New for 2020, this is a weekend with a top class resort (and hotel) to stay in – Bournemouth, plus visits to three Christmas Markets we’ve not previously featured in our holiday programmes. On the way, Friday, it will be Winchester, by the Cathedral. Southampton on Saturday is German style in the city centre, then on Sunday, before we drive home, it’s the very special Victorian Christmas Festival in Portsmouth’s Historic Dockyard.
