The Christmas season brings with it a few distinctive features: colder weather, festive storefronts, winter-themed drinks, and the infectious holiday spirit. Christmas is the season of giving and of spending time with loved ones.
Here at MET Coaches, we’re full of the festive spirit and know you need reliable and comfortable transportation for yourself and your guests on one the busiest season of the year. This Christmas, we will be providing the best transportation experience for your Christmas day out.
Christmas school trips – Places like the Museum of London and Museum of London Docklands have multiple winter workshops and activities like visiting Santa in his Grotto, experiencing a Victorian Frost Fair, and performances of A Christmas Carol. A visit to the Geffry Museum to see how Christmas has been celebrated in previous centuries makes for a fun and educational class trip.
Christmas corporate hospitality events – our drivers can take you to your next corporate hospitality event, networking event, or team building exercise in our service areas. For those organising a corporate event or hospitality trip around London or Hertfordshire, we can provide your guests with transport from a chosen location to the venue. We even offer airport transfer services to and from London’s airports for guests coming in for corporate events and conferences.
Individuals – planning large group trips like family reunions can be a complicated task during the busy festive season. Alleviate some of the stress of planning by organising reliable minibus or coach hire transport. Whether it’s a winter wedding or the yearly family Christmas holiday, MET is available and ready to get you and your group there together and on time.
London, Hertfordshire, Berkshire and other areas we service always host a large variety of Christmas events ideal for families, team social trips and corporate hospitality events. For those stuck for fun and quirky ideas, consider our list of Christmas-related activities.
Winter Wonderland – Head to Hyde Park in Central London for the annual Winter Wonderland event from mid-November to early January. There are numerous attractions, rides and shows for families and people of all ages to enjoy. Make sure you try your hand (or foot) at ice skating and meet Santa Claus and his elves!
Christmas-themed corporate events — What better time is there to bond with your clients than during the Christmas season? Plan a day trip to your chosen destination for hours of fun and the friendliest journey ever. If you’re at a loss of ideas, try ice skating, bowling, laser tag or a Christmas themed arts & craft class like an ice sculpture carving workshop accompanied by a delicious meal.
Christmas markets – London isn’t the only city to hold spectacular Christmas markets in Britain. Gather your friends and family and head north to check out Christmas markets in other cities such as Manchester, Liverpool and Birmingham. Alternatively, visit coastal cities like Southend-on-Sea or Brighton for a seaside take on a traditional Christmas market.
Christmas sleepover – on 15 and 16 December the British Museum invites families and members of their Young Friends group to a sleepover at the museum. The night features craft workshops, activities, and stories about Christmas’ origins and how it has been celebrated throughout various time periods. Guests will spend the night in the Ancient Egypt gallery and enjoy mince pies, hot chocolate, and a festive breakfast before going through an exhibit to end their stay.
Watch the Peter Pan Cup – This Christmas Day swim in Hyde Park has been a yearly traditional since 1864, and it became known as the Peter Pan Cup in 1904 when Peter Pan creator J.M. Barrie donated the first official cup. On Christmas morning, members of the Serpentine Swimming Club swim 100 yards in the 4ºC water of Serpentine Lake, making for a chilly but riveting start to the day for swimmers and spectators alike.
At MET Coaches, we love the Christmas season and wants to help make your Christmas special too. Our seats are comfortable, the aisles are spacious, and our drivers are very friendly – all to ensure you have the best memories of your day with us.
