5 Family Friendly Places to visit this Christmas
There are so many places to spend time with loved ones this Christmas. Many spend quality time with family and get away from the normal routine for a while. From luxury breaks and experiences to more budget friendly options; surely there is something here for you:
The Lygon Arms (Cotswold)
A festive break here affords you with a relaxing base just moments from Broadway's Christmas market. With rave reviews and mulled wine; this beautiful hotel and the staff are lovely and very professional. Traditional and classical ‘English charm’ alongside rustic decor and maybe some uneven floors and old drawers may rise eyebrows but are thoroughly enjoyed. However; it’s the Christmas Eve entertainment in the form of carol singers and gifts for all during this season that many find charming.
Pump Street in Shoreditch * 15th Dec - Fri 23 Dec 2022
Award-winning bakers and chocolate makers Pump Street Chocolate will host a festive candy shop in Shoreditch this December. Pump Street’s range of chocolate will be supplemented by a new illustrated run, with designs from Jesse Bevan Brown adorning bars flavoured with Eccles cake; panettone; or gingerbread. They are all about running ethically and traceability and pay the farmers well above fair trade prices to ensure that they can pay their teams fairly and maintain the land and their infrastructure. They will host at Pump Street, Calvert Avenue, Shoreditch from: Thursday 15 – Friday 23 December 2022
Watergate Hotel (Newquay) * 21st Dec - 05 Jan 23
This luxury family hotel just outside Newquay has a huge beach and awesome waves, with lifeguards managing the safety. There are 4 varied quality restaurants. From 21 December until New Year, the hotel runs its ’12 Days of Christmas’ celebrations with the whole hotel decked out in Christmas decorations. Everything is so well planned and the hard work is done for you.
London Christmas Beer Festival * 16th/17th Dec 2022
This two-day event will play host to more than 50 of the UK’s best independent craft breweries, serving up hundreds of craft beers with independent breweries heading to Tobacco Dock, including Brick, Signature Brew and Tiny Rebel. A limited edition special Christmas beers, including collabrations and hard-to-find tipples will be available from over 50 brands alongside Christmas dinner specials such as Dom's Subs Christmas sandwich and a festive special from Tacos Padre.
Chessington Christmas Sleepover * 25 Nov - 23 Dec 2022
Chessington World of Adventures is another theme park hosting a Santa Sleepover. However, unlike LEGOLAND you don't get access to the whole park, but you do get to explore the Winter's Tail event at Chessington and get free access to the zoo, as well as the SEA LIFE Centre. In addition; adventurers visiting up to 24th December will be guaranteed to meet Father Christmas alongside his jolly elves and grotto.
