Entry is available for all Platinum and Centurion cardholders.  There are free drinks for all – although the champagne had run out by 5pm last night when I arrived – and there is also the odd bit of free food coming round.  Click to enlarge the pictures:

There is also a gift wrapping station and, at least yesterday, an area downstairs where you could get an airline sleep mask monogrammed!

    Hi Rob,
    If I am not a “London professional”, though I am a BA gold card member. Would you regard me as a “ core member” Incidentally I live in Wales, and the tolls on the Severn Bridges have been done away with. First time a tax going from England to Wales across the Severn estuary has not been in existence since Roman times apparently. So if you add up all that revenue, compound it, allow for inflation, especially around the time of the Black Death, it’s probably more than LV’s capitalisation. 😏. What has this got to do with points?, not much either as in your example. Accept I suppose you did get points if you used a card payment at the tolls. Though I willl admit, this would be post Roman Empire days. Incidentally, would a Roman general, who was posted to say, a fortress at Caerleon in Wales, and who had a ton of air miles be your target market even though he was not a Londinium Professional?
    Thought of the day. Does anyone know of a professional outside the M25? 🤔
