Now on sale for December 2021, families can get their Christmas trips sorted for just £139pp.

The two day trip including return coach travel, a day to explore London as well an overnight stay at a three star hotel, with breakfast including.

The itinerary states: "Blanketed with twinkling festive lights and decorations, take the time to explore [London's] top sights at this magical time of year, or why not get started on some Christmas shopping and enjoy an early dinner before we head to our hotel for our overnight stay."

Families then head to the Cholsey & Wallingford Railway, where passengers enjoy a reading of The Polar Express book, along with carols and a troop of singing chefs onboard.
