Transport & Transfers

Transport in the UK

Transport to the Hotels - Under normal circumstances you would arrive at the hotel using your own transport. If you require onward transport to the hotel from the airport, train station or coach station arrangements can be made to pick you up. Please check details of available pick-up & drop-off times when booking. On occasions we can pick you up but the rest of the time we can help arrange a taxi for you. In most cases the fare will be payable to the taxi driver at the time. We will co-ordinate your journey where we can so that we can group people together if possible to enable it to be cost effective for you, providing you advise us of your expected arrival/departure times in advance.

Transport to Painting Locations - When painting on location, we will be able to take some people in either the tutor’s car or one of our cars. It may be necessary for you to use your own car and depending on the size and make-up of the group this could be done on a rotation basis. When booking please read the notes on the “Travel Arrangements” and complete the booking form accordingly, so we can ensure all guests transport requirements are catered for. If you do not have transport or do not drive then there will be space for you in one of our cars.
