One of the best places to be during the festive season – wander the cobbled streets and take in the sounds of laughter and sights of twinkling lights from the stalls or enjoy a drink in front of a roaring log fire in one of the many cosy pubs. Enjoy the great shopping, unbeatable festive atmosphere and iconic views from the top of the Big Wheel.

Later meet your coach and make your way to your hotel.

After breakfast depart and head to Glasgow. A city that comes alive with fun and laughter at this time of year – explore the twinkling chalets spread out in George Square and after all that browsing, have a rest in one of the authentic German bars and relax over a mulled wine or hot chocolate. Spoil yourself at one of the seasonal chalets overflowing with original present ideas, or indulge in a tasty treat such as bratwurst, hog roast or crispy duck. Later meet your coach and make your way to your hotel. Tonight we have a treat for you – after our 3 course evening meal enjoy a blast from the past with the outstanding vocal talents of the ABBA (4 Dec) or Tom Jones (11 Dec) Tribute Act – we bet you won’t keep still for long.
