November 2011… Take the strain out of your pre-Christmas travel plans by using AFerry.co.uk to book your ferry travel to Europe. It could not be easier at this one stop shop for ferry travel Europe – wide.
Christmas shopping could be lots of fun at one of the many Christmas markets that take place on the Continent in the weeks leading up to December 25th. For something a bit different try the Funky Xmas Market in Amsterdam at the Westergasfabriek, packed with cheerful decorations, delicious aromas and numerous craft stalls to create a happy holiday atmosphere. The Funky Xmas Market is on the weekend of 22nd and 23rd December, from 12:00 to 18:00. Entrance is free. Spreading the seasonal joy a little bit further in 2012, there’s also a special Sinterklaas edition of the market on 2nd December and a New Year’s Market on 6th January 2013! Travel to Holland from Newcastle with DFDS, from Harwich with Stena Line or from Hull with P&O – all bookable at the best prices on the AFerry.co.uk website.
Otherwise try a day trip to France. Boulogne, for example, is magical during the festive season. When Boulogne’s atmospheric Christmas market is in full swing, carol singers serenade the shoppers and the whiff of mulled wine sweetens the frosty air. On sale is a sumptuous choice of local produce, gifts and crafts. There is lots of entertainment including music, fireworks and the illumination of the Belfry. Highlights include the St.Nicolas Parade through Boulogne’s town centre, followed by a firework display near the port on Saturday 6th December and the actual Christmas Market takes place on Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th December within the walls of the delightful Old Town. In the run up to Christmas shops stay open on Sunday 14th and 21st December. Cross the Channel with DFDS, P&O, MyFerryLink or Eurotunnel.
For all the best fares and special offers visit the AFerry.co.uk website and save a little more to spend in the Christmas Market of your choice or even at the Calais Wine Superstore where AFerry has negotiated a great deal for all customers. Book a short-sea ferry crossing to France from England with AFerry.co.uk and claim two free bottles of Jacob’s Creek Reserve Sauvignon Blanc when you spend over £40 in The Calais Wine Superstore. The Calais Wine Superstore sells a range of over 500 wines at UK Duty Free prices and the helpful English-speaking staff makes shopping a pleasure.
