This is a sample Turkey and Tinsel itinerary and some programmes will vary and in some instances, meals will be buffet style.


Full Day: Winchester
Winchester has been the Royal capital of Saxon Wessex, and England, for many centuries. The Winchester Christmas Market will have started and you can discover all the stalls selling trinkets, get great food, and get into the Christmas spirit. There is also plenty of time to explore with a visit to the medieval Great Hall highly recommended.

Half Day: Salisbury
Famous for its magnificent Gothic Cathedral and tallest spire in England, the grid-like streets, with their black and white half-timbered houses, are a joy to explore. During this holiday the Salisbury Christmas Market will be on, with its twinkling lights, mulled wine, a festive atmosphere and fabulous gifts.

Half Day: Poole 
This lovely town combines as a ferry port and departure point for the National Trust’s Brownsea Island, with its role as an affluent residential town and holiday centre. The quay is a delight to explore and a visit to the Poole Maritime Museum is well worthwhile.
