Although the Christmas lights switch-on is definitely a popular event, the actual fact Peppa Pig will be there can make it a must for all families with small children desperate to meet the much-loved character.

The wedding, which is sure to see families going to the area from all over great britain so their children know hello to Peppa Pig, is simply days after Birmingham's big switch-on (November 14) and before Wolverhampton's event (November 25).

Should you wanted a short break before the Christmas rush, there are lots of other strings to Dudley's bow that make it a worthwhile place to visit.

Himley Hall, between Kingswinford and Wombourne, was integrated the 18th century as a substitute for a medieval mansion.

The Palladian mansion that replaced the original house features a 180 acre garden developed by the famous landscape gardener Capability Brown - it also includes a beautiful great lake fed by way of a series of waterfalls from a higher chain of smaller pools.

Himley Hall, using its beautiful grounds, abundance of wildlife and nine-hole course, is now a superb visitor attraction - the lake even plays host to the area's famous Dragon Boat Race!

The stunning home is also holding a Craft and Christmas Gift Fayre on November 28 and 29 - making Dudley an ideal festive getaway, whatever your likes or age.
