This year over 1,000 military musicians, standard bearers and other performers will line up for the 2017 Birmingham Military Tattoo. The World’s best marching bands, rousing music and spectacular displays of military splendour will ensure an unforgettable show. We also visit the excellent Frankfurt Christmas Market, Stratford-uponAvon, Winchester Christmas Market and enjoy tea and cake at Hanbury Hall.
Day 1 We pick you up by taxi from your door, join the coach and make our way to Stratford and our hotel, travelling via the Cotswolds and making suitable refreshment stops along the way.
Day 2 After a morning in Stratford, we travel the short distance to Hanbury Hall. The Hall was home to the Vernon family and the fascinating history of the key members are brought to life as you wander through the 18th Century house and gardens. We have an introductory talk when we arrive, free time to explore and then a cup of tea or coﬀee and a slice of cake in the tearoom.
Day 3 This morning we make our way into Birmingham to explore the Frankfurt Christmas Market. In the afternoon we transfer to the National Indoor Arena for the 2017 Birmingham Military Tattoo where we have seats in block 11. Some walking to reach the venue may be necessary due to blocked streets.
Day 4 Today we make our way homeward with a stop at the famous Winchester Christmas Market. We arrive in the local area early evening, where your taxi will be waiting to take you home.
