Great Days Offers English Christmas Holiday Packages
Paull Tickner of Great Days introduced a couple of Christmas holiday packages for England. The Dickensian Christmas (Dec. 2 to 8) invites clients to come in Victorian costume to the annual Dickens Christmas Festival in the cathedral city of Rochester, Kent, and spend time rubbing shoulders with Scrooge, Mr. Pickwick, Miss Havisham and other well-known characters, street entertainers, re-enactors and quite a few interesting oddballs.
There’s also a German style Christmas Market in the spectacular setting of the city’s 11th century castle. The festive nature is enhanced with visits to Leeds Castle and Hever Castle, which look magical at this time of the year. The net U.K. land price for a group of 20 is £899 per person double occupancy and includes six nights bed and breakfast, one dinner in hotel (outside London), five days coach hire, five days guide/tour manager, return airport transfers, and entrances to Leeds Castle, Canterbury Cathedral and Hever Castle.
The company is also offering a Stately Homes, Cathedrals and Christmas Markets package (Dec. 3 to 10) that includes Blenheim Palace and Waddesdon and six different Christmas Markets in Oxford, Bath, Winchester and Chichester and in the picturesque market towns of Cirencester and Tetbury. The net U.K. land price for a group of 20 is £1,169 per person and includes seven nights bed and breakfast, one dinner in a Burford hotel, five days coach hire, six days guide/tour manager, return airport transfers, and entrances to Blenheim Palace, Waddesdon Manor, Avebury Stone Circle, Stonehenge and Salisbury Cathedral.
