£299.00 pp

Internationally renowned for being one of Europe’s most fashionable resorts, Bournemouth attracts millions of visitors each year offering seven miles of golden sand, first class attractions, beautiful award winning gardens as well as a variety of exciting shops, bars and cafes. Christmas is a lovely time to visit this bustling resort and enjoy some bracing festive sea air!

Situated on a glorious stretch of the Dorset coastline there are wonderfully clean beaches, lovingly manicured parks and gardens, entertainment galore and super shopping. The town’s reputation for elegance led Thomas Hardy to describe it in ‘Tess of the d’Urbevilles’ as a ‘Mediterranean lounging-place on the English Channel’ with its cliffs interrupted by beautiful chines and scenery rich in pinewood. Set in over 2000 acres of public park it is not difficult to see why visitors return year after year…

As this is a 'Destination' holiday, its exceptional price means that whilst you know where you are going and what's included, we can't tell you which coach seat or hotel until just before you go. It's a great way to save money as long as you're flexible with the hotel and you're not fussy where you sit on the coach.

Hotel: We'll let you know before you go!

You will be staying in a good hotel in the local area. All the bedrooms will have private facilities, colour TV and tea and coffee making facilities, and the hotel will have a good bar and restaurant and there will great festive food and entertainment on offer.

Salisbury (via the New Forest)

‘The city in the countryside’ is surrounded by a landscape so quintessentially English it’s almost too good to be true.

If you pause on the edge of the water-meadows to take in the awesome sight of the Cathedral rising up from these lush green fields, it’s easy to understand why Salisbury was named as one of the world's Top 10 Cities to visit by Lonely Planet.

Within the Chapter House ast Salisbury Cathedral you’ll find the best preserved of the four original Magna Carta manuscripts dating from 1215AD, celebrated within an exhibition at the Cathedral's Chapter House. Over 750 years of history, including Britain's tallest spire and Europe's oldest working clock, this is a must-see on your visit today.

Explore this great city at your leisure.
