Truly English Escapes

Sometimes only the very best will do, and luxury escapes worthy of a King or Queen are never far away when you’re in England. Awake within your opulent hotel room before being pampered from head to toe in a tranquil spa. Participate in quintessentially English activities such as horse-riding along a country path, cruising along the country lanes in a hired sports car before taking supper at a Michelin starred restaurant or designer shopping in London’s Piccadilly. It will be hard to go back to normal life once you've had a taste of the good life here.
