Welcome to Issue 295 | 18th September 2019


As Downton Abbey fever is guaranteed to return with this Friday’s launch of the eagerly anticipated new film, strike while the iron is hot by offering your clients the fiction into fact On Location tour referred to in my top story.

In my second story, you’ll enjoy the short video of HRH The Duchess of Cambridge opening the new garden she’s co-deigned at the flagship RHS Garden at Wisley and for London Heathrow arrivals, my Windsor Alternative will get a big thumbs up from customers who want to get their UK tour off to a better and more interesting start.

The 14th century cliffside village of Clovelly is a must for any Doc Martin/Poldark itinerary heading into Dover and Cornwall and Portmeirion, Wedgwood and Spode and other internationally renowned names feature in a shop ‘n’ ship trip to the World Capital of Ceramics, aka Stoke on Trent.

Finally, Castles and Cathedrals is a new countryside and city tour that I’ve customised for a cruise sailing from Southampton.  It works equally well for Dover arrivals and departures.


Downton Abbey, The Movie

Being released in the USA on Friday 20th September, let’s talk about a 2-night package that can be worked into an On Location pre/post cruise extension or a customised tour. Interest is guaranteed to be rekindled among its old (and many new) fans.  Send me an email and let’s start exploring ways we can convert the film’s popularity into valuable dollars. Read More


The Duchess of Cambridge at Wisley

On 10th September HRH The Duchess of Cambridge opened The Back to Nature Garden at the RHS Garden Wisley.  Inspired by the gardens co-designed by The Duchess at RHS Chelsea and RHS Hampton Court Palace, it includes features from the original RHS Chelsea and Hampton Court gardens.  See more here › gardens › wisley › Articles › rhs-back-to-nature-.


The Windsor Alternative

Avoid the Monday-Friday London-bound mobile car park and hotel bedrooms not ready until 2pm.  Head west to Windsor and visit the Castle, see the Changing of the Guard and take a hop on hop off open top bus tour or River Thames cruise before checking into a Windsor hotel.  Fast/frequent trains then give you a full day in London.

A Glimpse into History

When did you last visit a 14thCentury working fishing village situated on a 400-foot cliff that ooze’s history, celebrating its past and its natural resources with irresistible events throughout the year? This is not a visitor attraction but a real village that allows you to experience Devon 300 years ago. “Welcome to a Different World” Clovelly in North Devon.


Portmeirion In The World Capital Of Ceramics

With the four Great British Brands of Portmeirion, Spode, Royal Worcester and Pimpernel in one store, a visit to one of Portmeirion’s factory shops in Stoke-on-Trent is a must! They all offer wonderful gifts and everything you need for the dinner table.
