Day 1 Southampton

Make your own way to Southampton today and check into your hotel. Set within 12 acres of gardens, why not enjoy a stroll before dinner is served this evening.

Day 2 Christmas Eve Beaulieu House

​Today you'll journey into the heart of the beautiful New Forest to visit Beaulieu and its famous National Motor Museum. The former gatehouse of Beaulieu Abbey, Palace House, set in glorious grounds, has been owned by the Montagu family since 1538. You can still see the monastic origins of the building while exploring the treasures inside the house. The motor museum houses a wonderful collection of vehicles, from vintage models to legendary world record-breakers such as Bluebird and the Golden Arrow, and fascinating motoring memorabilia.
Enjoy time at leisure back at the hotel before dinner this evening.

Day 3 Christmas Day Southampton

​It's Christmas Day, and we've left the morning free for you to spend as you wish. A walk around the hotel's grounds will help you to work up an appetite for your festive lunch with all the trimmings.
After a relaxing afternoon, a light buffet dinner will be served this evening.

Day 4 Boxing Day Mid Hants Railway

Spend today discovering the Mid Hants Railway as you travel back in time and experience the Watercress Line as it would have been during the Second World War. During this event with a 'Christmas Leave' theme, you'll join civilian and military re-enactors as you ride on steam trains, hopping on and off at four different stations to explore. Entertainment will be provided in the form of live music from the 1940s, an ARP display and a number of other treats with a festive theme.
Enjoy dinner back at the hotel this evening.
