Festive Days Out

Have you longed for those festive days out as much as us?

That gorgeously low winter sun spreading its golden glow by day, with twinkling Christmas fairy lights taking over the display as the sky darkens. Wafts of gingerbread and mulled wine catch the breeze as they rise from intricately-decorated chalet-lined streets. Mugs of hot chocolate and warmed mince pies aplenty to ward off the chill in the air. Ice rinks, funfairs, Christmas markets, light trails, pantomimes, trips to see Santa – the opportunities to enjoy The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year are seemingly endless. It’s a question of how to fit it all in!

See below for our recommendations and all-time favourite Festive Days Out, as well as the latest news and ideas if you fancy something a little bit different this year.

(If the weather isn’t being kind or you’re just not in the mood to wrap up and venture beyond the front door, be sure to check out our suggestions for fun Christmas activities you can enjoy at home.)
