The festive season is the ideal time to see a magical ballet performance. There’s the classic Nutcracker, as well as other beautiful, wintry shows such as Swan Lake. If you feel like a night at the ballet this December, why not pair it with a stay in a London hotel?
With our hotel package picks, you can get tickets to see The Nutcracker, watch it in a private screening, or immerse yourself in The Corinthia’s beautiful Swan Lake theme this December.
The Real Deal at Covent Garden Hotel
The Covent Garden Hotel is offering a package that includes two tickets to The Nutcracker at the Royal Opera House.
The traditional Christmas ballet is sure to be found somewhere in London every year. This year, The Royal Ballet are celebrating choreographer Peter Wright’s 90th birthday with a performance of his production.
The hotel’s package is available on four nights in December, and also includes a Nutcracker afternoon tea, along with an overnight stay and breakfast.
On the Big Screen at The May Fair and One Aldwych
Let’s face it, December is cold. Sometimes, you just don’t want to go outside, even if it’s for a visit to the glorious Royal Opera House.
If you would rather stay warm and cosy inside, why not enjoy Tchaikovsky’s score in a luxury screening room instead. You can choose between The May Fair or One Aldwych on December 8th. While the packages only include dinner, you could easily arrange for a stay at one of the hotels too.
The May Fair is offering three sharing plates and a glass of prosecco. While at One Aldwych you get a 3-course dinner and a glass of champagne.
Magical Swan Lake at The Corinthia
If you prefer Swan Lake to The Nutcracker, The Corinthia has a festive Swan Lake theme this Christmas. Their winter offers include accommodation packages and spa packages.
There’s a Swan Lake afternoon tea, featuring Odette and Odile white chocolate and dark chocolate mousses. Guests can enjoy themed cocktails with menus in the Massimo Bar and Restaurant for Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.
Enjoy a fairytale experience at one of these top London hotels this Christmas, whether you’re watching the ballet or just having afternoon tea inspired by it.
