Transport to the Hotels - Under normal circumstances you would arrive at the hotel using your own transport. If you require a lift from the airport, train station or coach station arrangements can be made to pick you up from selected stations at specific time slots, if we can. Please check when booking as they will be allocated on a first come first served basis. Alternatively, we can help arrange a taxi for you. The fare will be payable to the taxi driver at the time but we can co-ordinate this so that we can group people together where possible providing you advise us of your expected arrival times to enable it to be as cost effective as possible.

Transport to Painting Locations - When painting on location, we will be able to take some people in either the tutor’s car or one of our cars. It may be necessary for you to use your own car and depending on the size and make-up of the group this could be done on a rotation basis. When booking please read the notes on the “Travel Arrangements” and complete the booking form accordingly, so we can ensure all guests transport requirements are catered for. If you do not have transport or do not drive then there will be space for you in one of our cars.
