THIS SPECIALLY PRICED FULL PACKAGE INCLUDES:

FLY TRANSATLANTIC OVERNIGHT to LONDON, ENGLAND: Departure Fridays between August 23 to October 25, 2019, from New York City (JFK) or Newark (EWR), USA. Arrive Saturday morning at your destination airport in London, UK. London guests self-transfer by public transportation or pre-arranged taxi service to your London apartment at the traffic-free St. Katharine's Marina on the north side of the Thames or at a stylish, convenient apartment in the vibrant Bermondsey neighborhood just south of the Tower Bridge. Begin your apartment occupancy Saturday afternoon. COTSWOLDS guests will collect their rental cars at the airport and drive (approximately 2 hours) northwest to the beautiful rural Cotswolds region of England. Special arrangements will be made for Cotswolds guests who do not wish to drive — please inquire.

LODGINGS: 7 nights lodging in a central London vacation apartment near the Tower of London and the Tower Bridge, or at a comfortable country cottage in a charming Cotswolds village or town. All lodgings are close to stores, services, restaurants, and public transportation. You will be met and introduced to your lodging, its workings, and your neighborhood or village/town by the lodging's concierge, manager or representative of the owner.

TRANSPORT PASSES FOR LONDON GUESTS: Home At First's London guests receive London Transport Passes for public transportation throughout London (all 9 fare zones!) on the London Underground, the red buses of London Transport, on the Docklands Light Railway, on certain railway lines serving Greater London, and on certain Thames River passenger boats that depart from St. Katharine's Pier and the neighboring Tower Pier.

GROUND TRANSPORT FOR COTSWOLDS GUESTS: Most Home At First's Cotswolds guests will have rental cars for one week's use. Pick-up and return of the rental cars will be at the same airport location. Extended rental periods and/or drop-off at a different location is available at extra cost. Those Cotswolds guests wishing to travel by public transportation will have a choice of various railpasses (i.e. railpasses with different coverage areas and classes of service) to replace the built-in Car Rental that is standard for our Cotswolds program.

EXCLUSIVE ACTIVITY GUIDE: Guests to London and the Cotswolds receive Home At First's exclusive "London Activities Guide" or "England Activities Guide" keyed for your exploration of London and throughout parts of England & Wales. Included are suggestions for touring, activities, restaurants, shopping, historic sites, museums, galleries, theatres, pubs, parks, gardens, castles, cathedrals, churches, villages, towns, cities, scenic boat trips, and scenic rail journeys.

RETURN TRANSATLANTIC FLIGHT 8 DAYS LATER: Daytime return flight from London, UK, back to New York City (JFK) or Newark (EWR), USA, Saturday after 7 days & 7 nights lodging in your London vacation apartment or your Cotswolds vacation cottage.
