It goes without saying that 2012 was a big year for London, what with the summer Olympics and the 50th anniversary of James Bond and all. But just because it's a new year doesn't mean there's not a ton to do across the pond. And you can win a trip to the notoriously expensive city, with a little help from a Corgi named Rufus.
The folks behind VisitLondon.com are running a vacation giveaway through London, Now See It For Yourself. To enter, visit the website every week thru March 25th and catch a video of Rufus the Corgi on his adventures through London. Then, follow @FindRufus on Twitter where three clues will be revealed per week to help you track down where he is on the website's interactive map. There will be a new winner every week, with six five-night trips up for grabs, each based around a theme—Romantic London, Foodie London, Active London, Royal London, Film London, and Fashion London. This week's theme is Romantic London, and the winner gets a trip for two that includes round-trip airfare, five nights at the Cavendish Hotel, a ride on the London Eye (with Champagne), two tickets to the West End musical The Bodyguard, a three-course dinner at Kettner's Restaurant, a VIP tour of the Royal Academy of Arts, a bus tour of London by night, and a trip to the May Fair Spa. Not too shabby.
Rufus' location on the map will be updated every Monday, so check back each week for new clues and another chance to win the next week's prize trip.
