Day One

Leaving the local area in the early morning we'll travel to London and our overnight hotel. After check-in we'll head to the Royal Albert Hall for the highlight of our break - 'Christmas Carols with the Stars'.

This marvellous show mixes traditional carol singalongs with children's choirs, a brass band, fantastic festive tunes and appearances by well-known celebrities. At the end of the concert, the coach will be waiting to take you back to your hotel.

Day Two

After breakfast, you'll leave your hotel for some sightseeing or the chance to do some Christmas shopping around Oxford Street, Knightsbridge and High Street Kensington. Alternatively, you may prefer to remain on the coach and enjoy a short sightseeing tour, which will take you past such world-famous attractions as St. Paul's Cathedral, the Tower of London and Buckingham Palace.

We begin our journey home in the afternoon, arriving back in the local area by mid to late evening.

Chelmsford Couple
We had an excellent time. Carols with the Stars was excellent especially in the atmosphere of the Royal Albert Hall and we had good seats.
The coach driver was extremely good, as was the tour manager. The site seeing tour was very interesting with the tour manager very knowledgeable.
Hotel was lovely overlooking the Safari Park. Very good room and facilities and gorgeous breakfast.

Faringdon, Oxon. Couple
One remark would be, although the Hotel was perfection, it seemed strange to stay the opposite side of London from whence the coach had come, ie. Weston-super-Mare.
The Tour was great, Performance at the R.A.H. was thoroughly enjoyable, as well as the tour of London on the second day.
The only down side had been the breakdown of the Coach (not the driver's fault).
As we were accommodated at Epping Forest Hotel, we would have considered shopping at Westfield Centre to be more appropriate.
Due to the breakdown of the coach, we considered the welfare of the customers should have been down to Newmarket and not the Coach Company.

I thoroughly enjoyed this short break. It was run very efficiently. Everything was done for our comfort. Couldn't fault it.

Southampton Couple
The length of time spent on the coach was too long for a trip to London. The hotel did not want to provide a meal and as it was situated in the middle of nowhere this was not very satisfactory. However a nice meal was available at the local pub. Given the amount of people going to the concert it was organised chaos at the Albert Hall and the tour manager was not very clear as to where she was to be found at the end of the concert.

The optional tour of London overran due to the amount of traffic the driver had to contend with which caused a delay in people getting back to the coach at departure time and the tour manager seemed very reluctant to pass on information.

Dear Cathleen, we are sorry that aspects of the tour fell short of your expectations. All feedback has been passed to the relevant Product team as part of their regular review process. We are always looking at ways to make improvements whenever possible. Thank you for bringing these points to our attention.

Worcs Friends
The trip was good value overall. The hotel wasn't up to the standard of the Holiday Inn Brussels airport when attending an Andre Rieu concert in Maastricht.
The seats at the Royal Albert Hall were good and Newmarket had made every effort to accommodate my request for an end seat with legroom.
The only difficulty was that the plan to drop off near Leicester Square and pick up at 3pm were both changed which meant I had to cancel at the last minute an arrangement to meet my daughter who I don't see very often.

This was the first time I had travelled with Newmarket Holidays, it was only an overnight stay in London but very well organised. Seats in the Albert hall were good, Carols with the Stars was brilliant well worth going to see. Hope to go again in 2016.
