Sunday 6th - Monday 7th December 2020
Join us on Sunday 6th December 2020 for a Christmas Party night, and enjoy an all-inclusive evening at the regal Medieval Banquet by flickering torchlight, in the vaulted cellars of Ivory House, just a stone’s throw away from the Tower of London and Tower Bridge. Accompanying King Henry VIII are fighting knights, strolling players and dancing wenches which provide a magical medieval pageant for your delight. There will be a festive dinner, decorations and a great atmosphere.
The evening usually starts around 6.30pm, and finishes at around 10.30pm.
Costumes are available to hire for the evening – pre booking of these is not necessary, and the charge is currently £10.
Although there will be free wine, beer & soft drinks throughout the meal service, there is a licenced bar available for those who want something different.
Please note: Unfortunately owing to the location of the banquet, it is difficult to access for those with limited mobility, as access is via several steps (and no lift is available).
Day 1: From your local joining point we make our way to the capital. Arriving in London early afternoon. There will be a few hours of free time before we head to the highlight of the tour. It’s just a short walk from the hotel to Ivory House, the setting for the Medieval Banquet where a four course feast awaits you with unlimited beer and wine during the meal in King Henry’s Banqueting Halls. Prepare to be swashed and buckled by the fiery knights, marvel at minstrels and enjoy varied entertainment. After the show, there is music and dancing or alternatively you can take a night cap at one of the bars in the area or back at the hotel. The evening starts around 6.30pm, and finishes around 10.30pm (times to be confirmed.)
Day 2: After an English breakfast at the hotel, you have more time at leisure. Why not head into the Tower of London (not included) or maybe take in the Christmas market stalls on London’s South bank. Alternatively you may wish to enjoy a River cruise from Tower Pier either to Greenwich or back into Central London (the boats are fully covered and heated so it’s a nice way to start the day). Late afternoon we will depart London, and make our way back to Norfolk and your chosen joining point.
Festive programme subject to change.
