Over the next 4 nights we will enjoy a traditional festive lunch, guided walking tour of Stratford-upon-Avon and evening entertainment – a great way to spend the most wonderful time of the year!
Welcome to DoubleTree by Hilton Stratford upon Avon. We can check in from 15.00 and will hear all our favourite Christmas Carols until 16:00. Following a welcome meeting hosted by our Tour Leader we will enjoy dinner in the hotel restaurant.
Following a leisurely breakfast we will meet our walking guide outside our hotel who will take us on a tour of the medieval market town of Stratford-upon-Avon famous for being the 16th-century birthplace of William Shakespeare, possibly the most famous writer in the English language. Our afternoon will be at leisure to enjoy what this delightful market town has to offer.
A hearty breakfast will be served from 07.30 to 10:30 and the main event follows at lunchtime with a three-course traditional plated Christmas dinner with a visit from Santa! The afternoon is our own to relax after our hearty lunch. The Queen’s Speech will be shown at 15.00 with tea, coffee and Christmas cake in the Bar. Our evening meal is a relaxed affair in the form of a buffet.
After a leisurely breakfast the day is our own to relax and enjoy the surroundings of our hotel or to head back in to the town to do some Boxing Day shopping or take in more of the history of Shakespeare. Cream tea will be served in the hotel restaurant during the afternoon. Once evening comes a carvery will be served followed by evening entertainment.
A final delicious breakfast awaits us in the hotel restaurant from 07:30 – 10:30 before we wish each other a fond farewell.

There is often confusion on the question of gratuities, since it frequently depends on the type of holiday, location and, of course, your attitude towards tipping, as to what is normally expected. In order to give you a rough idea, we have given appropriate guidance below. The Tour Leader will be on hand to offer advice or suggestions if required but gratuities are offered entirely at the sole discretion of the individual.We suggest a group collection at the beginning of your holiday to cover drivers, guides and hotel staff (including restaurant, kitchen and reception staff) of approximately £5. Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of bar staff and housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (the rounding up of the drinks bill and a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, restaurants expect a 10% gratuity (do check that service has not already been added to your bill). For taxis 10% of the metered fare.

I was so nervous about embarking on my first Solos Holiday, but I shouldn’t have been – it was the best thing I have ever done!
Wow! Got to see the famous shipwreck beach in Zakynthos with Solos. Can’t wait to discover more of their destinations!
Our tour leader Monica was exceptional! Had such a good time and will be rebooking with Solos. Thanks for a great holiday!
