This year over 1,000 military musicians, standard bearers and other performers will line up for the 2018 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-upon-Avon, Winchester Christmas Market and enjoy tea and cake in the Cotswolds.
Day 1 We pick you up by taxi from your door, join the coach and make our way up to Warwickshire and our hotel, making suitable refreshment stops along the way.
Day 2 We spend our morning in Stratford-upon-Avon, where you might like to visit some of the sights associated with The Bard, or just explore the town. We then travel into the Cotswolds, visiting some of the honey-stoned villages, such as Broadway and Stow-on-the-Wold, stopping for tea and cake during the afternoon.
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 2018 Birmingham Military Tattoo where we have seats in block 10. (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.
