Shaws: A Grand Day Out
You might find a spot of magic somewhere unexpected this Christmas, with festive traditions up and down the country just waiting to be discovered
Ever wondered howmany Brussels sprouts it would take to power your Christmas tree lights? Probably not! But York’s National Railway Museum has the answer within its seasonal exhibitions! And did you know that the city’s Christmas Market recently won ‘Best Large Speciality Market’ at the Great British Market Awards? There’s only one way to find out why! In Royal Leamington Spa you’ll find thousands of vibrant lanterns lighting up the town accompanied by carol singers, a brass band and stilt walkers for their annual ‘Luminate Leamington Lantern Parade’.
It’s fun for all the family and there’s even a guide to building one on their website if you want to get involved! And of course, you’ve all heard of London’s famous Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park but new for 2019 is a 70m giant wheel, the Winter Wonderland Comedy Club, Paddington™ on Ice and much more! Birmingham Frankfurt Market has also upped its game for 2019 as it celebrates its 20th anniversary! Look out for their new iconic Christmas tree in Victoria Square and a selection of non-alcoholic beers and Gluhwein so non-drinkers can also sample some authentic German “booze”!
Travelling by coach to these fantastic festive events means you’ll save money on parking costs and save time finding a space too! You’ll help to reduce Christmas congestion and youcan even enjoy your favourite winter tipple before being chauffeured home.
The perfect present…
