Indulge in a delicious afternoon tea freshly prepared by William Drabble, the hotel’s Michelin starred Executive Chef, including all the classic elements - wafer thin sandwiches with a variety of fillings, the lightest scones with rich strawberry preserve and thick clotted cream and a selection of mouth watering cakes and pastries…. And a VIP card which will entitle you to a 10% discount at the nearby Liberty and at the majority of shops in the Burlington Arcade.

Liberty is situated in the heart of London since 1875, and it is one of the greatest emporiums for fashion, design, and beauty to this day. Explore five floors of fashion, beauty, accessories, home wares and antique furniture, as well as their new Little Liberty children’s wear department and their famous ‘Brilliantly British’ range.

The Burlington Arcade has been heralded as an historic and architectural masterpiece and a true luxury landmark in London ever since it was first unveiled to great acclaim in 1819. Today, diamonds flash in both antique and contemporary settings alongside the warmer glow of pearls and other rare gemstones, vintage watches mark the passage of time alongside a striking rainbow of the finest leather accessories, gleaming silver, writing materials, bespoke footwear and the melting softness of cashmere.

Please note that 12.5% discretionary service charge will be added to your bill. Your VIP card is not valid in the following shops at the Burlington Arcade: Laduree, Jimmy Choo, Globe trotter, David Duggan, Nourbel, Crockett and Jones, Vibrequin, Berk and Lulu Guinness.
