Day 1

We depart our local pick up points early morning and head north for our weekend of bright lights and festive fun.  We arrive in Leeds mid-late morning where the Christkindelmarkt is in full swing.  This annual event hosts over 40 traditionally decorated chalets for us to browse, all selling festive treats, gifts, food and drink.  After lunch, we continue to Durham where we step into the light as the city celebrates the 10th anniversary of its spectacular lumiere light festival.  Enjoy free time in this beautiful city and as night falls be dazzled and amazed by the eye catching illuminations that create a fully immersive experience.  We arrive at our overnight hotel late evening.

Day 2

After breakfast we depart our hotel and make our way to Castle Howard where “A Christmas Masquerade” transforms each room for the festive season (entrance included).  Experience the magnificent and sumptuous decorations as you journey through the House’s grand state rooms.  Open fires, candle light and live music evoke all that we love about this special time of year with the iconic 25 foot Christmas tree adorned with over 3000 baubles providing a breath-taking highlight in the Great Hall.  After a magically festive time we continue our journey South, arriving back at our pick up points late evening.
