Cap a memorable year for London with a visit to the city to experience one of the fabulous festive packages available at Jumeirah Carlton Tower and Jumeirah Lowndes Hotel, official hotel partner of the Natural History Museum’s ice rink.
An oasis in Belgravia, Jumeirah Lowndes Hotel is minutes from London’s most beautiful ice skating rink at the Natural History Museum. To celebrate the hotel’s involvement as the official hotel partner for the 2012/13 ice-skating season, Jumeirah Lowndes Hotel is introducing the Spirit of Christmas package (from £370 per room per night*). The unique festive offering begins with a bespoke candle-making course with Rachel Vosper, one of the UK’s leading chandlers. Students select a scent from Vosper’s extensive fragrance library to create a unique Christmas gift. After the candle-making course guests are invited to enjoy a Winter Warmer Cocktail at Lowndes Bar & Kitchen, the perfect tipple to warm you through before taking a stroll to the Natural History Museum Ice Rink to enjoy an evening of ice-skating.
For those who wish to explore all the sights of London but would like to visit the Natural History Museum Ice Rink, the Skate & Stay package (from £240 per room per night*) is also available, including a pair of skating tickets, overnight accommodation at Jumeirah Lowndes Hotel and full English breakfast.
