Enjoy a glass of mulled wine and a mince pie as you set off around Europe's largest natural harbour. Cruising closely to Brownsea Island, Sandbanks and the beautiful beaches surrounding the island. With live commentary from the captain, you're guaranteed to not miss a thing.

Today we enjoy a day at leisure in Bournemouth. Visit the Christmas Market where you will find your favourite festive foods & local craftsmen answering all your Christmas shopping needs. Experience the magical spectacle of the Christmas Tree Wonderland, with over 100 glittering trees and illuminations lighting your path from the Market all the way down to the seafront.


Day 4

Today we visit Kingston Lacy (NT), a lavish family home built to resemble an Italian Palace. There's plenty to see from grand, beautifully detailed carvings, to intimate family souvenirs and even strange curiosities such as an 'I owe you' note from a king. The house will be dressed for Christmas (theme to be announced)

We depart the hotel after a leisurely breakfast and make our way to the Winchester Christmas Market. The pretty wooden chalets are situated in the Cathedral's historic Close surrounding an open-air real ice rink.
