The ancient city of Durham boasts the most festive location imaginable and we visit to enjoy their annual Christmas Festival. Also, as part of the weekend we visit Alnwick and the famous gardens, where as darkness falls we experience the beauty of the 'Sparkle' light installation. Before returning home we visit Newcastle, also hosting their annual festive market.
The 3 star Sunderland Marriott is located on the seafront overlooking the sandy beaches at Seaburn. All bedrooms are en suite with TV, tea making facilities, hairdryer and Wi-Fi. Leisure facilities include an indoor swimming pool & fitness centre. There is a lift.
We travel direct to Durham and allow plenty of free time to explore the Christmas Festival, with a wide range of markets and festive entertainment in and around the World Heritage Site of the Cathedral and the Castle and throughout the City Centre. Late afternoon we transfer to Sunderland for 2 nights half board accommodation at the Marriott Hotel.
We travel to the traditional market town of Alnwick. Explore the town before we include entry to the famous Alnwick Garden to enjoy the Christmas Market. Enjoy seasonal singing and live music played by talented performers from the region in the warmth of the beautifully decorated marquee. As darkness falls you will experience the beauty of the 'Sparkle' light installation.
We travel the short distance to Newcastle where you will have free time to wander around the Quayside Sunday Market, visit the International Christmas Market or enjoy some shopping in the city centre. Early afternoon we depart for home arriving into our local area late afternoon.
