It’s the most magical time of year to go on holiday and spend cherished time together. Our short breaks in December are a brilliant way for you and your family to enjoy festive activities, gorgeous decorations and all-round holiday cheer.
It’s an expensive time of year for all of us, so we make it easy to find last minute December holiday deals filled with festive fun without splashing out. For December breaks, UK destinations are perfect. You can nip away for a few days for a Yuletide holiday or beat the crowds and save money with an off-peak, midweek break.
Perfectly designed for families with children under five, our Just For Tots Christmas Fantasy breaks will have everyone revelling in the festive spirit. Created to fit with little ones’ routines, activities are short, fun and available in the day and include visits to Father Christmas, arts and crafts, and even a magical, snowy show.
Our Christmas Fantasy breaks take place in the lead up to Christmas. You'll feel excitement in the air and experience the magic of the season. Whether you're introducing your little ones to the festive season, visiting Father Christmas, or joining in with any of the many Christmas themed activities we have to offer.
