How would I get to this location (train? we do not have a car) from the Marriott Hotel Maida Vale in London> How can I make a reservation to take a Hacking ride on May 4th or 5th for 1 1/2 to 2 hours. I own a Paint Mare, so I am an experienced rider. Is there something my husband can do in the area - he does not ride.
