May is filled with many things: blooming flowers, bursts of sunshine and the birthday of the Queen of England! Her Royal Highness’ celebration is extra special this year as 2016 marks her 90th birthday, and this enormous historical event is attracting visitors from all over the world to the London area. Whether you are looking for a place to stay while you take part in the celebration, or you just need an excuse to make a detour to the UK, a Dorchester Collection property is the perfect fit for a royal stay. Treat yourself to a weekend (or longer) living like a queen at their London or Ascot property. We’ve gone ahead and outlined a few specials you won’t want to miss!
The Queen’s 90th Birthday Celebration Special at The Dorchester is a four-day weekend of festivities from May 12th to May 15th and from June 10th to June 12th. During the month of May, the Queen and her family members will be attending a pageant celebrating the Queen’s life on the Windsor’s Castle ground. Then, during the month of June, the Queen will be attending more celebratory events in central London. Enjoy a weekend of luxury accommodation and English breakfast for two and a special edition Dorchester Blend tea caddy.
The Dorchester will also be hosting a pop-up tea experience at this year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show, which conveniently takes place the same month as the royal birthday, so why not extend the trip a little longer? At the flower show from May 24th to May 28th, enjoy tea, exquisite pastries and a glass of champagne or sparkling wine surrounded by exquisite flower arrangements. All floral decorations have been carefully designed by The Dorchester’s florist, Philip Hammond. Your palette will be satiated with a selection of French pastries and traditional Dorchester sandwiches and scones. Those unable to make it to this year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show can still enjoy the signature floral tea service and desserts at The Dorchester with the Chelsea Flower Show Tea Service, available from May 23rd to May 29th.
A Royal Celebration at Coworth Park is a sight not to be missed this May. From May 12th to 15th the birthday celebrations of the Queen will be taking place within the private grounds of Windsor Castle featuring a multitude of live bands, dancers and equestrian displays. Tickets for the event may have sold out, but Coworth Park has kept aside a limited number of tickets for this spectacular overnight experience. Your royal celebration package includes luxury accommodation, English breakfast, champagne afternoon tea and tickets to the concerts (including private transfers) all for two. Let the royal celebrations begin!
