Two four-night MBT Immersive Experiences are planned for January 2019 at Lumley Castle hotel in the United Kingdom. This glorious and extremely authentic 14th Century castle has been a luxury boutique hotel since 1996. We are thrilled to be taking over the whole castle for what promises to be two amazing events. Lumley Castle is situated just outside the medieval city of Durham in the north east of England. In the past, the castle, whose origins go back over a thousand years, has played host to kings and princes. Standing proud for more than 600 years, the magnificent spectacle of Lumley Castle dominates the County Durham landscape. Surrounded by beautiful parklands overlooking the River Wear, it is a magnificent monument to a bygone age of chivalry and honour.
The dates for these immersive are:
January 13-17, 2019 EXTREMELY LIMITED AVAILABILITY
January 20-24, 2019 SOLD OUT
PLEASE NOTE: There are currently no plans to bring Tom back to Europe for further MBT Immersives in 2020!
Lumley Castle has a total of 73 unique bedrooms spread over three areas. There are rooms in the castle, in the courtyard annex which used to be the castle stables and in the castle mews. All the bedrooms are en-suite and beautifully decorated to an extremely high standard with furnishings which evoke a period of a bygone era – elegant drapes, four poster beds, feature baths and rooms with stunning views over the surrounding parkland. At Lumley Castle, the practical meets the unusual and the historical meets the present – ensuring a stay that you will never forget.
In addition, a number of the bedrooms do have two twin beds in them so we can offer shared accommodation at the double occupancy rate. You can bring a friend with you or we can pair you up with a room mate
All meals, snacks and drinks are included with the MBT Immersive Experience. Lumley Castle has a distinguished catering team so you can be assured of great food and that any dietary requirements you may have will be well catered for. The first meal will be dinner on the day of arrival. Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be served over the next four days. Breakfast will be served buffet style in the hotel's award winning Black Knight restaurant, lunch will be taken buffet style in one of the function rooms and a full-service dinner will be served in a different function room. There will be a gala dinner on the final evening.
The final meal will be breakfast on the last morning.
There will be snacks such as fresh fruit and nuts available throughout the day. Bottles of still and sparkling water along with a selection of juices will be available at all times along with tea or coffee. Because of the nature of the experience, soft drinks and alcohol will NOT be served. We strongly recommend that you refrain from drinking these kinds of beverages while you are with us!
If you will be flying in to join us your nearest major airport will be Newcastle International which is located 18 miles away from the castle. Driving time is about 25 minutes depending on traffic. If you wish to rent a car, there is plenty of parking at the castle.
We will be providing one coach transfer in each direction to and from Newcastle International airport airport for those that need it. It is estimated that the pick up service will depart from the airport at 3.30pm on the day of arrival and depart from the castle at 10.30am on the day of departure, so we suggest you try to plan your trip to arrive in Newcastle late morning or early afternoon on the day of arrival and then plan to get to the airport for your flight home sometime around noon on the day of departure.
Both of the MBT Immersives at Lumley Castle will follow the same itineraries as the immersives at the cabin in the USA. When you first arrive at the castle, you will be given an mp3 player that has been preloaded with new binaural beats that Tom will have created especially for these Immersive Experiences. These binaural beats will not be available anywhere else. This mp3 player will be your key to accessing each of the exercise sessions that Tom has devised for the experience. This mp3 player will be yours to keep.
You will arrive at the castle from 4pm and settle into your bedrooms before joining Tom for dinner. After dinner, Tom will give an introduction to the program he has devised before you go straight into your first exercise. The next three days will follow the same routine. Breakfast will be served at 8am, exercises and discussions will take you through to lunch at 1pm. There will be period od down time each afternoon before the exercises recommence. Dinner will be served around 6pm. There will be plenty of time for Q & A after dinner each evening. The immersive will finish after breakfast on the final morning when we all say our fond farewells.
