A packed itinerary including the Dickensian festival, a day trip to the continent and a trip to historic city of Canterbury. With breakfast, dinner and drinks offers included at your hotel.
On this festive break you will be treated to the entertaining Dickensian Festival in Rochester. Against the enchanting backdrop of Rochester's castle and cathedral, this delightful city offers street performers, candlelit parades, carol concerts and even a guaranteed snow fall! The traditional festival has been held annually since 1988, positioned accordingly along the river Medway, a special place to the celebrated author Charles Dickens. During the festival you will see many people dressed as the familiar fabled characters from Dickens’ famous stories.
On day three, we will journey across the Channel to Bruges, where you can explore the cobbled streets, canals and Christmas markets of one of Europe's prettiest cities. On the return journey we stop at the UNESCO World Heritage city of Canterbury for time at your leisure, where you can visit the Christmas markets and a fascinating World Heritage Site, consisting of a Cathedral, Abbey and ancient ruins.
You will stay three nights at the Britannia Burstin Hotel in Folkestone. This 3-star hotel has well-furnished en-suite bedrooms as well as a comfortable bar, restaurant, leisure club and heated indoor pool (payable locally).
