The oldest Marriott in the world, the hotel boasts a combining of rich history and modern amenities, with sophisticated rooms, an excellent restaurant and a heated swimming pool. From here, we’ll indulge in the yuletide delights of Chatsworth House with its enchanting seasonal exhibits, take in breathtaking, rolling landscapes with a ride along the Peak Rail, and enjoy a performance of Peter Pan at Nottingham’s Royal Theatre.
Make your own way to our hotel in North Derbyshire, where you meet an experienced Tour Manager and enjoy a relaxing evening with dinner.
Today, we travel by coach to the city of Nottingham, renowned for its connections to the Robin Hood legend and the majestic hilltop location of Nottingham Castle Museum and Art Gallery. Magic arrives with the Christmas market each year, turning the city into a winter wonderland filled with stalls, rides, an ice rink, and a delicious range of food and drink options. From the heart of the city, Old Market Square, shopping avenues branch out in all directions, making it easy to explore the array of shops. Why not visit one of the delightful cafés for lunch during your free time?
Afterwards, we head to the Theatre Royal for a performance of Peter Pan Pantomime. Join Peter Pan, Tinker Bell and the darling children on a magical journey to Neverland. With stunning sets and amazing special effects, this will be an afternoon of pure panto magic!
After the show, we return by coach to the hotel for dinner this evening.
After breakfast, we set off towards the Peak District for a scenic return journey aboard the Peak Rail. While you admire the rolling landscapes, enjoy a drink with mince pies.
After our return rail journey, we continue to Chatsworth House. A historically rich residence, Chatsworth has been the ancestral home to the Dukes of Devonshire for centuries. Its origins trace back to 1549 when Elizabeth and William Cavendish acquired the land for a sum of £600. This was Elizabeth's home, the Countess of Shrewsbury, better known as Bess of Hardwick. Over her eventful life, she married four times, and in the process, rose to a position of great power and wealth. With her marriage to William Cavendish, Treasurer of the King’s Chamber, they established Chatsworth as their home and had eight children. A later marriage to George Talbot, 6th Earl of Shrewsbury, saw Bess become Countess of Shrewsbury. Over the following generations, the house was transformed into what we see today.
On arrival, take your time to delve into its magnificent architecture and history before heading to the 105-acre garden to experience the light trail. Every festive season, Chatsworth House never fails to impress with its wonderful, themed Christmas display. Let yourself be mesmerised as you walk through beautifully decorated rooms, each one a sight to behold – you truly feel the magic of Christmas here at Chatsworth!
We return to our hotel for dinner this evening.
