We will be welcomed at the hotel with a glass of sherry, followed by dinner and an evening of Festive Entertainment.

Saturday (alias Christmas Day). This morning we travel to nearby Chichester, which although does not host a large Christmas market is a fabulous City to visit at any time of year. We return to the hotel in time to enjoy a traditional Christmas lunch, afternoon tea & cakes and evening entertainment.

After a leisurely brunch we travel to Southampton, where over 40 independent stallholders offer a range of hand-made, authentic gifts including wooden toys, baskets, soaps, lamps, jewellery as well as Christmas decorations.
