Tentative Schedule

The Program Includes

  • Bed and breakfast accommodations. Stay in a Georgian-period townhouse and start every day with a full English breakfast.
  • A tour of Westminster Abbey. Tour the church where kings and queens have been crowned since 1066. As the final resting place of kings, queens, statesmen, soldiers, poets, priests, heroes, and villains, the Abbey is a history pageant.

  • A guided Christmas adventure in Oxford. Follow a celebrated local guide on a stroll through this beautiful ancient city, then shop the Christmas markets surrounded by buildings from every architectural period since the late Saxon period. Home to the oldest university in the English-speaking world, Oxford presents an amazing "Christmas Village" feel in the "City of Dreaming Spires."
  • A Christmas Concert in Central London (based on availability).
