Day One

Leaving your pick-up point 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 your break: Classic Carols at the Royal Albert Hall with Alan Titchmarsh.

The concert programme has yet to be finalised, but last year it included classics such as 'Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas', 'Masters in this Hall' and 'Sussex Carol', while the evening's Carols For All song-sheet featured such festive favourites as 'O Little Town Of Bethlehem', 'Good King Wenceslas', 'Once In Royal David's City' and 'God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen'.

After a delightful evening, the coach will be waiting to return you to your hotel.

Day Two

After breakfast, this morning, we'll head to Windsor. Spend your time in this pretty, riverside town doing some Christmas shopping or perhaps join our optional excursion and visit Windsor Castle. See the magnificent State Apartments as the Castle recreates a Regency Christmas complete with beautifully decorated trees and a themed display showing how the Prince Regent (the future George IV) celebrated Christmas the early 19th Century.

We'll leave Windsor in the mid-afternoon, and should arrive back at your pick-up point in the mid-to-late evening.
