Have you ever heard of Boxing Day ? It’s an English tradition that the day after Christmas, boxes of food or gifts be given to the poor. Things however, have changed over the years. Nowadays, December 26th is the big day for sales! And so why even think about where to spend the last days of the year? London is definitely the place to be! And if you’re going to stay in London for the sales, you might as well choose a hotel in a trendy neighborhood. The mythical Connaught, Berkeley and Claridge’s are located in Mayfair and Knightsbridge, where traditional boutiques share the streets with concept stores and the shops of contemporary designers.
Each of these three member hotels of the Maybourne group offers guests an original and typically British experience for the Christmas season. On the agenda at the Connaught is riding in a horse drawn carriage with hot chocolate on Christmas Day followed by lunch at Héléne Darroze’s renowned restaurant where stockings are filled with surprises for children. A bottle of champagne awaits guests as a welcome gift for the Claridge’s Timeless Christmas. It’s a unique occasion to discover typical yuletide traditions in the heart of London, with a magnificent décor and extremely refined service.
