Castle Howard at Christmas (O)    
Castle Howard at Christmas (O)
2015 Itinerary

“Wallow in the warm glow of Castle Howard’s dramatic 18th-Century palatial rooms lit by candlelight and roaring fires and adorned with traditional decorations and giant Christmas Trees…
This is how Christmas should be!”

 
   
    


   

Day 1 Sunday: Meet our coach this morning on route to the elegant town of Harrogate in Yorkshire.
With a couple of stops along the way we arrive at hotel late afternoon.

We stay overnight with dinner and full breakfast at the Cairn or Cedar Court hotels. Both great-quality 3 star hotels.

Day 2 Monday: Rise to a hearty breakfast (or something lighter – there’s lots of choice) then we board the coach and set out to Castle Howard which is about an hour away and we should arrive soon after opening.  Home to the Howard family for over 300 years, Castle Howard is one of England's grandest Baroque mansions.  It’s a joy to visit any time of year with its dramatic interiors containing world-famous collections, and listen to the friendly guides as they share their detailed knowledge and relate the many and varied stories of previous generations.  It’s even more splendid when it’s decked out for Christmas!  With rooms lit by roaring fires and candlelight, this is a magical time to explore this fine historic house.  See the dramatic Castle-like rooms transformed with giant Christmas trees, traditional decorations and brilliant displays chosen by the Howard family. There’s usually live music and Carols too.  If you’re peckish for lunch, you’ll find lovely home-cooked festive food and lots more in the restaurant and do see the gift shop - for a fantastic range of decorations you can purchase. 
All good things must come to and end as they say, and we normally aim to leave about half past two - so we can get you home without it being too late.

Price includes: hotel with dinner and full breakfast and admission to Castle Howard. Single Supp £20.
