Guided Tours Christmas Day & Boxing Day 2016

Plus 4 Day Tours Edinburgh, Paris & Amsterdam Over The Christmas/New Year Holiday


Christmas Lunch

London at Christmas Time

If you are in London on Christmas Day then what to do is a big issue.

No attractions will be open, no public transport will be running and the shops will be closed. Only a few restaurants will be open, most of these will be of the “ethnic” variety although this aspect improves very slightly each year.


The day after Christmas Day (December 26th) is another national holiday called Boxing day. On Boxing Day, most of the major attractions like the museums and the Tower of London are also closed. (Many of these will also be closed 24th December).


This shut down is not unique to London, it is a very similar story all over the United Kingdom, so out of town attractions like Stonehenge and Windsor Castle are also closed.

Tours Over The Christmas & New Year Holiday

Day Tours On Christmas Day (Dec 25th) & Boxing Day (Dec 26th)

Outside the dates December 24th to December 26th the winter tour programme operates as normal, some tours will have extra dates at this time.

On December 25th and 26th the attractions the day tours visit are closed but this doesn't stop tours operating!


The headline destinations the tours visit on these Christmas dates correspond to the most popular tours throughout the year. Of course because nothing will be open the tour itinerary will be adapted. Major attractions will be drive bys or short photo stops, or if a major attraction is in a town/city then there is normally a rewarding walking tour to be had around the town/city.

The centrepiece of most day tours on Christmas Day is a full traditional English Christmas Dinner.

Given there is no public transport in London on Christmas Day the hotel pick-up service covering all of Central London's major hotel districts comes into its own.


4 Day Breaks To Scotland, Paris & Amsterdam Over The Christmas/New Year

Very popular every year are special 4 day breaks where you can celebrate Christmas in Paris or Amsterdam or New Year Hogmanay in Edinburgh.

All tours include a flexible programme of sightseeing.
