get your finger back on the pulse

Feel the need for a city fix?  I’ve got good news – South West Trains have an incredible special offer on at the mo: off-peak, day returns to a long list of places throughout the UK, including London Town, for just £15 adults and £5 kids (yes, you did read that correctly), until the end of April. You have to book your ticket by midnight the day before you want to travel, either in person or online, through South West Trains.

Just a taster for what’s new in town….
