With London aglow under the twinkling Christmas lights, what better time to visit and explore the city.
Shop ‘Til You Drop
The shops are oozing with treats and we definitely believe that it’s essential to spoil yourself as well as those you hold dear.
Start in the shopping district with the bustle of Oxford Street, Regent Street and Bond Street before making your way over to the ever so charming Covent Garden and Seven Dials. After all those hours shopping, retreat to St Martins Lane where you can sit back and relax over Narnia-inspired Afternoon Tea in The Den.
Christmas is Coming
The festive season at Sanderson welcomes Willy Wonka and his chocolate factory for an indulgent Christmas. To discover more, click here.
The magic of Narnia can be discovered at St Martins Lane, in the heart of Covent Garden, transporting visitors into the depths of the White Witch’s Winter. To discover more, click here.
Scripts have been rehearsed and routines perfected as the theatre doors open to many spectacular productions – Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake at Sadler’s Wells, The Nutcracker at the London Coliseum, and Snow White at the London Palladium.
Sea Containers restaurant, Asia de Cuba restaurant, and The Restaurant at Sanderson all make for a desirable setting for a pre-theatre meal or perhaps you would prefer a post-theatre tipple in Long Bar, Blind Spot or World’s Best Bar, Dandelyan. Whichever you decide, you’ll be guaranteed a jolly good time.
Immerse yourself in the festive spirit and stroll the many Christmas markets. Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park offers 200 wooden cabins offering a range of gifts, from crafts to jewellery. Southbank Centre’s Winter Festival transforms the South Bank with wooden chalets selling mulled wine and gorgeous stocking fillers. If you’re looking for an intimate Christmas market experience head over to Leicester Square to browse 25 traditional stalls filled with a wonderful selections of gifts.
Burnt Brussels sprouts and turkey induced anxiety? Not fun for anyone, especially at Christmas. Ditch the cooking worries and let us take care of everything.
If you’re looking for something unique this year, try Asia de Cuba’s chino-latino Christmas Day menu, which includes The Crispy Calamari Salad, Tamarind-Glazed Salmon and delicious Mexican Doughnuts. Or you can opt for the traditional Roasted Norfolk Turkey with all the trimmings, if you prefer.
Over in The Restaurant at Sanderson, there’s a 3-course menu to savour complete with a matching wine flight for each course.
Down on the South Bank, join in the festivities at Mondrian London and indulge in the specially curated Christmas Feast menu which will be available throughout the Christmas period.
New Year’s Eve
We love New Year’s Eve and pride ourselves on our legendary parties. We’ve got an array of offerings for eating, drinking and dancing until dawn.
Dust off your dancing shoes and head over to Blind Spot, don your favourite party outfit and dance your way into Rumpus Room, or end the year in the iconic Long Bar at Sanderson, as you say goodbye to 2018 and wave hello to 2019 in style.
We hope you have a wonderful Christmas and New Year and look forward to spending 2019 with you.
Happy New Year! Here’s to a year of adventures, new challenges and achievements.
