5 places to watch the Royal Wedding on 19th May 2018


The Stafford London. The Stafford London in St James’s will be screening the wedding in The American Bar, The Lounge, and The Game Bird restaurant. Furthermore, they will be offering special dishes and cocktails on the day, including Grilled Dover sole with Dubonnet sauce and Boîtes des fraises Reine Elizabeth. The five-star hotel’s classic afternoon tea will also be given a celebratory twist, with sandwiches including Jam “pennies” and Coronation chicken, and sweet treats such as Victoria sponge with strawberry jam.


Royal Afternoon Tea at Emmeline’s Lounge. To honour The Royal Wedding, Emmeline’s Lounge at Conrad London St James is launching a Royal Afternoon Tea featuring quintessentially British sandwiches alongside exquisite cakes and pastries by Executive Pastry Chef Diana Sedlakova. A Hazelnut and banana veil sits elegantly alongside Diamond rings flavoured with tonka bean and strawberry, and guests will also be presented with a Lemon and elderflower lollipop in the style of a wedding favour and inspired by the flavours of Harry and Meghan’s wedding cake. The Royal Afternoon Tea will be available 14 May to 31 August, priced from £35pp. In the same spirit of regal celebration, Conrad London St James is also offering the Propose like a Prince engagement package to entice lovers to follow Prince Harry’s lead. The package includes a luxurious 2-night stay, Royal Afternoon Tea and horse-drawn carriage tour. Furthermore, two Royal Wedding cocktails will be available from the Blue Boar Bar this May, allowing guests to toast the happy couple.


Wonderful Windsor with The Goring. With the spotlight very much shining on Windsor this May, The Goring are offering guests to the five-star luxury Belgravia hotel the opportunity to visit the historic royal residence during their stay in London. The package includes a private tour of Windsor Castle, taking in the fascinating history of the beautiful town and the famous royal home. This will be followed by the chance to explore the magnificent State Apartments and Queen Mary’s Dolls’ House – the largest and most famous dolls’ house in the world. From Monday to Saturday, the tour will also include a visit to St George’s Chapel which is the spiritual home of the Order of the Garter, whilst Sunday tours will explore the Grounds and Royal Park. Returning to London, guests will spend the night at The Goring, followed by breakfast the next morning. For an even more impeccably English experience, visitors can choose to indulge in Afternoon Tea, or a Michelin-starred dinner from chef Shay Cooper in The Dining Room. From £908 for two people.


The Royal History of InterContinental London Park Lane. With its close proximity to Buckingham Palace, its Royal history, and its two fantastic restaurants that boast some of the best Mexican and Italian food in the city, InterContinental London Park Laneis the ideal hotel destination for foodies staying in London for the Royal Wedding. The five-star Mayfair hotel stands proudly on the very site of 145 Piccadilly, the Queen’s former childhood residence. Whilst the Royal abode was sadly destroyed during the blitz, its memory was not lost, and the hotel is looking forward to welcoming guests and diners at Ella Canta and Theo Randall at the InterContinental to celebrate the upcoming wedding on the very ground where Prince Harry’s grandmother spent her early years.


Bluebird Café. The celebrated Chelsea restaurant has spread its wings to the west and opened Bluebird Café at the Television Centre White City, one of London’s hottest new developments. To celebrate the Royal Wedding, the already buzzing year-round terrace (which opens out onto a piazza overlooked by the Television Centre’s famous circular core) will be decorated with traditional British bunting, whilst a special party brunch menu will feature British classics such as Eton Mess and The Ultimate Breakfast Butty alongside celebratory dishes such as Lobster Benedict. Guests can raise a glass (or two) to the happy couple by opting for the bottomless brunch menu for £15 per person.
