Book your own coach and we’ll always provide bed & board for your driver as well as overnight parking.
Some SleepOvers include the coach (max 160 miles from hotel). On 5-
If you want we can book your preferred coach company and favourite driver on your behalf and include the cost of this in our package. This will bring every penny of your members money under our 100% Passenger Payment Protection. And if we book your coach company you’ll get extra free places so that as many as one in ten travel free.
For less than the face value of the ticket alone you could offer your members a top price seat for a West End matinee, a three course hotel carvery with coffee and the coach there and back!
What’s more, our London Theatre & Carvery package is a Jam Buster helping you to avoid the London rush hour at both ends of the day. You can arrive in London between midday and 1.00pm to buy a bite to eat near the theatre and after the matinee performance you’ll take your seats in an attractive hotel in Bloomsbury for a three course carvery meal including coffee.
It’s a dream for group organisers with no menu selections to make -
And if a top price seat for a top West End show, a three course hotel carvery with coffee and the coach travel there and back for less than the face value of the theatre ticket isn’t enough? Just wait until your group discover that, despite being in a top London hotel, they are going to be paying pub prices for their drinks! Oh my they are going to love you! Yes, I did say pub prices: a glass of wine is not much more than £2. Bam! A bottle of classic St Emilion red wine -
The recently refurbished Carvery elegantly combines traditional quality with modern comfort. Enjoy classic carvery cooking and an impressive wine list in handsome surroundings.
And it’s all based on that great English tradition: the roast dinner. You’ll find roast beef and Yorkshire pudding, or roast pork with apricot and sage stuffing. And we always make sure there’s a Vegetarian dish of the day.
What Shows Can We Choose?
Any show you want -
Les Miserables (Queens) Wednesday
Jam Busting London Theatre & Hotel Carvery Packages mean that you miss the rush hour coming in and going home. And by seeing the show first and having the meal afterwards with plenty to talk about no one will have to struggle to stay awake through the show! And when you get home? There’s no supper to make. Just kick off your shoes and relax. Lovely!
Talk to Andrew our theatre man on 0208 692 1133. Andrew knows all of the theatres intimately so he can pick out the best seats available for your group. What’s more we’ll send you very clear instructions on exactly what to do on the day for a seamless and stress free experience.
Special Offer -
Early Spring on The Kent Coast -
Five Day Dinner, Bed & Breakfast at The Burlington Hotel, Folkestone with an exhilarating programme of sightseeing. Includes two days with Blue Badge Guide, all admissions, two lunches an after dinner talk with TV antiques expert Alison Chapman.
The Burlington Hotel
This is a cracking 3* family run hotel nearing the completion of a total refurbishment which will see it rebranded as a 4* Best Western. The hotel is in the upmarket West End of Folkestone just off the Leas with a pleasant walk along to the beaches, old harbour arm and fish market. It's the hotel that local groups prefer -
There are 60 bedrooms, the housekeeping is immaculate and the staff are genuinely friendly and go all out to ensure your comfort. We have a five day holiday based at this hotel called Sissinghurst & The Cinque Ports (see the SleepOver tab for more details). But for March 2018 we have a special late availability deal with sightseeing suited to the season and as a special feature you'll be joined by TV antiques expert Alison Chapman (Secret Dealers and Dickinson's Real Deal) who will join you after dinner for a talk about her 35 year antiques career. Alison will also bring some very unusual and fascinating antiques for a fun SHOW & TELL. The holiday runs Monday to Friday and is available for the weeks starting 12th & 19th March 2018.
Day One Monday: This is a coach inclusive package. Our coach collects you at pick points to suit your group. En route to Folkestone we have booked a two course lunch with coffee in the mediaeval Pilgrims Hall and time to enjoy the beautiful modern art in the chapels around the shrine at Aylesford Priory on the banks of the River Medway (just off the M20/M2).
If you arrive here for lunch around 1pm you'll be checking in at the Burlington by 4.30pm -
After dinner tonight you'll be joined by TV antiques expert and Kent Business Woman of the Year Alison Chapman for an entertaining talk and unusual antiques SHOW & TELL.
Day Two Tuesday: A top notch Blue Badge Guide from the award winning City & Village Tours team arrives after breakfast for a day out exploring the Romney Marsh, including the marsh churches, Dungeness, a fish & chip lunch at the famous Pilot Inn and a visit to historic and beautiful Rye. In the evening you can add the option of a night at the Leas Cliff Hall, which is a 10 minute flat walk from the hotel.
Tuesday 13 March 2018 Buddy Holly & The Crickets Tribute Night
Tuesday 20 March 2018 You've Got a Friend: James Taylor & Carol King Tribute
Day Three Wednesday: Free day in resort. The coach is on hand to take those who want to into Canterbury for the afternoon with the option to sit with the choir for Choral Evensong at Canterbury Cathedral at 5.30pm, returning to the hotel in time for dinner at 7.30pm.
Day Four Thursday: The Blue Badge Guide returns for a day out along the coast in the opposite direction to Tuesday. This morning we visit the Scramble Experience at the Battle of Britain Memorial (2018 is the Centenary of the Royal Air Force and the 25th Anniversary of the Memorial). At Dover there's a photo stop at the top of the famous White Cliffs and following free time for lunch in the Georgian fishing town of Deal we visit Walmer Castle, the official residence of the Warden of the Cinque Ports and fear not, this is more like a small stately home than a castle so there aren't hundreds of steps! On Thursday evenings there’s a free Jazz night at the Grand Hotel next door to the Burlington.
Day Five Friday: Our week away concludes with an exhilarating safari at Port Lympne Wild Animal Park. This important breeding sanctuary returns endangered species, including black rhinos and gorillas, to the wild.It is beautifully set high on the old Saxon Shore with far reaching views across the Romney Marsh and out to sea. You'll have time to enjoy a tour of the site on the safari trucks, see the gorillas at feeding time, visit the big cats and the little meerkats and buy a light lunch before making tracks for home at 3.00pm.
