Big 2018 Events You Need to Hire a Chauffeur for

27 Dec 2017

Getting around London is never easy, especially when you want to attend a major event. By far the easiest way to enjoy big events in the city is by booking a private chauffeur in a prestige car, who can navigate the best routes and take you there in comfort, style and class.

Chinese New Year – 18th Feb

London’s Chinatown knows how to celebrate Chinese New Year in style, but being located right in the very heart of the West End makes it difficult to reach in your own car, whilst tubes and buses are often packed and chaotic. A personal chauffeur can drive you to the heart of Chinatown.

St Patrick’s Day – 17th March

Just a month later and it’s time to celebrate all things Irish. St Patrick’s Day is celebrated with fervour in every corner of London, but for many, the parade and live shows in Trafalgar Square is where it’s at. Booking a driver means you can enjoy a drop (or more) of the Black Stuff responsibly and arrive home in comfort.

London Marathon – 22nd April

If you’re going to try and see a friend or loved who has entered the London Marathon then you’ll want to ensure you get a viewing place in the best spot. Many roads in London are closed on the day of the marathon but luckily a personal chauffeur will know exactly where they can and can’t drive and may also know a good spot to get to a great view.

FA Cup Final – 19th May

We may not know who is in the final yet, but anyone who has tried to park at Wembley or get public transport there will know how much this can add stress to the big day. A private driver can take you to and from Wembley so you can arrive in comfort to catch the action.

Royal Ascot 19th – 23rd June

Any regular to the races knows that there’s no finer way to arrive at Ascot than in a chauffeur-driven, prestige car.

Pride March – Early July

The exact date for the Pride March in London hasn’t yet bee released but if you’re planning on going you’ll need to book your chauffeur in advance as soon as you know the date. And that’s because 1 million people descend on Central London on that day, causing tubes and buses to heave. Have your chauffeur drive you to the start near Regent Street so you can walk down following the parade. Your private driver can then meet you south of Whitehall at the end.

Notting Hill Carnival – August Bank Holiday weekend

London’s most exciting street carnival and one with over 40 years of history, Notting Hill Carnival is always a hit. This celebration of all things British-West Indian takes place in one of London’s prettiest neighbourhoods. Arriving with a personal chauffeur will make your life a lot easier.

Event or special occasion car hire in London is an increasingly popular way to travel. Chauffeur-driven cars take out the stress, hassle and inconvenience that comes with all other forms of transport. London-based firms such as Smart City Prestige have a fleet of luxury vehicles along with professional drivers, ready to take you to the next big London event in absolute style.
