It isn't even Halloween, and the New Year's Eve frenzy has begun. Where will you spend it, and with whom?
Lucky for you, Visitlondon.com is giving away a posh, one-week New Year's Eve vacation for two. Complimentary round-trip travel, airport transfers, and six fabulous nights in a luxurious, private one-bedroom apartment at Cheval Residences in London could be yours. So could: tickets to the -5 degrees Icebar followed by dinner in the warm and cozy belowzero restaurant and lounge; an evening at the historic Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club in Soho; a guided tour of Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre and a visit to the Shakespeare’s Globe Exhibition, followed by afternoon tea in the Brasserie, overlooking the Thames; a special tour of the Tate Modern, followed by a restaurant meal on the 7th floor, overlooking St. Paul’s Cathedral and the City of London; and a behind-the-scenes tour of the new Wembley Stadium, home to soccer and rock concerts. Plus, you'll receive London Passes that will give you free admission to over 55 top London attractions. Gawk at the crown jewels at the Tower of London, visit St. Paul’s Cathedral where Prince Charles and Princess Diana were married, or float past thousands of years of history aboard a Thames River Cruise.
The best part? A day trip to Paris with Eurostar, which takes only two hours and 15 minutes! Since Paris is the fashion capital of the world, sashay on over to the Ideal History of Contemporary Fashion Exhibit (Part 2) at Les Arts Décoratifs. When you return to St. Pancras, celebrate with complimentary bubbly at The Champagne Bar.
Come midnight on the 3lst, a thrilling fireworks spectacle over London’s greatest monuments rings in the New Year. Dazzling colors light up the sky as if it were the 4th of July. Now, that's the way to kick off 2011.
Already booked for New Year's? No problem. Opt for the $5,000 credit, which may be used to buy anything that is available for purchase on, or via, visitlondon.com, including air from the U.S.A. or Canada to London and hotel accommodations in London. Start the party and enter.
