Get into the Christmas spirit with Newmarket Holidays


For tour operator Newmarket Holidays the Christmas season begins in mid-November with the first of a series of departures to a vast array of Christmas markets held throughout the UK.

As autumn leaves begin to fall and nights draw in, we all begin to look forward to the excitement of the coming Christmas season. In recent years in particular, the pre-Christmas period has been marked by the increasingly popular Christmas Market holiday. Newmarket Holidays’ range of great-value coach trips and weekend breaks offers chances to visit over two dozen Christmas markets and other festive events, each giving opportunities to ‘get in the Yuletide mood’. Returning for the its nineteenth year, the popular three-day break to the Dickens Christmas Festival in Grassington, North Yorkshire, enchants visitors with an authentic Victorian Christmas market where the scents of roasted chestnuts, freshly baked gingerbread and mulled wine hang over the heavily laden stalls.

More traditional revelries, accompanied by crafts-folk selling Christmas trinkets and unusual gifts, take place in historic York, where the St Nicolas Fayre attracts thousands of visitors, in Lincoln, where one of Europe’s biggest - and the UK’s oldest - Christmas markets is held in the shadow of the magnificent cathedral, and in historic, Roman Bath, all of which Newmarket visits on its programme of two-day coach trips.

Exquisite Ludlow and elegant Warwick both hold Christmas markets behind the walls of their imposing castles, and Newmarket offers tremendous value breaks to both of these beautiful cities. Britain’s best-loved stately homes offer another grand location for these festive breaks. You can join the revelries at magnificent Chatsworth, ancestral home of the Dukes of Devonshire, stunning Castle Howard – of ‘Brideshead Revisited’ fame – and Winston Churchill’s breathtaking birthplace Blenheim Palace. Dressed in their festive finery, these great houses even host delightful mini markets of their own.

All of Newmarket’s Escorted tours and Christmas market trips include return coach travel from a choice of local pick-up points, accommodation in comfortable hotels, visits to the featured locations and the services of a friendly, professional Newmarket tour manager who will point customers in the right directions and add to the relaxed enjoyment of the break. Prices start at just £79.00 for a two-day break to Lincoln or Bath Christmas market holiday, including bed and breakfast accommodation, and rise to £149.00 for a three-day trip to the Eden Project that also includes visits to Plymouth and to Bath Christmas market.
