All accommodation has high-speed WiFi and various TV packages are available giving access to most popular North American TV shows and sports leagues such as the NHL, NFL, NBA and MLB.

Mobile phone and Internet charges are considerably less in the UK than in North America. Network providers offer fantastic international rates making it easier and more cost effective to say in touch with friends and family back home.

Supermarkets such as Tesco, Sainsbury’s and Asda provide almost all of the common food and products that you enjoy at home whether you are in North America or Europe.
