NB - We will send through a full information file on booking. Maclise Road is an easy walk to Olympia Tube (District Line) in two minutes, Shepherds Bush Tube (Central Line) in 7-8 minutes, and Hammersmith on the Piccadilly Line in 7-8 minutes. Central London is no further than 25 minutes away by these routes. There are also regular buses to many different destinations from the bus stop outside Olympia Exhibition Hall (three minutes walk). You can use the popular Boris Bikes –pick up and drop off (there is a cycle park the other side of Olympia train station nearby. You just need to open an account with them online, it is easy. It is also quite easy to walk to High Street Kensington and Holland Park (about 15 minutes) and from there London is your oyster. Speaking of oysters, don't forget to buy an Oyster card, as it makes tube and train rides much cheaper (you can buy them at Tube stations). More information at www.oystercard.com. And of course there are the splendid Black London taxi cabs, which can be hailed from almost anywhere,
and also we can recommend slightly cheaper local taxi firms.

Knightsbridge is the place to go (www.mandarinoriental.com/london/spa)

* London is one of the arts' capitals of the world - see www.visitlondon.com for everything

* A day in the famous university town of Oxford (50mins on M40) among its honey-coloured

legendary colleges and stroll along the river (www.visitoxfordandoxfordshire.com)
* To see the most beautiful countryside in England go to the Cotswolds in Oxfordshire and
Gloucestershire (about 1.5hrs on M40). It is the classic 'shires' of JRR Tolkein's imagination in
