The UK’s most popular Cultural Events and Attractions to visit
Visiting the majestic Buckingham Palace in the hope of catching a glimpse of the Queen, taking in an opera at Glyndebourne or attending London Fashion Week, the UK has it all. So when visiting the UK, we are sure you will plan ahead, and book some cultural events as part of your trip.
Things to do and see in London
Throughout the year the United Kingdom hosts some unique and prestigious events, attracting thousands of visitors from across the globe. Whilst London is recognised as the global cultural centre, many other UK cities are renowned for their social and cultural events.
So why do people come to London and what is there to do? Well…it really doesn't matter what your interests are, whether it be fashion, the arts or even rock and pop culture, you can spend forever enjoying what the capital has to offer. Some of REAL's most popular transfers include….
Events at O2
The O2, formerly known as 'The Millennium Dome', was built on a meander of the river Thames close to London's Greenwich Park. It has been sponsored and utilised by O2 as an events venue for some truly spectacular shows, ranging from Polo to Rock, from boxing to stand-up comedians, from tennis to popular music bands – the O2 has done it all!
The variety of entertainment on offer at the O2 caters for everyone's tastes so ensure the O2 is a 'must' on your itinerary of things to do when visiting London. Whilst you are there visit one of the many restaurants themed on a traditional indoor street scene!
Take a look at the latest events at the 02 here.
Events at the London ExCel
The ExCel hosts a different style of event to the O2, consisting of exhibitions, conferences and leisure expos. These include the famous London Boat show, the World Travel Market (WTM) and the Grand Designs show [can we please link]. So whether you are travelling to the ExCel to attend one of the many conferences or hosting or visiting an exhibition, book your car transfer with REAL and we will ensure that you arrive on time, safely and in comfort.

London Fashion Week
Held twice a year in London, London Fashion Week, is a busy time of the year as the world of fashion descends en-masse to the capital for shows, parties and meetings. Everyone requires shuttling between London's airports and the multitude of catwalk events. So whether you need an 'as directed' service, where your driver will stay with you throughout the day, or a luxury transfer to or from the event, contact REAL today, and we will take care of both you and your clients' transfer needs.

Day trip to Buckingham Palace & Horse Guards Parade
Many tourists coming to London put visiting Buckingham Palace at the top of their 'bucket' list, hoping to catch a glimpse of The Queen performing her royal duties. We even find some of our clients choose to be taken to Buckingham Palace directly from Heathrow Airport before being transferred to their accommodation in central London. However, if you would prefer a half-day or a full-day private car excursion around London then REAL can accommodate all your requirements.
Things to do outside of London
Obviously the country has much to offer outside of London, so take a look at our top selections and see if we can tempt you away from The City and into the country.
Farnborough Air show
A real highlight for all enthusiasts of aircraft, and a truly fantastic family day out with lots to do for all who go. When visiting the UK be sure to take this in and experience some fantastic aerial spectacles.

The opera at Glyndebourne has been taking place for nearly 100 years is a not to be missed event. The country house is set in the rolling South Downs and is only about an hour and a half from Heathrow.

Why else would you need a private car service?
REAL is London's fastest growing, innovative and dynamic private car service and has fast established itself as the premier transfer company for families wanting to book a car service to or from the airport. However, we don't just specialise in airport or port transfers. Working in partnership with some of the UK's leading companies this year has seen REAL delivering a high level of trusted and reliable car services for overseas and UK based students, supporting insurance companies with medical transfers and supplying 'as directed' transfers to private clients and international businesses based in London. Additionally over the last year we have started working with a number of sport and TV event companies providing professional, discreet and luxury transfers to their high profile sport stars, film stars and their other clients attending various film and sporting events.
