Spend your Christmas in Lincolnshire, England’s fourth largest and largely unspoilt county. Staying in the cathedral city of Lincoln, you are surrounded by historic landscapes and the city itself can be traced back to the Iron Age and Roman occupation. Included excursions will take you to the wonderful, Victorian Kelham Hall & Country Park, an outstanding Victorian home situated within a spectacular 44 acres of beautiful parkland; and, on Boxing Day, you can also walk off Christmas indulgences with a guided tour of Lincoln Cathedral, a historic monument that dates as far back as 1072.
4 nights in hotel (accommodation as specified or similar)
Titan’s VIP door-to-door travel service collects you from home, for your journey to Lincoln and the Holiday Inn (4T). We aim for you to arrive at the hotel between 4pm and 5pm, and you will be greeted with tea, coffee and a mince pie, followed by free time to settle in before dinner this evening. Afterwards, a quiz and board games will be available.
Day 2 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 Lincoln for the opportunity to explore the Roman city at leisure, with a selection of places to take lunch and independent boutiques for last-minute gifts. Alternatively, festive treats are available at the hotel with more afternoon tea. After dinner at the hotel, an evening of entertainment has been arranged. Those who wish to attend Midnight Mass have the option to do so, with hot beverages served at the hotel on your return.
Day 3 Christmas Day - Lincoln
Enjoy a day full of Christmas festivities, starting with a leisurely buffet breakfast and morning tea. A glass of sparkling wine or Buck’s Fizz will then mark the beginning of our traditional Christmas Day lunch. Christmas cake is served with afternoon tea, with the opportunity to watch the Queen’s Speech in the lounge and the feasting continues into the evening with a festive light buffet dinner, followed by entertainment.
Day 4 Boxing Day - Lincoln
Today, we enjoy a city tour of Lincoln by coach showing the major sights of the town, including a guided tour of Lincoln Cathedral - a Gothic monument commissioned by William the Conqueror and consecrated in 1092. We then take a beautiful, scenic drive through the Lincolnshire Wolds and unique, pretty villages.
Day 5 Lincoln
Following breakfast, you will be collected at 10am by your Titan vehicle, for the journey home.
