Enjoy a fairytale in New York with new tours from Attraction Tickets Direct

17th October 2014

Attractions Ticket Direct is offering several new tours in New York this winter, and is also once again the only company in the UK to be offering rink-ready, guaranteed admission tickets, to the iconic ice skating at Trump Rink in Central Park.

New York is a firm favourite with Brits seeking a short break and ice skating is top of the list for those seeking a classic festive experience. The Trump Rink (formerly Wollman) in Central Park is the epitome of New York winter cool, surrounded by the splendour of Manhattan’s buildings and as featured in numerous movies and TV shows. Tickets are priced between £13 and £16 per person and include guaranteed admission and skate rental. The rink is open daily between 25 October 2014 and 5 April 2015.

New for 2014 is:

• SoHo and NoLita Chic Boutique Shopping Tour, £25pp

A shopping trip in Manhattan can be a daunting experience with such a large area to cover and so many shopping options. On this small group tour, a knowledgeable and fashion forward guide leads an ultimate NYC shopping experience through the downtown neighbourhoods of SoHo and NoLita, to a variety of boutiques and hidden gems. Guests receive exclusive discounts at several boutiques for the day, and the guide will advise the group about shop openings and special sales.

• Garment Centre “Insider” Shopping Tour, £41pp

Banish the boring and shop like an “insider” in the neighbourhood that is the epicentre of women’s fashion for the US and also home to NYC’s best deals. A combination of wholesale showrooms not accessible to the public and hidden sample sales – where discounts on current season women’s designer and ‘better wear’ will be from 50-80% below the retail price. There will be the opportunity to meet a designer in their inner sanctum, learn some history and see Project Runway and other landmarks.

• The Elephant Man on Broadway, from £145pp

Bernard Pomerance's Tony Award-winning classic, The Elephant Man, is being revived and starring twice Academy Award nominated Bradley Cooper as Joseph Merrick, a 19th century British man who became a star of the travelling freak show circuit. The show opens on November 8th, 2014 and runs until February 2015.
