Chir­ton Grange is T&I’s go-to service for su­per­ef­fi­cient car trans­fers from London Heathrow or Gatwick into the city and re­turn. But the award­win­ning fam­ily-owned com­pany has a swag of new chauf­feured tours, in­clud­ing hops around London and ex­cur­sions into the bu­colic Cotswolds and Shake­speare coun­try. Harry Pot­ter, es­pi­onage and Jane Austen themes are all on the agenda, too, while a Grue­some London out­ing takes in the Tower of London, Jack the Rip­per ter­ri­tory and The Gre­nadier pub­lic house in Bel­gravia, built in 1720 as the of­fi­cers’ mess for a Bri­tish army reg­i­ment and now hailed as one of London’s most haunted build­ings. It’s said to be spooked by the ghost of a sub­al­tern beaten to death by su­pe­ri­ors for cheat­ing at cards. Heathrow trans­fers start at £114 ($197) in­clud­ing tax; Chir­ton Grange uses Mercedes ve­hi­cles equipped with Wi-Fi and luxe ex­tras and, if de­part­ing on an af­ter­noon in­ter­na­tional flight, they sug­gest a drive and tour around Wind­sor Cas­tle en route. Trans­fers are also avail­able to London for cruise pas­sen­gers ar­riv­ing at Southamp­ton or Dover, with op­tional sightseeing at Stone­henge or Chartwell in Kent, Win­ston Churchill’s for­mer home.
