In this special festive episode we’re heading to one of the UK’s most visited destinations, The Cotswolds, as it enjoys a magical Christmas. Following farmers and artisans, chefs and stately home curators, the people of this stunning region really know how to celebrate Christmas in style.  

We’ll experience the delight of the Christmas market in the gorgeous town of Broadway, where its High Street becomes a bustling winter wonderland of stalls and late-night shopping, and we’ll join the makers selling their seasonal treats. And visit a luxury hotel to see how a top chef makes a festive afternoon tea to remember.  

From wandering the spectacular Christmas light trails at beautiful Blenheim Palace, where thousands of lights will illuminate the stately home’s magnificent gardens to the Cotswolds’ very own reindeer herd bringing the magic of Christmas to life for children and grown ups alike. 

And in Burford we’ll join the florists getting in the festive spirit, creating a spectacular floral archway to compliment the seasonal wreaths and bouquets they’re creating.
