Turkey & Tinsel in Torquay

23rd - 27th November 2020

Our second 5 day Turkey & Tinsel tour takes us to Torquay where we will ar-rive with time to enjoy a pre-dinner glass of sherry followed by dinner & dancing.

Tuesday (alias Christmas Eve) First we visit Buckfastleigh Abbey, a living mo-nastic community. The Abbey is famous for its tonic wine, made from French mistelle fortified wine and Devonian herbs. The whole site was rebuilt by French Benedictines, exiled from France during the Third Republic. Our next stop is Tot-nes, an historic market town that offers an excellent range of independent retailers sitting on the banks of the River Dart. We will also pay a visit to the beautiful town of Dartmouth at the mouth of the river and one of South Devon’s most enchanting towns, with its scenic river location and charming historic streets. We return to the hotel in plenty of time for a Gala Dinner followed by dancing and entertainment.

Wednesday (alias Christmas Day) Enjoy a free day in Torquay, but before you go out try your skill and guess the weight of the Christmas cake. Make sure you return to the hotel in time for the Christmas Day Traditional Grand Festive Lunch and an afternoon Tea and minced pies with games. In the evening there will be dinner fol-lowed by a Christmas Party.

Thursday (alias Boxing Day) We will pay a visit to the House of Marbles and Newton Abbot before we return to the hotel for a pre-lunch glass of punch followed by the Grand Boxing Day Lunch. You will again have some free time in the after-noon before our dinner which is followed by a Farewell Fancy Dress Party (costume optional) with prize giving, dancing and entertainment.
