Christmas with the Stars at the Albert Hall

A star-studded celebration

Take your seat for 'Christmas with the Stars' at the Royal Albert Hall. Sponsored by the 'TV Times' in aid of Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research, it's a lively mix of celebrity, festivity and wonderful music conducted by Frank Renton. And with time to shop in London, this is a pre-Christmas break you won't want to miss.

Tour Highlights And Inclusions

  • One night's continental breakfast accommodation in a good hotel in the Greater London/Home Counties area
  • A Circle Seat at the Royal Albert Hall for 'Christmas with the Stars' (upgrades available for a supplement and restricted views available at a discount)
  • A shopping and sightseeing visit to Central London
  • A short panoramic sightseeing tour of London
  • Coach travel throughout
  • The services of a friendly Tour Manager

Single rooms are available for a supplement


Day One

Leaving the local area in the early morning we'll travel to the London area and our overnight hotel. After check-in we'll head to the Royal Albert Hall for the highlight of our break - 'Christmas 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. The guest list is never revealed until the last minute but last year saw such stars as Strictly winner Ore Oduba, Call the Midwife's Helen George and TV personality Gaby Roslin. 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.

Your show/event ticket(s) will be given to you by your Newmarket Tour Manager on the day.

Coach seating arrangements

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.)

Joining your holiday

Your final travel documents, including the exact time and place of departure, will be sent to you approximately 10 days prior to departure, providing all payments have been made. We are unable to give exact departure times before this.

Meal arrangements

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.

Special requirements

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.

Disabled access

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, please let us know at the time of booking so that appropriate arrangements can be made.

Triple rooms

The majority of these consist of a double bed and an extra bed that is often only suitable for children. If this is a concern, you may wish to consider booking more than one room for your group.

The organisation was terrible we was on the. Coach for over. 5 hours. Without a break. The first driver. Couldn’t us out of Preston we. Had to direct him we arrived at two. Bus. Stations an hour half late. I felt really. Sorry for these people it’s no joke. Waiting. All that. Time. In. My opinion the best. Way. To. Solve this problem is make everyone be picked up. At motorway service stations sending coaches into town. At. That. Time. Of the Day. Is crazy. I am. A Farmer and if I ran my business like you run. Yours I wouldn’t last long when. We eventually got. To. London. Everything was fine. The hotel was good the show was. Good.

An excellent experience. Our tour guide was oone of the best I have met. Could have done with less traffic in London, it spoilt our psnoramic tour.

Plymouth Friends
I would like to say I enjoyed the trip to the Royal Albert Hall and all that went with it .
But would like to say your marketing skills left me feeling a little disgruntled. The trip turned out to be a charity event, of which I probably would have gone even if I did know at the time, but maybe others would not.

Manchester Couple
Had a good time. Hotel was comfortable and service good.
Everyone was very friendly. The venue and show were great.There were delays being picked up and a mix upon our homeward Journey meant we didn't stop for a meal.

Tewkesbury, gloucestershire Family
Feeder coach good and friendly driver.
Main coach was nice although had a problem with the door. Driver got this fixed next day.
Driver and tour guide were excellent, and kept us informed.
The hotel Ibis was nice, also nice food. Only 2 lifts and many guests so took ages to get a lift. because of ailments I was unable to use stairs. We and other people were locked out of room that took a while to sort (because we couldn’t get to reception because of lifts). This made us a bit late to coach to depart. New hotel I think, will improve, I would use it myself. Overall a good trip. I would use Newmarket Hols again and recommend them.u
