A Yorkshire Christmas with a difference....

The Crowne Plaza Royal Victoria is a 19th-century hotel near Sheffield's lively city centre offering a traditional retreat for solo travellers. Get to know your dedicated solos host and fellow guests during a welcome drink after you arrive, then enjoy dinner followed by entertainment.

On Christmas Eve an included visit to Buxton is available. The coach will pass through scenic countryside and you will have free time to explore this popular spa town. We return for a late light buffet lunch. This afternoon, you may wish to walk into Sheffield city centre to the Christmas market or spend a relaxing afternoon at leisure. Meet fellow guests for a festive drink before a performance from a local choir, followed by dinner. Start Christmas Day with a Buck's Fizz breakfast then celebrate with a traditional lunch followed by afternoon tea and entertainment this evening. Perhaps explore Sheffield with your companions on Boxing Day and discover some of its many parks and gardens. A farewell dinner and entertainment will round off your Christmas break. Bid your new friends goodbye as you depart after breakfast the following day.
