In anticipation of the upcoming film adaptation of Downton Abbey, Hotel Cafe Royal is offering a "Royal Package".
LUXE Travellers will enjoy two nights in one of Hotel Café Royal’s suites, along with two activity-filled days. First, LUXE Travellers will tour Highclere Castle—the main setting of Downton Abbey, home of the Crawley family. LUXE guests will be taken around in their own private Rolls Royce or helicopter for the day and will return to Hotel Café Royal for a cup of afternoon tea with a bottle of champagne at the property’s Oscar Wilde Lounge.
The next day, LUXE Travellers will embark on a chauffeur-driven tour of Mayfair of British institutions Burberry, Fortnum & Mason, Prestat and Penhaligon’s. Each holds the London Royal Warrant and are approved suppliers to the British royal family.
For a change of pace, St James’ Park, next to Buckingham Palace, will be available to enjoy a Butler’s picnic and champagne in the grounds of Marlborough House, the birthplace of King George V, who may be a character in the upcoming film. That evening, LUXE guests can attend a private cocktail masterclass at Hotel Café Royal’s Green Bar where they'll learn how to make vintage drinks.
At the end of the package, LUXE guests will learn how to behave in an Edwardian way: including making conversation and the correct handling of flatware.
The Royal Package also includes a copy of Downton Abbey cookbook and cocktail book, daily breakfast and a complimentary mini-bar (excluding alcohol).
