This may offer you an insight as to what's available....

True. I spent a year in the UK after my dad died and I wanted to make sure no make sure we got no squatters in the flat that I owned. A year later returning with more than airline allowance of baggage I looked into it. The cost then (1993) was about 1300 quid and it would take three weeks to get from the UK back to Canada. When I balked at the price, he said, "Yes, but you dine with the officers every night". I grew up in Tilbury Docks and my Dad was a traffic superintendent, so I said "no thanks" to that and went by air!
