Coach Itinerary

Day 1

After joining the coach, we make our way to our hotel and check in.

Day 2 – Rochester & Chatham

We head first to Rochester. Boasting ancient buildings including an imposing castle and enthralling cathedral, the town was also a favourite of Charles Dickens who based many of his novels in the area. We then continue to Chatham, its Historic Dockyard has a rich maritime history stretching back more than 400 years. Highlights include the award-winning Command of the Oceans interactive gallery and the HMS Cavalier. Later we enjoy a traditional ‘Christmas’ dinner with all the trimmings back at the hotel.

Day 3 – Bruges Christmas Market

This morning we make our way across the Channel to the beautiful medieval city of Bruges in Belgium, famous for its picturesque canals and absolutely magical at this time of year. Held in the city’s main market square, the Christmas Market is full of stalls selling a tempting array of hand-made Christmas decorations and gifts as well as tasty local produce and warming mulled wine. Enjoy dinner in Bruges or on the return ferry (not included) as we head back to Folkestone.

Day 4 – Canterbury

Today we visit the spellbinding city of Canterbury, home to the oldest cathedral in England, dating back to Norman times. There is plenty to explore within the city’s medieval walls, from quaint cobbled lanes and timber-framed buildings to a bustling shopping centre.

Day 5

After breakfast, we check out of our hotel and head for home.
