Snow & Cancellations

13th Jan, 2010 |

With all the snow there are loads of cancelled flights. This has meant delays, change of airports and even cancelled holidays. It can be a miserable situation. But if you do get stuck, just give us a call, we might still have some availability. Our contact number is 0871 271 3399. And if you need, we will even sort your transfers to make your life a little easier.

Although we are very ideally situated close to Heathrow and we are able to host your car while on holiday (please enquire for more information), you will find that it is also quite reasonable to park your car in one of the Airport Car Parks. I have listed a couple of companies below for you to be able to compare prices. From my experience, they offer the lowest prices around.

Boxing Day

26th Dec, 2008 |

Boxing Day has many traditions. Most commonly know for:-

  • Gift Giving (boxed) by employers /employees
  • Staff taking left overs in a box home after the Christmas Celebrations
  • Churches counting their boxes with Money to spread to the poor
  • Capturing of a wren into a box to ask for a good harvest

It has changed over the years and kids today know it as a day to count their money save through the year (plus their Christmas bonuses) followed by a spending spree in the Sales!! In other words after the heavy spending of Christmas, shops reduce their prices so that you cannot resist their sales.

Here in London sales can be very stressful. It is not unheard of that people camp outside NEXT so when it opens at 4am on boxing day, they are the first in to grab the best goodies!! However, if you want to avoid the rush, you can actually bet the queues and mad rush by shopping online.

Personally to me…. it is a time to Shop! Shop! Shop!

Guy Fawkes – Bon Fire Night

5th Nov, 2008 |

Guy Fawkes was a member of a Roman Catholic group who planned to blow up parliament to dissolve the regime. As a result we celebrate the 5th November as Bon Fire Night. Many Places through huge firework displays and Theme Parks often have special nights.

Children often dress up a “guy” and will ask for a penny for the guy. It is traditional to give them some money.

Much has been done to celebrate this day including having verses written. The most popular perhaps being:-

“Remember, remember the fifth of November,
The gunpowder, treason and plot,
I see no reason
Why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot.”

Hamleys – The world’s largest toyshop!

1st Oct, 2008 |

Hamleys is known for the finest toys in the world. It is the most renowned toyshop in the world. People from all over the world come to see it. The best known is the huge multi storey store in Oxford Street. So if you are trying to vere away from buying silver baby gifts, then Hamleys is the place to shop!

The best bit, is despite their fame and reputation, they have not over inflated their prices, so you can shop to your heart’s content. However you do need to bear in mind that you have to carry it all back home! But we have a trick up our sleeves. Hamleys will deliver their products to you! Not only will they just deliver, they won’t even charge you for delivery if you spend more than £75 which is easy to do if shopping for the kids (and I am including yourself!!).

So go for the fun of it, but order online and save your hand the ache of carrying all those toys back home!!
