Itinerary

Description

Enjoy the festive atmosphere in the historic cities of Bristol and Bath on this new short break. We combine the charm of Bath’s traditional Christmas Market with the National Trust’s unique Lacock Abbey and eccentric Tyntesfield before stepping aboard Isambard Kingdom Brunel’s masterpiece, the pioneering SS Great Britain.

Self Drive

Excursion One – Lacock Abbey & Bath Christmas Market

Lacock Abbey sits at the heart of the picturesque village of Lacock with golden stone cloisters and a Great Hall. Once a medieval nunnery, the abbey was turned into a Tudor family home. The last owner was William Henry Fox Talbot, who invented the first photographic negative. A roaring open fire and Victorian-style Christmas tree in the Great Hall add to the festive atmosphere here.

Afterwards, we have free time to explore Bath’s Christmas Market, for a chance to stock up on original Christmas gifts. Set in the picturesque streets and squares surrounding the impressive Bath Abbey, traditional wooden chalets offer handmade and beautiful gifts from Christmas decorations and toys to festive food and tipples.

Excursion Two – Tyntesfield & SS Great Britain

We start the day with a visit to Tyntesfield, once the much loved home of four generations of the Gibbs family. This eccentric house is a fabulous Victorian Gothic Revival confection of turrets and ornate stonework and every Christmas, the house is transformed by magnificent, decadent Victorian decorations.

We continue on to Bristol where we travel back in time with a visit to SS Great Britain, the great-great grandmother for all modern ships. Created in 1843 by the great innovator and engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the ship has been painstakingly restored and we get under the skin of life at sea as we head beneath the glass sea, walk the SS Great Britain's history in the Dockyard Museum and step onto the ship itself.
