Visit St Nicholas Festival in York, Day free in Harrogate, Afternoon Tea, German Market in Leeds.
The Cairn Hotel was built during Harrogate's period as a Spa Town when people came from far and wide to take the waters. Carefully modernised, grand original features still welcome you to this charming Victorian hotel. Located only a short 5 minute walk from the centre of town.
With a morning departure, we will arrive at The Cairn Hotel for our 4 night stay and enjoy a pre-dinner mulled wine drinks reception and live entertainment will follow into the evening.
After a hearty Yorkshire breakfast, we will visit St Nicholas Festival in York. The annual Christmas fayre is set in the historic square, has continued since medieval times. The city comes alive with Victorian costumed traders, carol singers and delicious smells of the roasted chestnuts and hot chocolate laced with brandy. After our evening meal there will be live entertainment.
Day of leisure to enjoy Harrogate. However, make sure you are back in the hotel in the afternoon, as you will be spoilt with a sumptuous 'festive-themed' Mini Afternoon Tea and a glass of Festive Fizz. Dinner in the evening will again be followed by live entertainment.
After a delicious full English breakfast, we will make our way to the German Market, Christkindlmarket, in Leeds.
