Newmarket Holidays

A number of holiday options offered by Newmarket Holidays offer customers the opportunity to get into the ‘Christmas spirit’ in the weeks preceding the big day itself. One such example is the holiday to the Lille and Bruges Christmas Markets. The relatively short distance between these two Northern European cities means that customers can visit both locations within the space of a two-day/one-night holiday from Newmarket Holidays. The holiday comes with the services of a Newmarket Holidays Tour Manager, and includes one night’s bed and breakfast accommodation at a comfortable hotel close to Lille.

Newmarket Holidays also offers customers the opportunity to spend Christmas abroad at a suitably atmospheric location. Holidays that are available include journeys to Lake Constance, the French Riviera and the Black Forest. One good example of what Newmarket Holidays offers in the festive niche is the ‘Christmas in Austria, Salzburg and the Austrian Lakes’ tour. This is a seven-day holiday featuring a tour of Salzburg, a visit to the Salzkammergut lakes region and an optional excursion to Bavaria. Christmas Day lunch and dinner is also included in the holiday.

As is the case for all holidays offered by Newmarket Holidays, this trip features set departure dates. There are however a large number of departure pick-up points across the country. For example, if a customer wishes to join this particular holiday and is travelling from Cambridgeshire, it is possible to be picked up from specified locations in Cambridge, Ely, Huntingdon, Peterborough, St Neots or Wisbech. Customers specify their preferred pick-up point during the booking process.
