Christmas in York - Sun 23rd Dec 2018
- Duration: 5 Days
- Product code: PNX1TF
Join us at this special time of the year for a lovely Christmas in York.
Few cities rival the historic splendour of York with Christmas Time a particular highlight on the calendar. Steeped in history spanning 2000 years, York is a compact walled riverside city home to world-class attractions. We stay within the medieval city walls allowing you time to explore the historic centre, with its lovely waterfront and cobbled streets. The city’s medieval centre adds an authenticity to the Christmas celebrations so come along and soak up the atmosphere. York is foody heaven, and a great place to go out and relax in one of the coffee shops or traditional taverns.
We are delighted to have secured accommodation at our usual hotel – The Queens. Offering very good quality, comfortable accommodation with a friendly team of staff, it has a superb location on the River Ouse – just over the bridge from the centre. The hotel offers a slightly more laid back Christmas Break including some live entertainment in the evenings but there is plenty more on offer on the doorstep if you wish to explore.
After being collected from your local pick up point (approx 7.30/8.00am) we have comfort stops on route before arriving at the hotel late afternoon. Settle in to the hotel with a welcome drink before your 3 course evening meal followed by some live entertainment.
DAYS 2 to 4
During your Christmas Break in York most of your time will be free for you to enjoy this remarkable city and to relax in the comfort of the hotel. Don’t miss The Shambles, perhaps the most picturesque street in England complete with overhanging timber-framed houses and traditional shopfronts. York Minster, one of the largest cathedrals in Northern Europe is also on the must do list. On every evening of our stay there will be entertainment which may be a live singer or musician, a festive quiz or game of Bingo. Full details will be available closer to departure. The food is excellent at the hotel. Look forward to a superb Christmas Day Lunch with all the trimmings and 3 course evening dinners plus Full English Breakfasts (if you can manage it all!!)
Your driver will also arrange for an excursion out of the city during your stay – included.
After breakfast we leave York and head home. Comfort stops taken on route before returning to the local area around 4.00/5.00pm.
