  • Cirque Du Soleil " KOOZA" at The Royal Albert Hall

    Cirque du Soleil return to the iconic Royal Albert Hall with their sensational show KOOZA.

    KOOZA tells the story of The Innocent, a melancholy loner in search of his place in the world.

    KOOZA is a return to the origins of Cirque du Soleil: It combines two circus traditions - acrobatic performance and the art of clowning. The show highlights the physical demands of human performance in all its splendor and fragility, presented in a colorful mélange that emphasizes bold slapstick humor.

    The Innocent's journey brings him into contact with a panoply of comic characters such as the King, the Trickster, the Pickpocket, and the Obnoxious Tourist and his Bad Dog.

    Between strength and fragility, laughter and smiles, turmoil and harmony, KOOZA explores themes of fear, identity, recognition and power. The show is set in an electrifying and exotic visual world full of surprises, thrills, chills, audacity and total involvement.

    As always, we have secured excellent seats for the show located in the stalls.

    Subject to travel, you should enjoy some free time before the show in Knightsbridge before we take you to the The Royal Albert Hall. Show is scheduled to start at 330pm.

    Price includes return travel by coach and matinee performance ticket.

We include entry to its wonderful temporary exhibition looking at the roots of Arthur Conan Doyle’s famous fictional detective, exploring depictions of Victorian London and delving into the enduringly popular characteristics of Sherlock Holmes.

In this exhibition, London’s first on the detective since 1951, early film, photography and paintings plus original Victorian era artefacts are used to recreate the atmosphere of Sherlock’s London, and to re-imagine the places featured in Conan Doyle’s famous stories.

  • Bruges

    This wonderful coach day trip takes you to one of Europe's most beautiful and best-preserved medieval cities, with something to see at every turn.

    Not many people realise that the historic Belgian town of Bruges, or Brugge in Flemish, is in fact within easy driving distance from Calais to make an ideal day trip destination. Bruges has been called "The Venice of the North" due to its canal-lined streets and stunning architecture. It is easy to explore on foot, by horse-drawn carriage or canal cruiser. Tempting Belgian chocolates, beautiful hand-made lace and world-famous beers make Bruges one of our most popular destinations.

    Bruges boasts a rich cultural heritage. The majestic past of Bruges lives on in the many works of art that can be seen in the many museums, often housed in historic buildings. The many places of interest, too, are silent witnesses to the city’s rich heritage. Bruges has a lot to offer from a culinary perspective too. Many restaurants, cafes and bars offer typical regional dishes of Bruges as well as exotic delicacies for different tastes and budgets. Trip Advisor may be able to help you choose a suitable venue.

    Normally a minimum of 4 hours in Bruges subject to travel time. So as to preserve its unique heritage for locals and visitors alike,coaches are not allowed into the inner city. We therefore park at the coach park which is a flat, leisurely 20 minute walk to the main city centre or closeby there is a bus stop where a frequent bus service runs to and from the city centre.

  • Memorials of the Somme guided tour

    We are now little more than a year away from the centenary of the Battle of the Somme. Words cannot convey the enormity of that event. With the battlefield long since restored, we have just the stirring memorials and the expansive cemeteries to remind us of the sacrifice and staggering scale of loss.

    All these historical factors are well understood, but perhaps less well appreciated is how very local this terrible conflict was, taking place along a front of just 20 miles.   Many of the most iconic memorials are so close as to be within sight of each other.

    In this series of guided day excursions, we will visit many of the key locations so well portrayed and explained by http://www.johndclare.net/wwi2_FirstDay_map.htm   - see map below and others on line which follow the course of the battle through to its conclusion after nearly five months of fighting.   Each excursion will visit a different set of memorials, with the day always extended to allow us to enjoy an early evening meal en route home at one of the excellent restaurants along the St Leu historic riverfront in Amiens – a chance to reflect that the Somme deserves to be remembered for more than its tragic place in 20th Century history.

    These excursions are all planned around a 08:50 tunnel crossing which should get us to the battlefield area via the Albert-Bapaume Road, itself a feature of the Front Line, by around 12 Noon. In travelling to the memorials that are on our itinerary for that day we cannot help but pass others. If anyone has a special reason to want to visit any particular location or cemetery please let us know when you book so that we can try to adapt the itinerary for you.

    We will arrange lunch stops on an opportunity basis on each trip. There are excellent light meal facilities at the Ulster Tower for our January visit; in February and March we will aim to break for lunch in the “Ocean Villas” tea rooms re-named by the troops after the name of its village –Auchonvillers! Then in April we can give ourselves some free time for lunch in Peronne.

    The schedule on all these excursions will be to leave the battlefield at around 16:00 for the journey of 40 minutes or so into Amiens, where we then have plenty of time for some late afternoon sightseeing before we enjoy an evening meal, departing the city at around 20:00 for our motorway return to Calais.

    We have not included the price of entry to the Somme 1916 Museum in Albert or the Historial in Peronne in the excursion price as they are optional aspects of the programme.

    Price includes return travel by coach and scheduled Eurotunnel crossing.

     

    Schedule of trips:

    1. Thursday 22nd January 2015   Thiepval, Newfoundland Memorial Beaumont-Hamel, Ulster Tower and neighbouring Cemeteries

    You can enjoy a walk along the River Thames or in Greenwich Park before eating in one of Greenwich’s restaurants. Greenwich shopping is excellent, and you can walk everywhere and easily enjoy the fascinating combination of historic Greenwich Market and quirky, independent and designer shops. Also close by, you could visit the Cutty Sark which has relaunched, opening a new chapter in the extraordinary life of one of the world’s most famous ships. The last surviving tea clipper and the fastest and greatest of her time, she is a living testimony to the bygone, glorious days of sail and, most importantly, a monument to those that lost their lives in the merchant service.(Admission costs apply)

    Includes return travel by coach. This may be a shared departure.

    Admission charges may apply to some special exhibitions and events at the Museums and these are not included unless otherwise stated

  • Cutty Sark & Greenwich

    The Cutty Sark has relaunched, opening a new chapter in the extraordinary life of one of the world’s most famous ships. The last surviving tea clipper and the fastest and greatest of her time, she is a living testimony to the bygone, glorious days of sail and, most importantly, a monument to those that lost their lives in the merchant service.

    Venture aboard and beneath one of the world’s most famous ships. Walk along the decks in the footsteps of the merchant seamen who sailed her over a century ago. Explore the hold where precious cargo was stored on those epic voyages then marvel as you balance a 963-tonne national treasure on just one hand.

    Also enjoy free time in Greenwich. It’s always a great time to visit Greenwich and browse the museums and markets, wander around Greenwich Park or relax in a riverside pub.

    Our day trip includes return travel by coach plus entrance to The Cutty Sark. This may be a shared departure with another day trip.
