Tickets for the Grand National still in demand …


The Grand National is still in great demand from both novices  and  race enthusiasts alike. Famous for its jumps, Aintree provides its horses and jockeys with inspirationaly named obstacles to negotiate including The Chair and Beecher’s Brook, adding to the drama and suspense filled atmosphere!  Weekends which include a ticket for The Grand National and an overnight stay at a nearby  3* hotel are available from £145pp

Luxury Black Tie London Weekend goes down a storm



“We had a super weekend in London, enjoyed by all. We had a very relaxing journey to Kings X but the return train was very busy and not so comfortable – older rolling stock.
The hotel – the Cavendish – Jermyn St, was excellent – we would thoroughly recommend it for style, service and location.
Friday evening we had a superb dinner in the Fountain Restaurant at Fortnum and Masons directly across the Jermyn Street from the hotel. The multi choice menu offered similar dishes to that of the hotel at £25.00 including a half bottle of wine per person. Again, it has our recommendation.
The ‘Gentleman’s Outfitters in Jermyn St all had deep cut sales so were well patronised by the group.
Billy Elliot was very good although the seats were iffy. Because we were in the front row of the gods there was a substantial brass rail in front of us all. Nonetheless it was an enjoyable experience, and the theatre was close enough to walk from the Cavendish.
Then the RITZ, what can one say. A very expensive evening but not to be missed. Service, food and style is truly 5*. We will have it on our itinerary for every group visit to London.
All in all a great weekend. Thanks for all your help Mote Weekends. Will speak to you about our next trip soon. Alistair
