Christmas in County Durham

Christmas in County Durham
Join us on our Christmas tour to County Durham, one of the most picturesque areas of countryside in the whole of England including nearby majestic Durham.

Your Itineary

Wednesday 23rd: We make our way to our hotel in Darlington where you can enjoy tea/coffee, mulled wine and mince pies. Following dinner there will be a Festive quiz.

Thursday 24th (Christmas Eve): After breakfast we take the short journey to Durham, located on the picturesque River Wear with its iconic Cathedral and Castle, with time to explore at leisure. The magnificent Norman Cathedral is undoubtedly the highlight of the attractions and around the delightfully compact city centre there are museums, galleries and medieval buildings, plus the quaint cobbled streets and ancient bridges of the old town. This evening dinner will be followed by live entertainment. Anyone wishing to attend Midnight Mass, there are churches of all dominations within walking distance.

Friday 25th (Christmas Day): A day to relax. Traditional table-served Christmas lunch will be served followed by tea/coffee. You may want to take a stroll after lunch before the Queen’s speech when tea & coffee and Christmas cake will be served. This evening enjoy a Christmas buffet dinner and then a game of Festive bingo.

Saturday 26th (Boxing Day): We take a circular drive heading north to Bishops Auckland known as the gateway to Weardale, a bustling market town in the Vale of Durham with commanding views of the surrounding countryside and famed as where Stan Laurel spent much of his early life. We continue to Barnard Castle where you can take a walk through over a thousand years of English history, in one rather gorgeous market town. We return to our hotel this afternoon where a mini afternoon tea will be served. Evening dinner this evening will be followed by live entertainment.

Sunday 27th: We leave the Kings Hotel after breakfast and return home.
