Travel to London First Class on the new Azuma trains

Azuma Trains

They’ve finally arrived! Azuma is the biggest revolution of the East Coast mainline service in more than 30 years and you can check it out for yourself because we’re giving away First Class travel to London. Inspired by bullet train technology and kitted out with all the mod cons, you can sit back in your reclining seats as you surf the web using the free wifi and charge your devices from your personal plug socket.

Spend a luxurious night in Conrad St James

The Conrad St James couldn’t be better placed. Big Ben, Buckingham Palace and Westminster are all on its doorstep, so you can take the kids to see London’s most iconic attractions. But don’t be surprised if you want to stay in and enjoy the hotel. Every oh-so-luxurious room has a bathtub, a walk-in shower and a Nespresso coffee machine, with free wifi throughout, so you can share all those London snaps.

See sharks, stingrays and clownfish up close


The kids will absolutely love this! You’ll bag a family pass to the SEA LIFE London Aquarium, one of the most exciting attractions in the capital. You can walk through their underwater tunnel while sharks swim all around you, peer into tanks full of stingrays and stroke starfish in their rockpools. Don’t miss the new Coral Kingdom, a 40-foot tank where you’ll find the largest coral reef in the UK and meet the wonderful clownfish that inspired the film Finding Nemo.

Snaffle burgers and freak shakes at an all-American diner


When it comes to eating out with the kids, Maxwell’s Bar & Grill in Covent Garden is the place to go. They have all the little ones’ favourites, with loaded burgers, proper mac ’n’ cheese and sticky barbecue chicken – but it’s not just the kids that will love it here. Treat yourself to a plate of sizzling fajitas or keep it clean with a halloumi and courgette salad. Afterwards, it’s freak shakes all round – try the Oreo cookie or salted caramel.
