Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Bellevue Beach and Aurinkolahti Beach. Get some cultural insight at Rock Church and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali). Change things up with a short trip to Nuuksio National Park in Espoo (about 46 minutes away).

Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 2 hours traveling from Manchester to Helsinki. Plan for little chillier temperatures traveling from Manchester in December, with highs in Helsinki at 3°C and lows at -3°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 21st (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
