Individual parking reviews for 130 airports across United States and Canada

Hardy, VA, 2018-Jan-17 — /Travel PR News/ — Airport Parking Helper, a leading authority on discount airport parking in the United States and Canada, recently expanded its online services to an additional 117 airports.

“From Albuquerque to Winnipeg, we now offer individual parking review pages for 130 airports,” said the website’s founder, Jennifer Church. “Each airport review page details a variety of ways flyers can find cheap airport parking options. Some are traditional money-savings methods – like private off-site parking lots – while others are more creative airport parking strategies that perhaps they haven’t thought of before.”

To make it easier for travelers to quickly find their airport, AirportParkingHelper.com also added a powerful search feature.

“Simply type in your city name or airport code in the in the box at the upper right corner of every page and click ‘Go!’ to find the custom parking review for your airport,” Church said. “Once there, you can browse our expert airport parking tips, grab a coupon code and quickly and securely reserve your parking space online.”

Church added that new features have already been a huge hit with visitors to the site.

“We hear repeatedly from flyers in the U.S. and Canada that we’ve made it so much easier for them to find cheaper options for short term and long term airport parking,” she said. “Now, with a more robust site, we can help an even larger number of them save money and time by pre-booking a guaranteed spot, something most on-site economy airport parking lots don’t allow.”

While the expansion benefits travelers in small and mid-size markets who previously had difficulty finding a comprehensive resource for airport parking options, those in larger cities will also find the site’s added functionality helpful.

“With on-site airport parking costs continuing to skyrocket at major metro airports like New York’s JFK, Chicago’s O’Hare and SFO, it’s more important than ever for travelers to book airport parking in advance if they don’t want to be stuck with a hefty bill,” Church said. “It also helps reduce travel day stress when you know you’ve got a guaranteed parking spot and a quick, free shuttle ride straight to your terminal.”

Spain-Holiday.com: The 4 TOP TIPS how to get a Spanish summer holiday in the sun for less

MALAGA, 2018-Jan-11 — /EPR TRAVEL NEWS/ — Here are the 4 TOP TIPS how to get a Spanish summer holiday in the sun for less:

1. Taking the sting out of the School Holiday Peak Rates
The first rule for booking a budget beach break is normally to avoid travelling in the school holidays. However, if you have school-age children, then holidaying during those pricey summer school holidays is unavoidable.

However, the latest travel trend report from Spain-Holiday.com shows that even during the high season school summer holidays in July and August, there are still savings to be made of up to 32% off peak travel rates on the Spanish Costas.

Jannich Petersen COO of Spain-Holiday.com recommends:

“If you can be flexible on destination, there are some great deals on family-friendly beach holiday rental properties, such as on the Costa Dorada, where a week’s stay in mid-July can be found for an average 32% off, compared to peak travel prices in August.”

2. Book early
Early January is the time to book your summer holiday or at the very least to be thinking about it and finalising your arrangements before end of February. Families with school-aged children already know the dates that you can go away, so the sooner you narrow down your choice of location, you will have the best pick of properties at the best price.

3. Timing is everything
The off-season traveller often sees the best of a destination. With the high season crowds thinning out, cheaper flights and better deals to be found on accommodation.

Flexible travel dates can reap the biggest bargains. Just one week either side of peak of high season can see prices drop by an average of up to 13%. Two weeks either side of the peak of high season and those savings go up to an average of 32%.

“The difference of a couple of weeks either side of peak season, and just a few degrees in temperature can add up to as much as 60% savings on average”, advises Jannich Petersen, COO Spain-Holiday.com.

4. Look further afield
Certain areas are always more popular, having been promoted as tourist destinations to the international market for many decades.  However, with a little research, you can find equally stunning locations without looking too far.

The Costa Blanca is one of Spain’s beach destination hotspots and the price reflects this with an average peak travel rate of over €1,000 for a week’s accommodation in high season. However, accommodation on the neighbouring Costa Calida, is an average 22 per cent cheaper, saving more than €100 per week.

Spain-Holiday.com: Top 5 cheapest city break destinations in Spain

 

Malaga, Spain, Nov-3-2017 — /EuropaWire/ — With the clocks going back last weekend and the winter nights closing in, the impulse to book a last-minute flight to somewhere sunny is very tempting.

However, a cheap flight does not necessarily mean a cheap and cheerful weekend away.

Which city destination offers the best value depends to a large extent on how much you spend when you get there. The City Break Cost Index published by the Spain-Holiday.com reveals how typical costs for travellers varies greatly from city to city in Spain this autumn/winter. It examines everything from the price of airport transfer by taxi, bus, train and *Uber*, eating out, accommodation and things to do.

Where to go to escape the winter blues on a budget?

As you might expect, the report reveals that the most expensive cities are also the most popular cities – Barcelona, Madrid and Palma – but you may be surprised which cities offer the best value.

TOP 5 CHEAPEST CITY BREAK DESTINATIONS IN SPAIN

The Andalusian city of Jerez, famous for its sherry and dancing Andalusian horses, is the cheapest city to visit for a weekend break.

Andalusia is the top region to visit for a short break, with four cities – Jerez, Seville, Granada and Malaga – in the top 5 cheapest city break destinations. With new flight routes from the UK to Seville and Granada this winter, you can catch a flight and, within 3 hours, be enjoying tapas in a Spanish “plaza” in the November sunshine.

Comparing the price of visiting the top 10 attractions in each city, Barcelona is the most expensive city, costing £117 per person to visit attractions such as Sagrada Familia, Casa Battlo, Camp Nou Experience and Las Ramblas (which is thankfully free). In comparison, you would get change from £30 to visit the top 10 attractions in the cities of Alicante, Bilbao, Malaga and Seville.

After booking flights, travellers spend an average of £596 on a city break in Spain. Accommodation, eating out and visiting tourist attractions are what visitors are most likely to spend their budget on. The biggest cost tends to be accommodation, with travellers spending an average of £241 for a 2-night stay.

While hotels remain one of the top accommodation choices, staying in a city centre apartment not only offers flexibility but huge savings too.

For example, a rental apartment for two people in Malaga costs up to £156 less than a double room in a hotel. And for under £200, a couple can find quality rental accommodation for 2-nights in the heart of Jerez, Malaga, Alicante and Valencia.

Jannich Petersen, COO of Spain-Holiday.com commented:

“City breaks are almost as popular as sun and beach holidays to Spain and now represent 26% of all holidays.”

“The top 10 Spanish cities differ greatly in their appeal and there is something for everyone, whether they are culture vultures, shopaholics, foodies or those looking for a vibrant nightlife.

The City Break Cost Index aims to provide clarity for travellers to plan and budget for a memorable weekend winter break in Spain that doesn’t break the bank”.

Travel to Africa this Holiday season on a wise budget friendly Nairobi tours and Kenya Safari Packages

Nairobi, Kenya, 2017-Nov-02 — /EPR TRAVEL NEWS/ — Budget travelers are increasingly looking for holiday destinations on the internet opting to join other people for any Kenya safari package. Most Tourists use price as a major factor in deciding which safari company to use thus the idea to share the costs.

Over the past 8 months it has been reported that there has been an increase of requests by single and budget travellers on shared Safaris. Group bookings arranged to make travel and accommodation cheaper for tourists in Kenya have dominated this safari option, the groups are encouraged to charter planes at reduced airfares from Europe to Kenya to come and join Safari Ndovu 6 days safari package.

Featuring of the Safari Ndovu 6 day safari package by Cruzeiro-Safaris.com is a pocket friendly safari incorporating 2 national parks that is Amboseli National Park and Lake Nakuru National park, 1 game reserve Masai Mara National Reserve and 1 popular eatery attraction that is the carnivore restaurant in Nairobi. It is important for tourists to know the different wildlife terminologies used in Kenya such as National parks, game reserves and sanctuaries found in Kenya.

National Parks are set up and controlled by the central government. They are established by an Act of Parliament or through legal notice by the Minister concerned, in the government gazette. Its boundaries or existence can only be altered by similar legislative action. National Parks are managed and controlled by government agencies. The agencies collect entry fees to the parks, take care of the animals and assist in resolving the people animal conflict.

The Safari Ndovu 6 day Safari package visits 2 (two) of these National Parks namely Amboseli and Lake Nakuru National Parks.

Other Important National Parks are:

  • Nairobi National Park tour in Nairobi
  • Amboseli National Park Day trips from Nairobi
  • Lake Nakuru National Park Full day trip from Nairobi
  • Aberdares National Park Safaris from Nairobi
  • Tsavo East and Tsavo West Tours and Safaris from Mombasa

Other attractions in Nairobi

  • Elephant Orphanage Tour in Nairobi
  • Giraffe Center and Karen Blixen in Nairobi
  • Nairobi City Tour, national museum plus lunch

National Game reserves or National Reserves are set up and managed by the local authority where it is located. The local communities interact freely with the wildlife before such an area is declared a game reserve. Unlike National Parks, the local communities are allowed to live and graze their animals in game reserves. For example, the Maasai people live and graze their animals in Masai Mara without being restricted by the management of the park. Game reserves may also be set up and owned and managed by private individuals with special permission from the Central Government. In Laikipia district, there are several game reserves that are privately owned and fenced off from the public. The Government has little control over what takes place in the privately-owned game ranches. Whereas the government has banned game hunting, animals in privately owned ranches are slaughtered to provide game meat to major hotels in Nairobi and Mombasa under licence from the Central Government.

Wildlife Sanctuaries are areas that have been set aside for the protection of specific animals or birds if they are considered endangered for one reason or other. In an environment where elephants are threatened by poachers for example, a protected area is established and fenced off to host only elephants, where they are cared for and secured. Such an area is called an elephant sanctuary such as the Mwaluganje National reserve in Kwale District. The Safari Ndovu – 6 days package does not visit any sanctuary, however at Cruzeiro-safaris, one may request for a tailored safari to the Sweet Waters Sanctuary caring for Chimpanzees or any other Sanctuary.

Other safaris located in the best game drive view places

  • Mount Kenya and Masai Mara Safari by Road and Flights for 9 (nine) Days
  • Luxury Travel to the best choice of hotels and lodges in Kenya
  • Governors Camp in Masai Mara Safari package for 4 (four) Days flights

The one eatery attraction in the Safari Ndovu – 6 days safari package itinerary is called the Carnivore Restaurant in Nairobi. Guests on the Amboseli National Reserve 3 days package safari or Lake Nakuru & Masai Mara 4 days package safari may join in or drop off on pre-organised group tours after a sumptuous meal at the Carnivore, featuring various kinds of game meat. Carnivore is also known as the meat eaters’ paradise.

Shimba Hills Tour from Mombasa and Diani
One of our guests from Russia who travelled to 1 park and 1 reserve had this to say on our trip advisor page:

Lake Nakuru & Massai Mara My wife and me spent 4 days at Lake Nakuru and Maasai Mara Sopa lodges with Cruseiro. The pick up/drop off from NBO airport.

I like the concept when Cruseiro gives you the mini-bus with a driver who is also a very good guide and who always stays with you during your Safari. The driver/guide is absolutely flexible for you to get maximum pleasure from your trip. The mini-bus hasn’t been very comfortable but nearly all Kenyan safari operators use this type of Toyota vans as it’s realistically very reasonable for Kenyan roads.

Lake Nakuru lodge has a very picturesque location. We could watch rhinos fighting in 20 meters from our lodge window. Maasai Sopa although had much better kitchen. The only negative impression was extremely noisy neighborhood – Chinese in lake Nakuru and north American in Maasai Sopa.

Special thanks to our very experienced guide and driver Simon. We enjoyed his gentleman manners and good sence of humor. Simon did his best to please us up to the end of the trip. Besides, Simon has a very good feeling of where to go to see the best of the wild life. Many thanks to Andrew and Claudia as well. It was a great experience for us!

Cheap Airport parking finder AirportParkingHelper.com to expand in 2016

Roanoke, VA, 2016-Apr-29 — /EPR Travel News/ — AirportParkingHelper.com, a leading national authority on airport parking and related travel topics, recently announced a number of expansion plans for 2016.

Website founder Jennifer Church said she has acquired a partner who will provide critical services to the popular Virginia-based website, which plans to nearly double its online reviews for airport parking alternatives in the first half of the year. Expanding the social media presence for AirportParkingHelper.com is also a major initiative planned for 2016.

“I’m thrilled that Andie Gibson, an accomplished writer, editor and social media manager, has come on board to help me lead AirportParkingHelper.com into the next phase of development,” Church said. “Her extensive skill set and professional background will be of great benefit to the site, which has experienced tremendous growth over the past year.”

AirportParkingHelper.com provides online guides to help travelers uncover discount airport parking alternatives to costly on-site lots at major U.S. airports, including Los Angeles (LAX), San Francisco (SFO), Oakland (OAK), Detroit (DTW), Minneapolis-St. Paul (MSP), John F.

Plans are in the works to add reviews for a number of additional airports, including Philadelphia International (PHL), San Jose International (SJC), Hartford Bradley International (BDL) and Baltimore-Washington International (BWI).

“These are facilities where AirportParkingHelper.com users have told us they want to find cheaper options for short term and long term airport parking,” Church said. “With rates for on-site airport parking so expensive, demand is high for cost-saving alternatives. The new guides will be indispensable for travelers in these markets.”

AirportParkingHelper.com is also ramping up social media efforts to help spread the word on the many ways travelers can save on airport parking – whether it be at offsite lots with free shuttle services, hotels that offer free parking packages, daily deal websites or discount car rental companies.

“Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, Google+ and LinkedIn are all platforms we utilize to share with travelers the benefits of using Airport Parking Helper,” Church said. “We encourage anyone using social media to like and follow us to stay on top of ways to find practical, helpful information on saving money on short-term and long-term airport parking.”

LondonTown.com: London landscapes celebrated in new exhibition

South London parks are the subject of new photographic exhibition at the Horniman Museum.

LONDON, June 08, 2015 — /EPR TRAVEL NEWS/ — A new photographic exhibition celebrating London’s lesser-known landscapes open this month at one of London’s friendliest museums. South London Landscapes is now open at the Horniman Museum And Gallery this week and runs throughout the summer, featuring photographs of the Horniman itself as well as other picturesque public spaces in and around south London. The Horniman is one of London’s liveliest small museums, boasting excellent natural history and music galleries, a small aquarium and extensive landscaped grounds. For more information, and to see the latest deals on London hotels, see LondonTown.com.

South London Landscapes features photographs taken by London-based landscape photographer Max A Rush. The photographs, which include pictures of the Horniman Gardens, are taken in unusual and beautiful weather and capture how the passage of the seasons and the forces of the weather transform the appearance and character of the local landscape. Areas featured in South London Landscapes include Brockwell Park, Crystal Palace Park, Dulwich Park, Dulwich Wood, Ruskin Park and the Horniman Gardens.

Max Rush says: ‘These are a few of my favourite locations around south London. I’ve continually returned to them over the years, watching the seasons pass and the elements batter, freeze and occasionally warm their well-worn faces. I’ve witnessed moments of transcendental beauty in familiar places and endeavoured to capture them as truthfully as I can. So many people fight their way out of the city every week for the sake of nature, but perhaps what they’re looking for was here all along.’ For more information on this and other exhibitions and events taking place at the Horniman this summer, see LondonTown.com.

LondonTown.com: Groundbreaking London exhibition looks at post-war Black British artists

Guildhall Art Gallery explores the work of little-known but pivotal Afro-Caribbean artists

LONDON, June 08, 2015 — /EPR TRAVEL NEWS/ — A groundbreaking new exhibition at the Guildhall Art Gallery in the City of London will look at the little-known and rarely exhibited history of 20th-century Black British art. No Colour Bar: Black British Art in Action 1960-1990 runs from 10 July 2015 to 24 January 2016, and will explore the history of art produced by Britain’s Afro-Caribbean citizens, reflecting their experiences in the country after the major emigrations that occurred following the end of the Empire at the conclusion of the Second World War. For more information on this and other exhibitions in London this summer, see LondonTown.com, where you can also find information on London events and cheap London hotels.

At the heart of the exhibition will be a recreation of the Bogle-L’Ouverture Walter Rodney bookshop, created by renowned artist and curator Dr Michael McMillan (West Indian Front Room) and sound and visual specialists, Dubmorphology. Visitors will be able to immerse themselves in a stunning multi-sensory, multi-visual experience including works of art, sculpture, photographs, paintings, letters and other artefacts from more than 25 prominent Black artists during this period including Eddie Chambers, Sonia Boyce, Denzil Forrester and Chila Kumari Burman.

Influenced by the emergence of newly independent African and Caribbean states, global liberation struggles, the fight against unfair discrimination and an insistence on dignified citizenship within Britain, these artists found expression by way of ‘creation for liberation’. The exhibition will explore these struggles and celebrate their contribution through four themes: ‘Elbow Room’, ‘Broad Shoulders’, ‘Clenched Fists’ and ‘Open Arms’.

Throughout its tenure, No Colour Bar: Black British Art in Action 1960-1990 will also play host to a series of scheduled events enriching the visitor experience through a diverse range of educational talks, workshops and gallery tours. For more information on this and other exhibitions in the City of London, see LondonTown.com.

LondonTown.com: Cutting-edge US artist receives first major European show in London this summer

Raven Row gallery in Spitalfields hosts a retrospective of ground-breaking US artist Larry Johnson.

LONDON, June 08, 2015 — /EPR NETWORK/ — One of America’s most interesting contemporary artists is to receive his first major European exhibition at a new gallery that focuses on cutting-edge, avant-garde art. Raven Row is a non-profit contemporary art exhibition centre in Spitalfields that is housed within two eighteenth-century merchants’ houses integrated with new galleries and its next exhibition, Larry Johnson: On Location runs from 11 June to 9 August 2015. It is directed and funded by Alex Sainsbury of the Sainsbury family, whose family have funded many great art projects in London, such as the Sainsbury Wing of the National Gallery. Raven Row is a very different enterprise, offering thoughtful shows on lesser-known artists and allowing visitors to explore the fascinating quarter of Spitalfields. The area is filled with fashionable boutiques, great shops and cool bars and restaurants. To explore its attractions, see LondonTown.com, where you can also find the latest room rates for hotels in London.

On Location brings together a selection of works by Larry Johnson from the early 1990s to the present. The show’s uncontested star is Los Angeles, the city in which Johnson has lived and worked all his life. For over thirty years, LA’s physical and imaginary appearance has served as the set for the artist’s photo-based investigations of the glamour industry, replete with fading stars and premature deaths. Johnson’s work bears the marks of a generation of artists sampling readymade images and texts to create seductively laconic pictures. Yet the colourful sheen of Johnson’s photo-based works is also a foil for sexual, political and semantic tension. The artist’s pictures are encryptions of a Hollywood demi-monde, referring to the cultures from which his work emerges queer, political, filmic and theoretical.

The exhibition is curated by Los Angeles-based writer Bruce Hainley, and by Antony Hudek, Curator and Deputy Director of Raven Row. Commie Pinko Guy, a publication edited by Hainley with new essays by Morgan Fisher, Lisa Lapinski, Hainley, Hudek and Wayne Koestenbaum, as well as reprints of classic underground queer writing, will accompany the exhibition. For more information on this and other exhibitions in London’s cutting-edge contemporary art scene, see LondonTown.com.

LondonTown.com: Classic London cinema at the Southbank all summer

BFI Southbank unveils new season dedicated to films exploring the UK capital.

LONDON, June 08, 2015 — /EPR TRAVEL NEWS/ — London On Film is a new major season of films at the BFI Southbank that will explore and celebrate the capital for four months from 1st July to 9th October. This is the first time the BFI has ever celebrated the city in which it is based, and will feature 200 films, a number of which have been unseen since they were first filmed, offering an extraordinary perspective of the city from the past 120 years. The BFI Southbank is the national home of cinema, featuring three state-of-the-art screens in Waterloo on the Southbank.For more on this vital cultural quarter, as well as the latest rates forLondon hotels, seeLondonTown.com.

The London On Film season will include events such as a Soho Weekender (24-26 July) to celebrate the unique culture of Soho captured in films from 1896 – 1985 such as West End Jungle (1961), The Small World of Sammy Lee(1963) and Sunshine in Soho (1956). There will also be a discussion event Vanishing Soho on the state of Soho today in the light of current major changes for those who live and play there. It will include some of the earliest films ever made, such as RW Paul’s Blackfriars Bridge (1896(. Films from major filmmakers include Anthony Asquith’s evocative Underground (1928), the first feature to be shot on the underground and Nicolas Roeg’s Performance (1970), which takes us into the dangerous realms of psychedelic and sexual experimentation. There will also be films by Alfred Hitchcock, Michael Winterbottom and Otto Preminger.

Black experience is highlighted in a series of key films including Earl Cameron’s pioneering role as a black sailor in the crime drama Pool of London (1951) with fine use of locations around Tower Bridge, Poplar, Southwark and the City; Cameron also stars in the little seen The Heart Within (1957) another crime thriller set in London’s Docklands. Sapphire (Basil Dearden, 1959) is a film-maker’s response to the Notting Hill race riots wrapped up in a murder mystery while Babylon (Franco Rosso, 1981) shows the demoralisation of black youth, and offers an eerily prescient portrait of the situation in Deptford which would give rise to the Brixton Riots of the same year.

LondonTown.com: British Museum gets its medals out for the great French Sun King

Free exhibition at the museum showcases remarkable 17th-century emblems of Louis XIV’s reign

LONDON, June 08, 2015 — /EPR TRAVEL NEWS/ — The British Museum is holding a new exhibition that looks at the medals drawn from the reign of the great French Sun King, Louis XIV. Triumph and disaster: medals of the Sun King runs from 4 June to 15 November and marks the tercentenary year of the death of Louis XIV. It is one of several free exhibitions that are held at the British Museum every year to draw attention to the many easily overlooked marvels within its collection and to present them in new ways to mark anniversaries or to reinterpret the material. For more information on the full programme of exhibitions at the British Museum, see LondonTown.com, where you can also find the latest information on cheap hotels in London.

The Louis XIV medals are preserved as they were in Louis XIV’s own day and includes contributions from the British Library which has a unique manuscript scrapbook of drawings and notes on the creation of the history, and the V&A. The medals were a way for the king to portray his reign and the greatest writers (including Jean Racine), historians, artists and medalists of the day were brought together by the king to ensure that posterity would see his rule as Louis wished it to be seen: the reign of an ideal and ever victorious monarch.

The early medals portray a dazzling image of a ‘Sun King,’ who is represented as hard-working, accessible, generous and just; a king that worked for the benefit of the people, glorifying as much in their happiness as in victory over his enemies. The picture changed as war succeeded war and defeat succeeded victory. The later medals, though careful to represent only French successes, are so numerous that they give the impression not of victory but of endless and draining warfare.

Elsewhere in Europe, particularly in the Netherlands, medals were produced that mocked and satirized the official French medals. These rival medals showed the French sun eclipsed by the zodiacal signs of his enemies, and Louis as an old man being roundly beaten by Queen Anne. Collectively, these medals and attendant literature present a fascinating and unique self-portrait of a regime which dominated Europe for nearly sixty years, and which established the primacy of French taste and French culture for over a century.

Over the weekend from 19-21 June, Parviz Kimiavi will feature. Spanning four screenings over three days, this will be the UK’s first major survey of maverick filmmaker Parviz Kimiavi, a pioneer of alternative cinema in 1970’s Iran.

Curator Bruce Hainley and writer Wayne Koestenbaum will discuss his work, followed by a specially selected cult film. On 8 July, Mathieu Kleyebe Abonnenc’s new film will be screened.

The screening will be introduced by a live concert by the electronic music act PAL. Finally, over three days from 10-12 June, The Film Will Always Be You: South African Artists on Screen will explore the film work of key artists in South Africa.

LondonTown.com: New London museum located in notorious hospital

Bethlam Royal Hospital hosts new permanent Museum Of The Mind.

LONDON, March 23, 2015 — /EPR TRAVEL NEWS/ — One of the most notorious psychiatric hospitals in history – Bethlam Royal Hospital, which gave its name to the word ‘bedlam’ – will be opening a pioneering gallery and museum on its premises this month. The new displays will be filled with the personal stories – both historic and contemporary – of those who have experienced mental health difficulties and will explore the long, controversial and often misunderstood history of Bethlem, founded 1247 in central London. Bethlem Gallery and Museum of the Mind opens on 19 February 2015. The Bethlam Royal Hospital has occupied various sites, including the building now used by the Imperial War Museum in Waterloo, and is now located in Beckenham, a short journey by train from the centre of London. To see other attractions in the area and learn how to get to Beckenham, as well as finding up-to-date information on hotels in London, see LondonTown.com.

The Bethlem Gallery and Museum of the Mind will occupy the hospital’s original 1930s administration building and celebrate the lives and achievements of those living with mental ill-health. Themed gallery spaces will explore the reasons why people arrive at Bethlem, aiming to inspire discussion, debate and reflection on mental health issues which are as relevant today as they were in the past. The museum will house significant art and historical artefacts, almost all of which will be on display for the first time, as well as works by current artists and hospital service users.

Among the highlights are paintings and drawings by Richard Dadd, Louis Wain and Jonathan Martin, each of whom was a former Bethlem or Maudsley Hospital patient; and the oldest objects in the collection, the imposing statues, ‘Raving and Melancholy Madness’ by Caius Gabriel Cibber (c1676) which originally stood above the gates of the 17th century ‘Bedlam’ at Moorfields. They will now take their place either side of the art deco staircase directly ahead of visitors entering the new museum. Notable paintings from the internationally renowned art collection include ‘The Maze’ by William Kurelek (1953), ‘Sketch of an idea for Crazy Jane’ by Richard Dadd (1855), ‘Numb’ by Lisa Biles (2009) and ‘Phrenology’ by Louis Wain (1911). Each of these will be on permanent display.

The exhibition will include striking images by Victorian photographer Henry Hering of Bethlem patients taken before and after treatment in order to detect their mental health conditions through facial expressions and features. The collection will also feature a key to the gates of the 18th century hospital, 19th century manacles, chains, straitjackets and other physical restraint devices, comments and letters from visitors from the 18th century up until today and 19th century admission and discharge registers.

LondonTown.com: London Zoo’s lemurs get brilliant new home

In With The Lemurs, a new home for the primates, opens next month at London Zoo.

LONDON, March 23, 2015 — /EPR TRAVEL NEWS/ — London Zoo is getting a new attraction next month in the shape of a swanky new walk-through home for the zoo’s playful troop of 16 lemurs. In With The Lemurs is a fine new base for the lemurs at the zoo, nestled as it is in the heart of leafy Regent’s Park, kitted out with the best accessories and with a desirable NW1 postcode. The new lemur attraction opens on Saturday 28th March at London Zoo. For more information on the zoo and other attractions in the area, as well as the best deals for a hotel in London, see LondonTown.com.

The lemur pen will be home to 15 ring-tail lemurs and one black and white ruffed lemur. Designed by the zoo’s expert keepers and horticulturalists,  In With The Lemurs will take visitors on a journey through the Madagascan shrub forest where the evolutionarily unique primates will be leaping, climbing and lounging all around them. Renowned sun-worshippers, the lemurs love nothing more than an afternoon spent sunbathing. With this in mind the zoo’s dedicated architects have carefully mapped the path of the sunlight on the new exhibit to ensure their basking platforms are purposefully located to maximise lounging time.

With an uncertain future in the wild, lemurs face a daily struggle to survive due to extensive habitat loss, and over-hunting. In With The Lemurs will give the zoo’s visitors a glimpse of these threats in the exhibit’s replica timber mill, highlighting the devastating effect the industry has on the lemurs’ wild habitat. Ring-tail lemurs are classified as endangered on the IUCN red-list, as are black and white ruffed lemurs, which are also listed on international conservation charity ZSL’s EDGE of Existence programme, due to the threat to their survival and evolutionary distinctiveness. The new attraction will help ensure that London Zoo remains one of Europe’s leading zoos in the way it combines fascinating attractions with sympathetic environments, following recent transformations of the enclosures for lions, tigers and gorillas. For more information on London Zoo, including location, travel information, admission prices and opening times, see LondonTown.com, the best London website for tourists and visitors to the capital.

LondonTown.com: London’s Design Museum unveils exciting programme for 2015

Bicycles and shoes are among the subjects that will be explored in wide-ranging exhibitions.

LONDON, January 07, 2015 — /EPR TRAVEL NEWS/ — London’s Design Museum, a space dedicated to the art and history of excellent design, has unveiled its exhibition schedule for 2015. This will include the first ever museum exhibition on the Spanish shoe brand Camper, a celebration of bicycle design, and an exploration of parametric architecture and design. The Design Museum is located in Bermondsey, a short walk from the blossoming London Bridge area, which has some of the most interesting shops, restaurants and hotels in London. A wide range of events and exhibitions to be found in the area can be found on LondonTown.com, London’s dedicated website for tourists in London.

Spring’s big exhibition will be Life On Foot: Camper At The Design Museum (13th May – 1st November 2015) will be the first exhibition devoted to the much-loved Spanish footwear brand Camper on the 40 th anniversary of this independent family-run business. The exhibition will take visitors from the design studios in Mallorca to high-tech mass production facilities in the Far East, and on to shop floors across the globe, charts the design and manufacturing process of Camper’s instantly-recognisable products, as well as their conceptual retail spaces and non-conformist, often humorous approach to advertising.

In the autumn, Bicycles (9th September 2015 – 28th February 2016) will explore Britain’s fascination with the bike. Cycling is the phenomenon that is changing the way we use and consider our towns and cities. It is driving a wave of creative innovation for mass market cycling, and has also resulted in a surge of craftsman bicycle makers working by hand to tailor machines to the precise specifications of their users. The results are beautiful as well as ingenious. The Design Museum will celebrate the bicycle with a major exhibition that brings together a range of the definitive bicycles of our times, explores cycling subcultures and looks at the impact the quest to achieve greater performance is having on the design of bicycles.

Finally, The New International Style: The Parametric Revolution (18th November 2015 – 30th June 2016) will explore the “International Style”, an approach to design that flourished in the 1920s in France, Germany, Switzerland and Holland, which shared a belief in modernism, and an aesthetic based on austere machine-like simplicity. Modernism is now facing a rebirth and this exhibition will explore the range, the roots, and the future of this creative and complex view of the world of design. For more on this and other exhibitions opening in 2015 at the Design Museum, see LondonTown.com.

LondonTown.com: Innovative outsider artist celebrated in London exhibition

East London gallery holds exhibition of works of art therapy pioneer Mary Barnes.

LONDON, January 07, 2015 — /EPR TRAVEL NEWS/ — London’s quirky and adventurous art exhibition programme starts 2015 with a bang, with a fascinating display at the Nunnery Gallery in Bow looking at the work of outsider artist Mary Barnes. The Nunnery Gallery on the Bow Road is one of the city’s many innovative small spaces that feature unusual and creative exhibitions. For more on the galleries of East London, see LondonTown.com, where you will also find information on the best cheap hotels in London. The exhibition runs from 16th January to 29th March 2015.

The Mary Barnes exhibition at the Nunnery gallery is called Boo-Bah, which is the nickname Barnes gave to her therapist and friend Dr Joseph Berke. The paintings and drawings in the exhibition are largely drawn from Berke’s collection of Barnes’s work and she gave him the nickname in a love letter that scaled over a metre high, scrawled in Mary’s inimitable handwriting.

The exhibition covers works spanning her artistic career which began in the 1960s in Bow. Barnes moved to Kingsley Hall in East London in 1965 following a breakdown and diagnosis of schizophrenia. Here she joined the Philadelphia Association which was an alternative and experimental treatment community, created by the radical psychiatrist RD Laing and his colleagues. It was at the same time that Joseph Berke travelled to East London, as a recent medical graduate from New York, to work for Laing and this is where he met Mary Barnes. They developed a strong bond, dramatised in the play Mary Barnes by David Edgar which was itself based on the book Mary Barnes: Two Accounts of a Journey Through Madnes s written by Berke and Barnes. At this time, Barnes discovered her talent for art, producing vivid paintings often on religious theme. The exhibition launches the Nunnery Gallery’s season In Dialogue, a year-long exploration of partnerships, artistic inspirations and deeply involved relationships between the artist and the muse.
