Special Offers


I occasionally feature deals that are available in the local area that I think readers and local residents might like. Here’s one that I think a number of you might like – certainly something I’m interested in!

If you’ve passed through Kensington Arcade (where High Street Kensington station is) in the last year or so, you might have noticed an intriguing new venue named Urban Golf. Launched in 2004, Urban Golf uses state of the art golf simulators to allow players to tee off on versions of some of the world’s most famous courses, such as St Andrews, all in a smart, funky setting. There’s also a bar on site offering a selection of drinks and nibbles, meaning Urban Golf is great for a daytime jaunt or a night out.

Groupon are today offering two hours of play at Urban Golf for only £24.99 instead of £100 – a saving of up to 75%. This deal is valid at the Kensington venue (where you can use it for play 7 days a week, until 28th February), though you an also book a session at their venues in Smithfield and Soho (bookings can only be taken for Monday – Friday, 10am to 6pm).

See the link for full details of the deal and its terms – though it’s a great way of trying out this fantastic golf simulator as well as trying something new for 2011!

Here’s another great deal for our readers! After you’ve got yourself pampered and relaxed with Monday’s 25% off a facial or massage offer, get yourself kitted out in some rather funky threads!
Deal-of-the-day website Groupon are offering at £50 American Apparel voucher for only £25, which can be redeemed instore or online. Amongst their stores in London, there’s one at 176-178 Portobello Road, W11 and another at 40 Kensington High Street, W8, so it’s easy for anyone in the area to pop into a local branch and peruse the racks.
Those familiar with the store will know the wide range of men’s, women’s, kids’ and baby clothing that they sell, as well as featuring a good line of accessories. Whether it’s something to help wrap yourself up in for the current cold weather (I’ve found their fleece hoodies very comfy, whilst their multi-functional, soft scarves rather versatile) or something more suitable for the party season (who can resist all that sparkle and lamé? I can’t!), the voucher can certainly be put to good use.
