London, England – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine
The Lanesborough, London’s foremost address, introduces a summer holiday escape exclusively designed for families. From July 25th through September 5th, The Lanesborough invites families to explore the city’s storied streets and rich history, embrace Britain’s royal legacy, and indulge in all London has to offer.
Head concierge Colin Short has designed a three day “Royal Family Program” to showcase the highlights of London and Windsor, which includes chauffeured car escort to each historic location.
Day 1: The Streets of London Tour the Tower of London to see the crown jewels, visit St. Paul’s Cathedral, one of the largest cathedrals in the world and stroll the cobbled streets of Covent Garden for British hand-made arts and crafts. After a long day of sight-seeing, enjoy the award-winning Afternoon Tea at Apsleys, a Heinz Beck Restaurant, followed by a trip to the theatre to see one of London’s best musicals.
Day 2: A Royal Day Out See how the Royals live with a trip to Windsor Castle, Official Residence of Her Majesty The Queen, and Hampton Court Palace, formerly home to King Henry VIII.
Day 3: Buckingham Palace and Beyond Visit the city’s most famous landmarks, including Buckingham Palace, official London residence of the British monarch and where Prince William and Kate celebrated their wedding. Watch the Change of the Guards then enjoy breathtaking views of the city in the world’s largest moving wheel, The London Eye. Once back on land, head to the River Thames for a 40-minute circular sightseeing cruise. Finally, take a short stroll from The Lanesborough to the world’s most famous department store, Harrod’s.
The Lanesborough welcomes children with personalized gifts, daily breakfast and treats, a dedicated kids’ butler, family pajama night with popcorn and ice-cream sundaes, unlimited movies, books and games, and Sony VAIO laptops in all guestrooms.
