Christmas Party

#ThinkCoach for your Christmas Party!

By | #ThinkCoach | No Comments

As December edges closer so does the event of the year. No, we’re not talking Christmas day; we’re talking about the annual Christmas party!

Whether you’re heading to the pub or you’re venturing to a new city, you need transport to get you safely there – and let’s not forget to get you safely home. Taxi queues are a nightmare at this time of year, so it’s worth considering coaches as a reliable alternative if you’re travelling in numbers.

If you really want to treat yourselves, we have a 35-seater V.I.P coach available for hire. The coach has Wi-Fi and charger points throughout, so your Snapchat fans won’t miss a second!

VIP Coach

The VIP coach features TVs throughout, so you could play a festive movie to get you in the mood or even play highlights from your year. If VIP isn’t your style, we have a selection of standard and executive coaches to choose from.

Our drivers are always professional, DBS checked and wear a uniform. Whatever your budget, whatever your requirements, we’ll find a coach to fit you.

We’re already taking bookings for Christmas, so request your quote now. If you’re not planning a Christmas party, we are also available for private hire for other events – find out more here.

#ThinkCoach Autumn Destinations:

By | #ThinkCoach | No Comments

Autumn brings an array of sights, sounds and smells to mind. The countryside comes alive with colour and the nostalgic aromas make us reminiscent of times gone by.

It’s the perfect season for long scenic walks and catching up with friends. So, grab your mittens and your hiking boots and head to some of the best autumnal destinations!

Lake District

Internationally known for its breath-taking terrain – a combination of mountains, lakes, forests and quaint picturesque towns.

Wander in and out of quirky independent stores and cafés. If you want to take a more active route you can hike some of the UK’s highest mountains for wonderful views!

Cragside

The home of famous inventor Lord Armstrong and the first home to be energised by hydroelectricity. Cragside was a house truly ahead of its time, packed with gadgets and inventions.

Not only is the home enchanting but the surrounding gardens are spectacular too. There’s so much to explore with over 1,000 acres of hills, lakes, woodland and gardens.

A great day out for the young or old, with a variety of historic towns and villages to discover. Learn what it was like living through the ages, complete with old-fashioned culinary experiences!

Kielder Water and Forest Park

The park is the home of Europe’s largest man-made lake and the largest forest in England. Try to spot some of the local wildlife or visit some of the world’s largest birds at the Birds of Prey Centre.

The skies are the least polluted in the UK, part of Northumberland International Dark Sky Park. Join a stargazing event at Kielder Observatory or simply stay after dark to experience the stars.

Hadrian’s Wall

Walk in the footsteps of Roman kings along Hadrian’s Wall, with over 20 heritage sites along the way. Enjoy the unspoilt scenery in Northumberland and relive years of roman occupation.

Hike across the landmark or visit one of the many of the forts that once protected the wall. Why not visit Chester’s Roman Fort and Museum? It’s a fantastic interactive museum about Roman history!

#ThinkCoach quirky ideas for your hen do!

By | #ThinkCoach | No Comments

Weddings take a lot of planning and effort, but before the big day there’s a slightly wilder event you need to organise – your hen do.

Traditionally you’re only meant to have one, but even if it’s your seventh, you want to make it a night to remember. Male strippers and cocktails are slightly overdone. If you’re struggling for unique ideas, here are some suggestions to save your thumbs from endless scrolling:

Axe-throwing at Hatchett Harry’s in Newcastle:

If Newcastle wasn’t appealing enough with trebles as a signature drink, you can now throw axes at a wall for a couple of hours. Whey aye man!

Ok, this isn’t totally different to male strippers. Choose a hunky model for a life drawing class – surely the art aspect makes it elegant?

Horse racing

#ThinkCoach for the Races: don’t worry about transport, worry about your outfit!

By | #ThinkCoach, Uncategorised | No Comments

The sun is beginning to appear, beer gardens are filling up and you’re starting to plan your summer outings – what about a quintessentially British day at the races?

Horse racing originated amongst the tribesmen of Central Asia and is reported across many countries throughout history.

Horse racing in the UK is traced back as early as the 12th century and it’s well-known that King Charles II regularly held horse races (between two horses) as a form of entertainment.

Underneath Queen Anne’s reign in the early 1700s, horse racing became a betting sport and the racers increased from two to as many as fifteen.

The races lady

In 1711, horse racing became a professional sport in the UK, Royal Ascot was born, and racecourses erupted across the country.

Horse racing today is a mix of old and contemporary traditions, from boozing on champagne, XXL fascinators and the not-so-new obsessive gambling.

Although Royal Ascot is Britain’s most prestigious racing event, there are many others you can attend from the British Classics to cheaper local racing events with a less strict dress code.

Whether it’s Thirsk Racecourse or Ascot Racecourse you’re attending, transport should be stress-free and seamless – Enterprise Travel drivers may not wear fascinators, but they are uniformed and professional.

Enterprise Travel has a range of vehicles available so you can arrive however you like from 16-seater with disability access, larger standard coaches to our deluxe V.I.P. coach for the more bougie race-goers.

If you’re not a horse racing fan, don’t let that put you off – there’s many other trips we can accommodate, simply contact us with your request and we can provide you with a quote!

Team Building

#ThinkCoach Corporate events and team building (no trust falls)

By | #ThinkCoach | No Comments

Have you noticed glum faces around the office? Stress is a common problem in the workplace.

A busy work environment can push certain employees to achieve their goals, but too much stress can have negative effects on individuals, team members and the company!

Whilst team building is positive for the individual on a business level, team building can also improve problem-solving skills, identify strengths and weaknesses and develop leadership skills.

The location of your corporate event is entirely dependent on company goals and preference.

Here are some ideas for fun team building destinations:

Tough Mudder:

You’ve seen it draped across Facebook – this 5KM obstacle course puts teamwork to the test – and your team will dig it!

Tough Mudder

Den of Dragons:

Recognise this from TV? Prepare a business pitch and present it to a team of dragons, perfect for innovating and stimulating your employees – are you in?

Leather Chair

Escape Rooms:

Growing in popularity across the UK, escape rooms unlock your problem-solving skills – with themes ranging from ‘90s classic The Crystal Maze to cult horror film SAW.

Lock on door

Sausage making:

If your team is a group of vegetarians or vegans, stay away – but for the carnivorous companies, designing and marketing your own sausage is a creative and tasty way to connect!

Sausages

Seminars and conferences:

Are none of these suitable? You can always get your team to attend a conference or seminar, this is great for expanding sector knowledge and networking!

Conference and seminar

Wherever you decide to take your team, you’ll have to arrange transport so why not #ThinkCoach?

Enterprise Travel has a range of vehicles from 33 to 70 seats – we’ll get your employees there punctually and comfortably!
