Savour the season in Southampton

Enjoy a festive UK holiday in the heart of the historic city in the contemporary 4-star Leonardo Grand Harbour Southampton. The stylish hotel is a perfect base for a Christmas break in the city, walking distance from the the superb shopping at West Quay and well located for exploring other jewels of the south coast – including stately Beaulieu which you can discover on an included excursion – and of course for exploring the water in one of Britain’s foremost ports.

After arriving on December 23, look forward to a welcome drink and then dinner in the hotel’s stylish Marco Pierre White Steakhouse & Grill. You’ll be heading out on Christmas Eve, heading into the Hampshire countryside to visit Beaulieu – one of the grandest stately homes in the country and home to the National Motor Museum. Lunch and dinner are back at the hotel as you prepare for the big day! Enjoy Christmas Lunch with all the trimmings, but be sure to save a little room for mince pies and a hot drink over the Queen’s speech on Christmas Day afternoon. On Boxing Day you can look forward to some time at leisure before and after a carvery lunch – perhaps hit the sales in the nearby West Quay shopping complex or take a stroll by the waterfront. You might even find your way to St Mary’s Stadium, home of Premier League football club Southampton, should they have a festive fixture at home today. Dinner is back at the hotel tonight. Depart after breakfast the following day to begin your journey home.

Beaulieu is one of the Treasure Houses of England, a venerable collection of the ten best stately homes, castles and palaces in the country. Palace House – originally the Abbey's gatehouse – has been home to the Montagu family since 1538. Extensively remodelled in the 19th century, it is packed with family treasures. The beautiful ruins of Beaulieu Abbey have been conserved by the family, after its destruction on the orders of Henry VIII during the dissolution of the monasteries. Beaulieu is also home to the National Motor Museum and here you learn about the history of motoring from  the earliest models to state-of-the-art F1 racing cars.
