Holiday Summary

  • Travel Type: Coach

Wells may be England's smallest City, but each year it holds what is said to be the World's biggest Illuminated Carnival, and that's where we are heading. Huge floats slowly make their way through the medieval streets intertwined with street performers and highly inventive costumes, the blaze of lights, music and dancing create a unique and exciting atmosphere. We also enjoy free time in Bristol (The Christmas Market may be on) and an unforgettable visit to Longleat with its breath taking Chinese Lanterns, take a ride on the Santa Express, skate on real ice, see the House brought to life, drive through the Winter Safari or singing along to the 50ft singing Christmas Tree
