LIB TRIP

Book Now2.png

Friday, December 28th

  • Arrive in London Friday morning after an overnight flight (we recommend flying into Heathrow because Gatwick will add about an hour ride costing around $130). Make your way from the airport to the hotel

NOTE: the airport is a great place to get a SIM card for your cell phone so you can use data while in the U.K. We all picked up unlimited plans for about $50 last year so we could communicate with people on the trip and loved ones/friends back home.

Saturday, December 29th PREMIER LEAGUE MATCH DAY!!!

  • Start off your morning with a hearty English breakfast in the hotel.
  • Transfer to Crystal Palace with your group and soak up the pre-game atmosphere before your first away match.
  • Watch CRYSTAL PALACE V CHELSEA play live at Selhurst Park, KO 3 PM* (TBC)
  • After the match we’ll continue to take in the match day atmosphere if you’d like otherwise the rest of the evening is free for you to enjoy

Sunday, December 30th

  • Relax and enjoy your traditional English breakfast while reading the English newspapers and the reviews of yesterday’s match.
