A group of Brownell's independent advisors recently traveled to London for the "London is Open" event to celebrate the easing of U.K. restrictions for U.S. visitors. Our friends at @noteworthy.experiences teamed up with 13 of our most incredible hotel partners to create one of the most memorable weekends celebrating the country's reopening. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Our advisors had unparalleled insider access that included a private tour of the London Underground that's closed to the public, a private showing of Princess Diana's wedding dress, a special salute from the Queen's Guard, a special performance by the cast of SIX, going behind the glass at the Churchill War rooms and a meeting with members of the royal family. This kind of insider access makes it possible for our advisors to create personalized, exclusive trips for their clients. We are honored to be a part of tourism recovery - 🎉
