Day One

Leaving the local area, in the morning we'll head to our hotel. Once here you'll have time to freshen up and relax before dinner is served.

Day Two

This morning we head to the beautiful hill-top city of Lincoln. Each year, the city and its German twin, Neustadt, get together in the streets surrounding the magnificent cathedral and castle for a spectacular Christmas market.

Wander the 250-plus seasonal stalls, enjoying the organists, carol singers and the heady aroma of mulled wine while browsing for festive decorations, souvenirs and unusual gifts. You may also like to visit recently restored Lincoln Castle (entry fee payable locally) or imposing Lincoln Cathedral - home to one of the four remaining copies of Magna Carta.

Day Three

Today we'll head home, stopping on the way at the Meadowhall Shopping Centre for another chance to pick up some perfect presents. There will be time to have lunch (payable locally) befor we continue our journey home, arriving back at your original pick-up point by the mid evening.

Wirral Family
Very disappointed not to eat in the hotel. Should have been advised we could have ordered bar meals as other guests appeared to be doing. Thoroughly enjoyed the trip in all other respects.

Pontefract Friends
Very busy market with a steep hill to climb. Medieval market in castle. A lot of unique gifts on market stalls. Plenty of pubs and cafes to rest and refuel. Well worth a visit, would return.

The lincoln markets was brilliant, and the trip to Denby, just a little long in Denby, not much to see once you've been through the shops.
