Avoid the stresses of a last­minute fes­tive rush by treat­ing your­self to a spa break. The award-win­ning Rag­dale Hall in Le­ices­ter­shire is known for of­fer­ing to­tal re­lax­ation in lux­u­ri­ous sur­round­ings, so it’s just the spot for a sea­sonal escape. Their three-night Christ­mas break (De­cem­ber 24 to 26, prices from £222) in­cludes Cham­pagne cock­tails, re­ju­ve­nat­ing body treat­ments and break­fast in bed, along­side all the trim­mings for a tra­di­tional Christ­mas such as carol singing, a four-course Christ­mas Day lunch and win­try walks in the grounds.

Fam­ily favourites like ice-skat­ing in St Andrew Square, Santa Land and the Christ­mas Mar­ket in East Princes Street Gar­dens re­turn to the city, or take an af­ter-dark stroll around Ed­in­burgh Zoo to ex­plore the 450 re­mark­able ‘Gi­ant Lan­terns of China’ (De­cem­ber, 1, 2017 to Fe­bru­ary 25, 2018).
