So, what is there to do this Christmas?

Pantomimes, Christmas Markets & Light Displays

Where do we begin? If you’re heading out with the family, there’s theatres everywhere – showing some of the best pantos in the UK to fulfil this very British tradition. Or perhaps head to one of the marvellous Christmas markets – like Winchester, in the shadow of its magnificent cathedral, or Bournemouth with its incredible display of Christmas trees. Maybe you’d like to take in the lights at Kew Gardens, or take a (wobbly) spin on the ice rink at Hampton Court Palace?

Poole Christmas Market

Christmas Shopping & Theatre Shows

Perhaps you’re looking for time out with your other half? Why not explore London’s bustling South Bank, with its own Christmas market, restaurants and boutique shopping to find a perfect Christmas gift. Or take advantage of our Black Friday theatre ticket prices – with seats to leading West End shows for just £25 each. Maybe you could take a quiet Sunday and enjoy a romantic horse-drawn carriage ride through Richmond Park – topping it off with a walk through the beautiful scenery or warming up with a festive latte in Richmond town before heading home again.

Winter Walks & Museum Visits

But of course, there are things for everyone – like some beautiful winter walks, winter trips for sleigh rides on Bournemouth beach, or if the rain sets in, hours of exploring some of the best museums in England – from London’s quirky Toy Museum to the remarkable D-Day story in Portsmouth, and the Royal Albert Memorial Museum in Exeter.
