Its history dates back over 750 years where it originated as a sheep market, after King Henry III gave instructions for the town to have a market every Wednesday. A 13th-century rule that no other market can be set up within a day's sheep drive (about 6 miles) from Romford still exists to this day! Today the market continues to thrive.

    There is also the recently revamped Romford Shopping Hall with over 40 high quality retail units and the popular Liberty Shopping Centre with over 100 well known shops.

  • Kensington Palace

    At Kensington Palace, take in the Gardens and don’t miss the wiggly walk or the dramatic East front where Princess Louise’s statue of her mother, Queen Victoria, is seated looking out over the park. You can also have a drink and bite to eat in the Palace Cafe or Queen Anne's 18th-century Orangery, in the heart of Kensington Gardens, once the setting for the most lavish of court entertainments.

    Diana: Her Fashion Story

    From her first public appearances in 1981, Diana, Princess of Wales, captivated the world’s attention as a princess, as a trendsetter and as a patron and advocate of charities. Twenty years on from her death, a new exhibition and temporary garden celebrating her life will be opened at Kensington Palace, her home for over 15 years.

    ‘Diana: Her Fashion Story’ will trace the evolution of the Princess’s style, from the demure, romantic outfits of her first public appearances, to the glamour, elegance and confidence of her later life. From her earliest royal engagements, everything Diana wore was closely scrutinised, and the exhibition will explore how she navigated her unique position in the public eye: learning to use her image to engage and inspire people, and to champion the causes she cared about.

    Discover exquisite and celebrated outfits from throughout the Princess’s public life. The exhibition will bring together an extraordinary collection of garments, ranging from the glamorous evening gowns worn on engagements in the 1980s, to the chic Catherine Walker suits that made up Diana’s ‘working wardrobe’ in the 1990s. The Princess’s relationship with her favourite designers will be explored through a display of some of their original fashion sketches, created for her during the design process.

    Exhibition highlights will include the pale pink Emanuel blouse worn for Diana’s engagement portrait by Lord Snowdon in 1981, and Victor Edelstein’s iconic ink blue velvet gown, famously worn at the White House when the Princess danced with John Travolta. A blue tartan Emanuel suit, worn for an official visit to Venice in the 1980s, will go on display in public for the first time. The suit, a rare survival of the Princess’s daywear, was only recently rediscovered and acquired by Historic Royal Palaces – the charity responsible for Kensington Palace - at auction.

    Whilst in residence at Kensington Palace, the Princess admired the changing floral displays in the historic Sunken Garden and would often stop to talk to the gardeners who care for it. In 2017, the gardeners at Kensington will dedicate the new planting in the garden to Diana, creating a temporary White Garden.

    Complementing the palace’s exhibition, ‘Diana: Her Fashion Story’, the garden will be planted with flowers and foliage inspired by memories of the Princess’s life, image and style. Spring planting will include an elegant palette of tulips and scented narcisii through a carpet of 'forget me nots'. In the summer, pots of classic English white roses will surround the reflective pool in the centre of the garden and the planting will become more exuberant, with glowing ornamental grasses weaving through Cosmos daisies and billows of graceful Gaura.

     

    Queen Victoria

    Discover stories from Queen Victoria's life told in her own words in the Victoria Revealed exhibition; master the games of the royal court in the magnificent King's state apartments; uncover secrets of a fragile dynasty in the beautiful Queen's State Apartments.

    Please note: The Victoria Revealed exhibition will close on 27th February and reopen June 2017 (TBA).

    The Thursford Christmas Spectacular is the biggest and most exciting Christmas show of all time in Britain. Come and experience the popular blend of Christmas entertainment, with dazzling dancers, beautiful costumes and Christmas songs and carols, including outstanding music and singing from their cast of over one hundred.

    Each show is a pageant of spectacle and colour - the music a seamless transition from an up-beat dance routine to a choral rendition of a Christmas carol, a show which would not be out of place in any London West End theatre.

    Thursford Chrismtmas Spectacular

    It all started one Christmas, more than 25 years ago, when a small festive show took place in the rural location of Thursford. Featuring the choral scholars of King's College Cambridge, organisers had little idea that their seasonal offering would be the birth of what is now England's largest Christmas show.

    The location may be remote, but each year thousands of visitors make an annual pilgrimage to experience the multi-million pound Thursford Christmas Spectacular.

    The Auditorium is a grotto in itself. Antique carousels, fairground organs and steam engines, surround the 1,500 seats plus the whole lot is decked out with enough fairy lights to put a twinkle in everyone's eye. A magical show in a magical setting.

  • Winchester Christmas Market

    Founded in 2006, Winchester Christmas Market is recognised as one of the best in Europe, renowned for its unique location and high quality exhibitors where wonderful gifts, decorations and festive foods are found in abundance. Inspired by traditional German Christmas Markets, the pretty wooden chalets are situated in Winchester’s historic inner close surrounding a real ice rink. The exhibitors are hand-picked for their interesting, high quality and unique products many of which cannot be bought on the high street. If you are looking for that special something, make sure you visit the jewellers, painters, glass makers and textile artists selling unique British gifts and decorations.

    There's also plenty of choice when it comes to food and drink at the Christmas Market and you'll find chalets selling festive favourites such as mulled wine, bratwurst, mince pies and stollen. Alternatively, the Cathedral Refectory and ice rink cafe provide a warm and comfortable setting with plenty of seating and great menus.

    Away from the Christmas Market, Winchester itself is popular for its shopping streets and architecture and quirky open air events, Winchester is most well known for its eleventh century cathedral and for the Great Hall which for over 600 years has housed the mysterious Round Table. Winchester College is the oldest continuously running school in the country, whilst the Hospital of St Cross, a medieval almshouse, still offers the Wayfarer’s Dole to travellers as it has done for more than eight centuries. Home of good food, birthplace of the modern game of cricket, resting place of author Jane Austen and inspiration to the many craft-makers and artists who live here, Winchester is truly a destination for all seasons.

    Includes return travel by coach. Subject to travel, we aim to arrive around 1130 to midday, leaving for home around 4pm.
