“Fantastic day - well worth it!”

Written on: 20/09/2017 by 493Todd (1 review written)

Loved it! I went while the movies were being made, so to see what they've now done with the space is amazing. The model of Hogwarts is incredible, and Platform 9 and 3/4 is very cool. Go with a full pocket; the gift shops are as big as the attraction!… Read Full Review

“Great Experience, Entertainment Could Be Better”

Written on: 20/09/2017 by LawrenceCormier (1 review written)

We never tire of cruising the Thames and it really is magical at night. Everything went smoothly, the food was great and the service was perfect. However, while the singer was friendly, the entertainment was very loud and 'Butlins' style with lots of audience participation. Many enjoyed this, but we would have preferred more gentle background singing to go with the excellent dining experience. We had a nice evening but the intrusive entertainment took the shine off the evening for us… Read Full Review

“Brilliant day”

Written on: 19/09/2017 by soCombs1986 (1 review written)

We had paid for the media package and was given a neck band to wear but was not told it contained a USB stick that should be inserted into each car to obtain a video of of the car ride however the Ferrari instructor did not do this and we were not aware until getting into the second car. By then it was too late and we lost the experience. Apart from this the day was really good . With it the day would have been fantastic… Read Full Review

“Morse Tour”

Written on: 19/09/2017 by SatisfiedCouple (1 review written)

We had a lovely afternoon wandering around the streets of Oxford seeing a lot of the places frequented by Morse, Lewis and Endeavour. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable about the character's and the locations and it was a very informative and enjoyable experience. I would certainly recommend it to anyone interested in the programmes and it would also work for people who want to know about the different colleges and their history. Comfortable shoes are a must as you wonder around some o… Read Full Review

“Frustrating organisation”

Written on: 19/09/2017

Good points -the driving instructors were very nice. The pre-information was quite intimidating but I thought that as it was meant to be a fun experience they will make sure that I have a fun day. Unfortunately, on the day it felt that their main aim was not for me to have a nice day but for them to make as much money as they could. The organisation during the day was poor and frustrating. I was with my family but could not spend time with them as I had to spend so much time in queues. … Read Full Review

“Wham Bam Thank you Ma am”

Written on: 19/09/2017 by Puckett493 (1 review written)

a tad disappointing - 6 of us in a very small room - (just as well we were all friendly)! no seating standing only - door to bar was open and very nosiy and couldn't hear our rather lovely french guide - even he apologised for the noise - lovely idea the history of gin - ambience elsewhere looked fab - felt rushed and very conveyor belt - the only warm feeling of the experience was the Gin!… Read Full Review

“Fantastic experience ”

Written on: 18/09/2017 by Summerjay (1 review written)

I had a great time on the rowing experience, I would highly recommend it, there was people of mixed ages and abilities. I do gig rowing so it was an experience for me to row with two oars and in a smaller boat, at the same time being taught by an Olympic medal winner. It was organised well and will be booking another experience day in the future… Read Full Review

“A Great Gift for a 'Big Birthday'”

Written on: 18/09/2017 by Quintenl490 (1 review written)

We decided to take the two experiences separately. In June we enjoyed a delightful evening cruise down the Thames with an excellent dinner, an amusing entertainer and even some dancing! In September we soared to the top of The Shard on a beautiful Summer's day for a fantastic view of London and a glass of champagne. Both events were very well organised and made two great days out… Read Full Review

“Such a relaxing day!!”

Written on: 18/09/2017 by eoMartinez119 (1 review written)

Took a while to book the experience (you have to phone up and wait in a queue) but it was a shame so worth it. Has such a relaxing day at the spa. Spent most of the afternoon in the relaxation room - which was so so nice, with dimmed lighting, loungers, chilled music, and complementary teas. The treatments were also fab - tried the facial, which didn't aggregate my sensitive skin, and then bamboo leg message. The staff were SO FRIENDLY, pleasant, and genuinely seemed happy to help at all times… Read Full Review

“Breath taking views and the staff were amazing”

Written on: 17/09/2017 by Usama_taseer (1 review written)

So I had this voucher for my anniversary from the wife and just couldn't be bothered activating it. However this was on of the best experiences I've ever done in my life. I believe everything built this is as a great experience such as the location the staff and the weather. The best part was I called up a 2 weeks in advance to book my lesson and they let me upgrade at the Aero Club and it was reasonably priced. I would definitely recommend this experience if you or your partner like to capture… Read Full Review

“Which Whisky ”

Written on: 17/09/2017 by H6rpr (1 review written)

Venue in York was perfect. The delivery and presentation of The Whisky Lounge host was clear, amusing and informative. The quantity of Whisky provided for the sampling was perfectly adequate. Sadly my wife who was my plus one still doesn't like the water of life. Never mind more for me. I would happily recommend this event and will be buying the same event for my best friend's birthday in the near future… Read Full Review

“Great day out”

Written on: 17/09/2017 by Redrob1n (1 review written)

Very enjoyable experience getting to drive cars you would normally dream about driving. Brilliant instructors and friendly service from all the staff and very well organised. Track was very good the only downside perhaps is you only get two laps in each car which lasts about 5 minutes and lots of time waiting between each drive. This time I drove Porsche, Ferrari and Lamborghini. Would definitely do this experience again choosing different cars next time… Read Full Review
