We'll attend the two day Kensington Dollshouse Festival, see Queen Mary's Dollshouse at Windsor Castle after arriving on the 9th of May at Heathrow Airport.
Includes: Admissions to the above plus Hever and Leeds Castles - both lovely historic places with lovely gardens. Manor Houses filled with fabulous art, tapestries, porcelain, incredible furniture,
some of it from the 13th, 14th and 15th centuries, as well as their award winning gardens! We'll visit Kristen Baybars' iconic mini shop and I'll take a group to Portobello Road to take in
its silver stalls, art, collectibles and junque!!! Covent Garden, too - Pollock's, its toy shop is wonderful!! There will be free time to visit Harrod's famous department store as well as Victoria & Albert
Museum across the street directly from our London Hotel!
INCLUDED: Heathrow Airport Meet and Greet, Private Coach, Tickets to the Kensington Show for 2 days, Breakfast & Dinner ~ 4 dinners at nearby restaurants, the rest at our hotels. We are in London 3 nights, Tunbridge Wells 2 nights and
Crowne Plaza Heathrow the last night, as we don't want to have to worry about getting out of London's morning rush hour traffic. I am mailing out the flyer as well as the Reservation Form this weekend.
We need $500 now per person to hold our hotels and sights, as it's a lovely time of the year to be in England!!
We're taking $500 deposits now!
Not included: Airfare to and from London Heathrow Airport. Your travel agent can use your travel points and figure out direct flights to Heathrow.
Arrival time there MUST be between 6:30 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. on morning of May 9th, 2019.
We'll be met and taken to board our private coach and head off to Windsor Castle & Queen Mary's Dollshouse. I'll be holding down tables at a nearby pub so you can watch a short parade of guards pass by on their way to have a
changing of the guard. Or, you can have a relaxing cup of tea and some of their fabulous pastries.
2019 Rhine River Christmas Market Cruise
We're headed to a wonderful Christmas Markets along the Rhine in 2019 and hope you will join us. Departure is December 3, 2019 - all cabins are double occupancy with a couple of singles, so hop to it, kids!! You will be visiting iconic Christmas Markets in the Netherlands, Germany, a fairy tale village in France, ending up in Switzerland where we can visit that fabulous three story museum of toys, teddies, dolls and MINIATURES. They have
a lovely shop..... and one of the major Christmas Markets is right across the street! Or if your traveling friend is not a miniaturist, they can always sample wine or tea at the museum's tea room.
We follow Grand Circle's itinerary but believe me, we have lots of mini fun - both onboard and on land...... in Cologne, we will visit a private collection of antique dollshouses that will knock your socks off!
Dealers and crafters who sign up should bring their wares and participate in the onboard mini miniatures show! I've even had the director of the museum buy some of our vendor/passengers
miniatures for the museum'[s shop in Basel! Just ask Carl Bronsdon, Sue Thwaite, and Josephine Meyer & others!
Click here to read and print out the 4 page brochure. You'll find the 800 number to call to make your reservation, but be sure to also give them Molly Cromwell's code for our Group: G19-20068, and the name of
our cruise - the Rhine River Christmas Markets. For best choice of deck and cabin, make your deposit now! The Grand Circle Cruise Lines 800 number is listed on the brochure, as is my phone number in Virginia.
Gather some of your club members or BFF and join me, we have a rip roaring good time. All meals included. Book GCCL airlines suggested and you will be met at Amsterdam Schipol Airport, or you can book your own, but
will have to make your own way to embark the ship, both arriving and departing. Wine and sodas are included with meals. Even DH's love this cruise!!
Our optional workshop while cruising will be taught by Gayle Baillargeon from Canada. A 1/4" project, easier to get home with, is a copy of an antique piece - a store complete with counter,
shelves and drawers. We'll also have a Santa exchange as well as local artisans coming to visit us when the ship is docked.
