Give your Christmas shopping campaign a head start at Lincoln's famous and much-loved Christmas Market. With a visit to Denby Visitor Centre - which features a number of shops set around a courtyard setting - also included, this is the perfect break for picking up some pre-Christmas bargains.
Single rooms are available for a supplement
Leaving the local area in the early morning we'll head to the Denby Visitor Centre. Here you'll find the Denby Factory Shop, which has an extensive range of seconds, and the Denby Home Store with best quality Denby, the Cookery and Gardening Emporiums, a gift shop and a Dartington Crystal Factory Shop.
On the weekend of your visit there will also be a Food and Gift Fayre on site, selling local produce and crafts. After our visit we continue to our overnight hotel, stopping en route for the chance to have dinner.
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 300-plus seasonal stalls, enjoying the organists, carol singers and the heady aroma of mulled wine while browsing for festive decorations, souvenirs and unusual gifts. In the mid to late afternoon we'll begin our journey home, arriving back in the local area by mid evening.
Much of the accommodation is in double-bedded rooms, which will automatically be allocated to married couples, unless you request otherwise.
Your Tour Manager will have allocated seats for you on the main coach in advance, taking into consideration any special requests wherever possible, and will advise you where to sit as you board the coach. This will be your seat for the duration of the tour. (Seats are not allocated on any connecting services to and from the main coach).
Your final travel documents, including the exact time and place of departure, will be sent to you approximately ten days prior to departure, providing all payments have been made. We are unable to give exact departure times before this.
Where meals are not included, your Tour Manager will ensure there are suitable stops made for you to purchase and enjoy lunch and/or dinner each day.
If you have notified us of any special requirements, please check that they have been noted and acknowledged. This is especially important with any dietary needs you may have.
The majority of our tours involve a certain amount of walking, including a short walk from the coach stop to the town, attraction or venue you're visiting. If you are bringing a wheelchair or electric scooter, please let us know as soon as possible so that appropriate arrangements can be made.
