The Annual walk to Stony Stratford for the Christmas light Switch on. This day will always start with popping into the Kardamom Lounge for a festive Curry followed by plenty of Christmas Beer. I can say with all honesty that i have never seen the Switch on because Beer and curry are more important but when you come out it does look very festive. They always put on a great display but watch the crowds they are huge and getting up the high street is hard work, however we shall be there next year (!)
his is without doubt one of the best xmas markets we have visited in a long time. We booked a Hotel only a Mile away from the centre and once you get into the City centre it was crammed full of stalls and shops. Plenty of xmas food and drink was consumed during the festivities and if you visit on the opening night you have a fantastic Firework display. We shall definitely visit this again next year i hope. Have a look at the official Website for details.
Great visit to Waddesdon manor a national trust house and home to the Rothschild family. We always plan a visit near Christmas especially after dark as they always put on a great light show for the visitors. It only cost a few pound if your are a member of the NT, however plan your trip carefully it can get very crowded and there was a large crowd waiting for the bus back to the car parks. Please have a look at the entry in Wikipedia for more info I have also included a few links for your interest
We have visited the Manor many times in the past however this was the first time we have booked for the Evening. You must pre-book to gain entry to the house so don’t turn up on the day expecting to gain entry, goto the homepage to book at https://waddesdon.org.uk . The best bit about the christmas display is the christmas lights – this year they are projected onto the Grand house and lasts about 10 minutes before a small break and then repeated. I done a small video have a look.
