Idyllic checkerboard countryside dotted with stone villages and historic gems dating back to ancient times. This is the county of Lincolnshire, and we’ll spend the Christmas period seeking out all the region has to offer. We’ll take you to the impressive Victorian Kelham Hall & Country Park, wind through the cobbled streets of Lincoln itself, and discover the city’s iconic cathedral, which dates back to 1072.
Titan’s VIP door-to-door travel service collects you from home, for your journey to Lincolnshire and Belton Woods (4T). We aim for you to arrive at the hotel between 4pm and 5pm, and you will be greeted with tea, coffee and cakes, followed by free time to settle in before dinner this evening.
Christmas Eve - Kelham Hall & Country Park
After breakfast at the hotel, we travel to Kelham Hall & Country Park, a beautiful Victorian stately home nestled within 44 acres of stunning parkland. For many years it was a theological college for an Anglican Order of Monks, who created the incredible domed chapel with the second largest concrete dome in England. It was also occupied by military forces during both world wars. We take a tour of the Hall with expert historians, with time to explore the grounds and enjoy an included afternoon tea afterwards. Later, we return to the hotel for mulled wine and mince pies, and then a lantern walk through the grounds, with further refreshments around the bonfire (weather permitting). Carol singers will entertain us while we dine at the hotel this evening. If you wish to attend Midnight Mass, we recommend you pre-book a taxi to avoid disappointment.
Christmas Day - Belton
Enjoy a day full of Christmas festivities, including a visit from Father Christmas during our traditional Christmas Day lunch. Christmas cake is served with afternoon tea, with the opportunity to watch the Queen’s Speech; and the feasting continues into the evening with an informal three course carvery.
Boxing Day - Lincoln
Today, a coach tour of Lincoln shows the city’s major sights, including time for a guided tour of Lincoln Cathedral - a Gothic monument commissioned by William the Conqueror and consecrated in 1092. With civilisations calling this area home since at least 300 BC, there are plenty of stories to hear on our journey. We then take a beautiful, scenic drive through the Lincolnshire Wolds and unique, pretty villages. Back at the hotel, leave your phones in your room if you want to join the Festive Quiz before dinner tonight.
Day 5 Belton
You will be collected at 10am by your Titan vehicle, for the journey home.
