Lifestyle holidays

Home of the original martini and the perfect afternoon tea, style icons from Vivienne Westwood to Kate Middleton, and grand architecture from castles to glass skyscrapers, it’s no wonder that England has more than its fair share of luxury experiences and indulgent escapes.  Hire your own fort or stately home for group holidays or escape the rat race on relaxing holidays in your very own treetop canopy suite. Stay ahead of the game with the hottest tickets in town, whether theatre, opera, tennis or rugby, hire a classic car or float above the action in a hot-air balloon. And what’s a holiday without a souvenir or two? From designer flagship stores to Royal Warrant-holding boutiques with a royal seal of approval, England’s shopping scene is second to none.
