This was bought through Virgin and I'm not sure how much for because it was bought as a gift. The lady who runs the session is called Margaret. She is very knowledgable but is also very to the point and can be perceived as rude....More

I have never written a review before, but this experience was so appalling I felt required to share my experience. First and foremost the woman who I dealt with was rude and aggressive, despite my every attempt to be placate and calm in my responses...More

I never write a review but this event justified one. It was terrible from start to finish and resulted in us walking out half way through. The worst part is the "lady" who runs this - one of the rudest, arrogant and hostile people I...More

Mine was not a Saturday but rather an evening event but sounds as if it was the same as the reviews below. I'm surprised to read that people didn't warm to Margaret as my friend and I found her knowledgable, witty if albeit a little...More

We were given a voucher for this as a gift and were unable to find the hotel easily so arrive a little late. On arrival we were greeted by someone who clearly has an almost Dickensian view of her customers and were refused entry to...More

My friend and I bought a Groupon voucher for the Saturday wine course and were looking forward to a day of informal wine tasting. Sadly we were disappointed. The first hour (at least) was spent doing smell tests and listening to uninteresting anacedotes from previous...More

Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and
leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance
access to many of London's most popular attractions.
It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated
museums, including the must-see British Museum.
Despite an understandable popularity with students,
tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury
retain a quiet, residential feel year round and
