Your Christmas package includes breakfasts and dinners PLUS Christmas Day Lunch with all the trimmings, fabulous entertainment nightly plus fun and games throughout Christmas! You can also use the facilities at all of the hotels that make up TLH Leisure Resort.

Enjoy leisurely walks along the promenade and take in the relaxed atmosphere. Make time to walk up the steps of Royal Terrace Gardens, and remember to take in the amazing sea views across the bay at night with the lights reflecting onto the sea. Add an Agatha Christie connection and it all adds up to a grand Christmas time beside the sea.
