Leaving the local area in the early morning we'll travel to London and our overnight hotel. After check-in we'll head to the Royal Albert Hall for the highlight of our break - 'Christmas Carols with the Stars'.This marvellous show mixes traditional carol singalongs with children's choirs, a brass band, fantastic festive tunes and appearances by well-known celebrities. At the end of the concert, the coach will be waiting to take you back to your hotel.
After breakfast, you'll leave your hotel for some sightseeing or the chance to do some Christmas shopping around Oxford Street, Knightsbridge and High Street Kensington. Alternatively, you may prefer to remain on the coach and enjoy a short sightseeing tour, which will take you past such world-famous attractions as St. Paul's Cathedral, the Tower of London and Buckingham Palace. We begin our journey home in the afternoon, arriving back in the local area by mid to late evening.
Seats for the show
The price of your break includes a seat in the Circle. Tickets at the far sides of the circle are available for a slightly reduced price. The centre of the stage can clearly be seen, but some of the choir will be obscured.
Your show/event ticket(s) will be given to you by your Newmarket Tour Manager on the day.
Coach seating arrangements
Your Tour Manager will have allocated seats for you on the main coach in advance, taking into consideration any special requests wherever possible, and will advise you where to sit as you board the coach. This will be your seat for the duration of the tour. (Seats are not allocated on any connecting services to and from the main coach).
