Celebrating 60 Years of NAFAS, London 2019

NAFAS Diamond Anniversary London 2019

 

ECT has enjoyed a long association with NAFAS and we are delighted to have been chosen as the preferred travel partner for the Society's Diamond Anniversary celebrations in London in August 2019.


We have negotiated special rates at two London hotels and can offer a variety of travel options, ranging from simply booking the hotel and arranging transport to and from the Floral Art and Design Show at the Business Design Centre and the Diamond Dinner at Grosvenor House Hotel, to devising an unforgettable four night London experience featuring private floral demonstrations and delicious afternoon teas.  So, whether you're planning to attend the celebrations alone, in the company of a few friends or your entire NAFAS group, we have a package to suit.

Please note the Floral Art and Design Show preview evening is on Wednesday 7th August  8pm - 10pm 

The show continues from  Thursday 8th - Saturday 10th August. 

 

5*Threadneedles Hotel - in the heart of the City

Threadneedles Hotel

This 5* boutique hotel is an unexpected find in the heart of London's financial district. Set in a former Victorian bank, it blends history with distinctly contemporary chic. The original wooden counter is now a glamorous champagne and oyster bar for example, while the former banking hall has been turned into a lounge where guests can take afternoon tea, or meet for a cocktail beneath the glass domed roof. You will want to linger here - not least to try out the various dining options, which range from an informal meal in the bar or lounge to a grand feast in Marco Pierre White's Wheeler's of St James Oyster Bar & Grill Room - but with St Paul's Cathedral, Tate Modern and Shakespeare's Globe all within 15 minutes walk of the front door, Threadneedles is also perfectly placed for sightseeing.

 4*Crowne Plaza Hotel Kings Cross

Crown Plaza Hotel London

This 4* hotel, conveniently close to the Floral Art and Design show, boasts contemporary bedrooms, a Fitness Centre complete with swimming pool, sauna and steam room, a spa and two on site restaurants. Mussel-lovers can indulge at Belgo, the well-known Belgian restaurant specialising in rope-grown, sustainable mussels served with frites and mayonnaise, while Bloom & Bar offers delicious salads and pastas in a cosy, Bloomsbury-inspired setting.

When it comes to easy, comfortable and affordable group travel, you can’t beat the coach. Here are some reasons why:

. It’s convenient: your group can select up to three local pick up and return points.

. It’s comfortable: our coaches are all air-conditioned and have plenty of leg room.

. It’s guaranteed: when you book your coach, you know it will arrive on time and that everyone will get a seat.

. It’s private: your coach is for your group only.

. It’s friendly; you travel with people you know and who share your interests.

. It’s direct: we deliver you to the door so there are no expensive taxi transfers or struggles with public transport.

. It’s not just for the journey: once you’ve arrived, we provide private coach transfer to and from every destination on the itinerary.

. It’s affordable: group coach travel is the cheapest way to travel. The larger the group, the lower the price

. It’s totally stress free: we take care of all the logistics, so all you have to do is sit back and enjoy the journey

Our coach tours are designed for groups of 25+, but that doesn’t mean you have to all come from one club or society. Why not make up the numbers by joining with smaller groups from other clubs in the local area?

Groups of 25+  

We can arrange:

  • Return coach travel to London
  • Two to four night’s accommodation at Threadneedles Hotel,  or the Crowne Plaza Hotel Kings Cross
