British Rugby Fans to Marlborough
Calling all British Lions Fans
The British and Irish Lions are coming !
In less than a year, New Zealand will be swarming with British Lions fans. Of course, the focus of your stay will be the various games of rugby scattered throughout our 2 large islands, but there is lots of time to enjoy yourselves in between games. Our main centers will be overflowing, but places like Marlborough are ready to show the Brits what the true New Zealand is all about.
Marlborough is most famous for the vineyards in the surrounding Wairau valley and the dominant product is our world renown Sauvignon Blanc wines. Even the French cannot compete in blind tastings ( a bit like their rugby !).
All rugby fans are encouraged to visit Marlborough in between games and where better to base yourselves for the games in Wellington at the end of June. Our accommodation is more affordable than Wellington and we are a 25 minute flight away for the games. Alternatively, the ferry link through the stunning Queen Charlotte Sound, can take hundreds to and from each game.
Come and enjoy our hospitality and wine and we even have 2 breweries to cater for the die-hard hops fans. The Jade Owl B and B is ready to join our motels and hotels in offering affordable, comfortable beds for weary British fans, struggling to come to terms with the enormity of the All Black challenge !
Come to Marlborough – spoil yourselves.
