Itinerary

  • DAY 1 Leicester
  • ​Make your own way to Leicester, which is located in the heart of the East Midlands. After checking into your hotel, why not head to the bar, where you'll get to know your Tour Manager and your fellow travellers over a welcome drink. Dinner is then served in the restaurant.
  • DAY 2 NEW YEAR’S EVE Leicester
  • ​Enjoy a leisurely breakfast before we take the short drive into Leicester for a walking tour. The city's medieval past was thrust into the international spotlight when a battle-scarred skeleton found beneath a city centre car park was confirmed to be that of King Richard III. The last Plantagenet king of England died on the battlefield at nearby Bosworth. We'll see the cathedral, where his remains are interred, and admire the 14th century Guildhall, a timber-framed building which sits in its shadow. Built as a meeting place for the Guild of Corpus Christi in about 1390, the Great Hall is the oldest part of the building. Formerly used as a courtroom and a venue for theatrical shows, it is believed that William Shakespeare performed here.
    You can make your own discoveries with some free time in the city. Perhaps indulge in a spot of shopping, or you could take a short stroll to the site of the Jewry Wall Museum, where you can see the remains of a large Roman bath house.
    We'll return to the hotel in plenty of time to prepare for tonight's celebrations, a five-course gala dinner with dancing to live music and a glass of bubbly at midnight to see in the New Year​.
  • DAY 3 NEW YEAR’S DAY Leicester
  • ​After breakfast this morning you can check out of your hotel and make your way home. ​
