Day 3

After a leisurely breakfast we head to beautiful Castle Howard, home to the Howard family for over 300 years and decorated for the Christmas season. Each sumptuous room will be decked with an exquisite collection of decorations, bathed by the glow of candle and firelight. Beautifully dressed trees sparkle with colour and imagination, whilst an abundance of floral, foliage and berry arrangements bring the outside in, adding a traditional touch to the festive interiors. Later we commence our homeward journey arriving back in East Anglia by mid evening where our door to door service will take you home.
