Going Camping? Then Hire a Minibus to Get You There

It doesn’t matter what the weather is like in the UK, there are still many of us that enjoy camping trips.

Are you planning on going camping with some friends? Don’t want to take the car. Then hire a minibus and driver to get you there. If there are quite a few of you going, you will most likely have to go in separate vehicles, if you were driving yourself. With a minibus you can all travel in style and comfort together, even if it’s just for the weekend. Choosing to hire a minibus with its driver is cheaper than having to fuel etc. more than one vehicle to get you there. Start your adventure from leaving home together, before getting to the campsite.

Minibuses are probably a lot safer than years gone by, because they have to pass such vigorous rules and regulations. They are very spacious giving you plenty of leg room, and to pack away all your camping gear. Minibus companies can now fit trailers to the back of their vehicles for extra luggage.

Hiring a minibus means you can chat away with your friends and family along the way. Plus, you can travel in style and comfort. Many of the minibus companies around the country now have their vehicles fitted with seatbelts, air conditioning, CD and DVD players, plasma TVs, tables, reclining seats, docks for iPods, tinted windows and even curtains.

No need to worry about keeping an eye on the other traffic or getting lost. Minibus drivers are very knowledgeable about roads, where road works etc. are, giving you an enjoyable journey to let you relax. You can rest assured that your minibus driver will get you to the campsite without any hitches. Not only will they drive you there, but also take you home at the end of your holiday. Most minibuses seat from 8 to 16 people. They will also pick you up door-to-door or at a location of your choice.

If you are planning a camping trip over in Europe, you must check that the drivers have the necessary documents. There are more rules over there about buses transporting passengers.

Camping can be very enjoyable if you like the outdoors. Cooking your food in the open-air can give it a certain taste that is different to indoor cooking. Many campsites have buildings for showers and toilets these days, as well as running water. They are not as primitive as they once was. Plus, the tents you can buy have separate rooms in them. They are lot more comfortable, making your camping trip a lot more enjoyable.

Many people are taking up camping as some form of holiday, because it’s cheaper than staying in a hotel. You can also tour around, and not stay in one spot for your holiday. The only downside to camping in the UK is probably the weather. We cannot guarantee good weather from one day to the next. So, as long as you don’t mind getting wet, camping is the way to go.

Fancy An Early Spring Break? Treat Yourself To A Luxury Hotel

Now we’ve officially had the shortest day of the year, it won’t be long before the evenings start getting lighter and people begin to think about taking a spring break. If you’re planning on going back to a hotel you’ve previously stayed at then you won’t be stuck for choice, but for anyone who hasn’t visited an area before it can sometimes be a bit hit and miss. Here are a couple of hotels that you won’t be disappointed with; both of them get extremely good reviews online by previous guests.

Of course you don’t have to visit the country to have a great time; you can also have a break to remember in the capital. If you stay at a luxury hotel such as The Montcalm at London’s Marble Arch you can have the best of both worlds. Try sightseeing early in the day, then head back to the hotel where you can enjoy a spot of pampering in the hotel spa with facilities that include a steam room, sauna and hot tub. Or try one of the body treatments or massages by a qualified therapist to help you relax.

If being in a large city doesn’t appeal, then how about the Feversham Arms Hotel in the market town of Helmsley North Yorkshire? Surrounded by countryside, it’s an ideal place to stay if you’re after somewhere in the north of England. It has a sophisticated but laid back feel to it and has 33 individual rooms to choose from. The hotel prides itself on its friendly staff who will make sure your stay is enjoyable. Try booking a spa package to make the most of your stay and experience some first class facilities which include an outdoor hot tub, salt vapour room or ice cave for a unique break.

Top Tips to Find Your Ideal Theatre Break in London

Going to a theatre performance or to a musical is a fantastic way to put an end to a day (or week) of stressful work. Of course, when it comes to theatre plays nothing comes closer to watching a performance at the glitzy London West End. And since you are at it, why not turn an evening at the theatre into a luxurious weekend break? If you are watching your budget but don’t want to give up on this fantastic opportunity of enjoying a break in the West End, read on for some useful tips.

Book in advance
This is particularly applicable if you are interested in watching some of the most popular West End shows. But how far in advance should you book? Four months is what most bargain experts recommend. At reputable companies like Newmarket Holidays, London theatre packages are offered for top shows like The Lion King, Phantom of the Opera, Wicked, and Mamma Mia. You can book now for shows taking place in March to benefit from the best savings.

Book you tickets as part of a package
Many travel agents and tour operators offer West End packages that include tickets to the show, transportation to London, and accommodation. These companies are able to get better deals with the box offices of the top theatres, so by booking a package you could end up saving up to 50 per cent in the price of your tickets. Businesses like Newmarket Holidays will help you to find fantastic deals for London theatre breaks, and may even be able to offer you possibility of upgrading your seats.

Go to the previews
If you are in for a new experience and want to save money at the same time, consider booking tickets for the previews that take place just before the opening of a West End show. Because technically speaking, the production of the show will still be ongoing, theatres offer discounted tickets at bargain prices. As a bonus, you get to see the show before anyone else!

 Avoid Fridays and Saturdays
Demands for theatre tickets are much higher on Friday and Saturday nights, so the prices rise accordingly. Instead, go for a mid-week theatre break and book your London theatre trip any day from Monday to Thursday. With reputable companies like Newmarket Holidays, you can choose which day you want to travel to London, so that you get more value for your money.

The Best Disabled-Friendly Cities in Europe

If you are wondering where to travel next, and want to a place which provides you both with accessibility and comfort, read up on this guide on the best disability-friendly cities in the old continent, being Europe for those not in the know.

We will provide you with three of the friendliest cities, and with a bit of information on what to do and see in each of these cities. Keep reading and enjoy.

Berlin
This imperious and proud city won an award for best adapted European city in 2013. The city got this award due to generally having better invested in obstacle removal, a heftier transport system adapted for disabled travelers, better conditions and generally a better approach for every type of disability, from visually impaired travelers to those who have restricted mobility.

There is a lot to do and see in Berlin, and it would be difficult to include every kind of attraction here. The top places which come to mind are: The Scholss Chartlottenburg, the Brandeburg gate, the Haus am Checkpoint Charlie Museum and the Unter den Linde. Keep an eye out for all these, and they should be easy to get to as they are all very accessible. Remember, renting a disabled-friendly Berlin short term apartment with a website like City Getaway.com is the best way to ensure a comfortable holiday.

London
London is very much the place of choice for many first time travelers in Europe, and a metropolis which offers the best for those with disabilities. Approximately 20 million people visit London every year, with a large number of disabled holiday makers among those visitors. London has wheelchair access for almost all of its top spots, including the London Eye Ferris Wheel, Westminster cathedral, St Paul’s and much more.

Again, the top places to visit in London are probably those which everyone is already aware of. “Which ones?” you may end up asking; the answer depends on what you most like to see of course. As mentioned, Westminster cathedral is probably a popular sight for holiday makers as well as Buckingham palace. In any case, it does not matter what you will end up visiting as London is well equipped for disabled travelers.

Paris
Paris can still be considered the world capital for fashion, art, culture and philosophy. The city is slightly more challenging than London for disabled travelers, but it is still well equipped for most holiday makers with a disability. The best way to get around in this bustling metropolis is probably by taxi, and wheelchair accessibility should ensure a comfortable experience for all.

All the well known museums and sites have excellent facilities for disabled travelers; these sites include all of the Louvre (including easy access to the Mona Lisa, The Venus and much more), the Eiffel Tower, the Versailles Palace, the Cathedral of Notre Dame and much more. Paris must be visited at least once during one’s lifetime, and it is sure to provide a memorable experience for all but the sternest of travelers.

So there you have it, three of the best European cities with excellent access to disabled travelers. They may seem like very much the spots where everyone goes to, but they are still the most popular holiday destinations in Europe.

London’s Great Attractions

A lot of people visit London for both business and leisure. And why not? Aside from a string of great attractions, it is also home to a number of London conference venues that play host to some of the grandest, most important events. But whether you are planning a visit for business or a holiday with a loved one, or a mix of the two, it is a crime to miss out on the attractions this great city has to offer.

If you have the time or the inclination to venture outside the London conference venues, here are some of the highly recommended attractions you need to visit and experience up close and personal:

Big Ben

Even if you are visiting purely for business or out scouting for possible London conference venues, this oversized clock is considered the city’s landmark. It is also the world’s largest clock inside a tower, which was installed way back the 19th century. The clock got its name from the clock’s hour bell, Big Ben.

 London Eye

Another famous landmark of the city is the London Eye, which remains to be a very popular tourist attraction to this day. The London Eye offers you the ultimate observation deck wheel that is situated on the South Bank’s Jubilee Gardens. This gigantic structure stands 135 meters and was built as an integral part of the city’s millennium celebrations.

Tower of London

The Tower of London is another great landmark of the city, which served as the prison, stronghold, royal palace, execution site and treasury in the past. Today, it is recognized as a World Heritage Site and is one of the most popular attractions of London. Explore the cells and turrets and a day of explore will allow you to see the beefeaters and the Crown Jewels.

St. Paul’s Cathedral

Another iconic attraction, it is the spiritual heart of the city and is considered to have a more human feel to it compared to the great Westminster Abbey. You can enjoy the best views of London from one of its lofty lanterns.

The Buckingham Palace

A visit to the Buckingham Palace is of course a mainstay in any tourist itinerary. If you happen to visit London during the summer months, the palace is open for tourists who want to snoop around. You will be dazzled by the opulent interiors of the Palace, including an array of great paintings and Her majesty’s secret dinner service.

London Zoo

The London Zoo is the oldest scientific zoo in the planet. This mega-menagerie was opened back in 1828 and continues to be a research organization in the present day, with even supports a molecular biology team.
Truly London remains to be among the great destinations in England today; apart from great London conference venues, which offers ideal locations for business conventions and seminars. Of course, you don’t want to miss out in exploring the great many attractions that offer some of the most unique, enthralling experiences even for world weary travellers.
