5 Christmas and New Year tours and trips in England 2022

Bespoke tours by Rosehill take you wherever you want to go, set to your own itinerary or with a little help from our recommendations. So, to help you plan here is a little inspiration in the form of some our very favourite places to see and things to experience, to ensure you soak up the best of the English Christmas festive spirit.

Windsor Castle

Transformed for the festive period, Queen Elizabeth II’s final resting place, alongside many of England’s royalty and poets has an incredible 20-foot high Christmas tree as the focal point in St George’s Hall. For Christmas 2022, visitor tickets include a very special display of ‘The Princesses’ Pantomimes’, where you can see the play costumes Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret wore during the war years.

With choirs singing, and you sipping traditional English tea and perusing the luxury gift shop under the light display, can you get more Chistmassy than that?


From the world-renowned Christmas lights display of Piccadilly and Oxford Street, to the madness of toy shopping in Hamleys or the Lego Store, London has only the best to offer. Take an open-top bus tour to take in all the sights, or book a private, chauffeur driven tour for the same experience in the comfort and luxury of one of our executive vehicles.

Visit Harvey Nicholls, Harrods, Selfridges and all the luxury brands that Sloane Street has to offer, and your private tour guide will be on hand to transport you to your next destination, and on to your accommodation, with a helping hand for all your purchaes.

Festive lunch or afternoon tea aboard the Belmond British Pullman

An experience like no other, the ‘sister train’ to The Orient Express offers 1920’s style luxury Christmas lunch aboard her beautiful carriages.

Travel by steam and take in the glorious wintry countryside on a round trip from London, Victoria whilst enjoying champagne, a five-course festive lunch and of course more wine and petit fours.

We can assist you in adding this once-in-a-lifetime experience to your English Christmas tour, simply let us know at the time of your enquiry.

Le Manoir Aux Quat’Saisons

From the Belmond steam train to an exclusive Belmond hotel which has maintained it’s 2-Michelin stars for 38 years since first opening.

Join Raymond Blanc’s team for the six-course festive lunch throughout December, or attend Christmas wreath making, tablescaping, carol concerts or an exceptional New Year’s Eve gala dinner and dance, during your stay.

If you would like to book rooms at Le Manoir, please ask us to assist.

Bath Christmas Market

A fine example of a traditional Christmas market, surrounded by outstanding architecture and history, you will find locally produced gifts, cheeses, meats and festive tipples beneath the decorated eves of the wooden cabins.

Whilst you’re in Bath, ask us to take you to the Christmas lights trail or to drop you off at the Theatre Royal for a traditional English panto.

There are so many wonderful places to visit in England, and Christmas only enhances the magic in our history and spirit. We haven’t even mentioned Blenheim Palace’s lights trail and Christmas market, Cumbria’s many traditional Christmas markets, the Santa Express in North Yorkshire or the unforgettable Christmas Carols at the Royal Albert Hall in London.

Do take some time to explore all the wonderful things to see and do and ask us to plan your itinerary, accommodation and luxury transportation along the way.
