ROYAL LONDON JUBILEE PACKAGE
To start our Platinum Jubilee theme, and taking inspiration from Her Majesty’s Jubilee celebrations, we invite you to draw your own inspiration from our 4 star semi-private “Royal London Jubilee” package.
This is a package not designed for the Jubilee holiday weekend itself but for travel over a wider period to give more flexibility. It can be fully customised to suit. If you do have clients wishing to travel for the Jubilee Weekend specifically just let us know and we’ll prepare a bespoke package for them with pleasure.
PLANT A TREE FOR THE JUBILEE
In keeping with the spirit of The Queen’s Green Canopy Tree Planting initiative and to allow your clients to also be part of the celebrations, ASA will pledge to plant a tree for each person booked on this package through our partnership with “Trees For Life” – a rewilding organisation set in the highlands of Scotland.
