later, we travel back to the hotel via the idyllic New Forest, England’s smallest National Park, famous for its tranquil ambience and free roaming ponies. We stop en-route in the pretty village of Brockenhurst with its old-world charm, independent shops and quaint cafés.
After breakfast, we check out of our hotel and head for home.
