A TRULY WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE
A NICE CHANGE FROM LONDON
On a recent trip to London we decided to see a bit of Essex. It only took an hour from London on the train and we picked the MGB GT and a picnic up just outside the station. My husband and I spent a lovely day touring the Essex countryside with a yummy hamper of food.
Ailsa, West Yorkshire
FOUND SOME HIDDEN GEMS
different for the day so we hired the MGB
Roadster. It was a gorgeous day and we chose a
route that we hadn’t done before and stumbled
across some hidden gems of Essex that we
didn’t realise were on our doorstep!
