Claridge’s, the 5-star hôtel chic, in the heart of Mayfair, the place to be for grand English style, timeless glamour and impeccable personalised service.
London’s art deco jewel, is home to some of London’s finest rooms and suites. From the creative cuisine of Davies And Brook - the sublime gastronomic restaurant helmed by American chef Daniel Humm - to mouth-watering afternoon tea in the Foyer & Reading Room; vintage champagnes to sip in the Fumoir and, cocktails/mocktails and nibbles in Claridge’s Bar, all part of the hotel’s unique splendour and charm.
If a visit to Claridge’s is not possible, due to Covid-19, consider ordering via the exclusive luxury of the e-boutique stocked with marvellous gift ideas - the Claridge’s Christmas magic will rub off like stardust onto you, your family and friends.
The online shop features the hotels’ signatures including Claridge’s Christmas Pudding - handmixed according to a secret 100 year old recipe - presented in a lovely china bowl, wrapped in muslin, boxed and ribboned with care. Claridge’s monochrome chevron Christmas crackers are stuffed with surprises inspired by the hotel’s heritage and charming historic Claridge’s mottos and messages.
For a taste of the authentic English Christmas traditional hampers are essential - Mews, Davies, Mayfair are packed with everything you’ll need for the festive season. From £125-£750. There’s something exciting for everyone.
Why not book for Christmas? Toast the beginning of your stay (from £3,315 for 3 nights) in an elegant room or suite, with a bottle of champagne on arrival and festive goodies. Magical touches are traditional English breakfast, a visit from Father Christmas, festive carol singing, a celebratory Christmas lunch at Davies And Brook.
And, cherry on the gateau, a horse-drawn carriage ride around Mayfair, this is Christmas by Claridge’s. See you there!
