Wondering what we’re up to? Here’s a list of our January highlights that are currently in the mix. We’ll be updating as our itinerary increases, so stay tuned for ideas and inspiration.
Canterbury, England: Lovely historic cathedral city in the district of Kent in South East England.
London Boat Show: Taking place from January 4-12 at the ExCel London. Excellent opportunity to be informed of the best boats, boating gear and products on the market, or just to have a look around. With daily activities, the show can be a trip for just you or the whole family. More info on the Boat Show’s official site.
Telegraph Cruise Show: Taking place on the weekend of January 10-12, also at the ExCel London. Whether you’re completely new to cruising or a luxe-veteran of the seas, there’s something for everyone. Plenty of fantastic cruise lines will be in attendance with exhibitions, including Royal Caribbean International, Celebrity, Viking, Princess, P&O and many many more. The event will also have cruise entertainment, destinations, food and wine exhibitions — the buzz is that it’s going to be a all-around informative and entertaining sensory spectacle for imaginations and travel planners. Get the full scoop from the Telegraph’s cruise show page.
Brighton, England: Seeking a refresh in beautiful Brighton, on the southern coast of England directly south of London. Horseback riding on the beach followed by spa treatments.
Saint-Germain-en-Laye, France: Retreat to the lovely ‘mini-Paris’ town of Saint-Germain-en-Laye, just outside of Paris.The Palace of Versailles and its parks will be on the itinerary.
Galvin at Windows: Dinner at a Michelin-starred restaurant and bar on Park Lane in the heart of Mayfair. Looking forward to fantastic views of The City, The Shard, Hyde Park and Buckingham Palace and anticipating excellent French haute cuisine. See why we’re interested on Galvin’s site.
Hampton Court Palace: One of our favorite haunts in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames, the grand Historic Royal Palace most famous for the gallivants of King Henry VIII. Surrounded by acres of beautiful parkland, this grand and magnificent palace somehow never gets old… The ice rink in front of the grand entrance is open until the January 12.
Dinner by Heston Blumenthal: In the Mandarin Oriental Hotel on Hyde Park. Known for its original reinventions of historic British cuisine as well as its light and elegant ambiance, not to mention a stunning location. We’re intrigued by the Earl Grey Tea cured Salmon and Spiced Pigeon, but expect to encounter a few historical ‘surprises’ of British cuisine. Have a look at Dinner by Heston’s menu.
