My brother and his lovely other half are both retailers; he works for Tesco, she works for M&S. One of the M&S perks is that employees (and other halves) can stay in the Marks and Spencer executive apartment which is on top of Marble Arch above their flagship store! They are doing that this evening, and spending 24 hours 'doing' London, taking in the lights, the shopping and I suppose dinner. Marble Arch is sort of at the corner of Park Lane and Oxford St (I think).
Sounds a top lark to me, especially as they are only 35 minutes out by train!
Blog BS5 offers a similar perk whereby readers can stay in the rather chilly loft room of the house and take in the delights of Church Road, shopping metropolis of the postcode area.
