When it comes to hotel packages, some people like a trip to the theatre. Some enjoy restaurant deals, while others want a spa package. But if you’re a lover of the arts and culture, a visit to one of London’s fantastic museums or galleries is often the better option.
If you’re planning to see a special exhibition this summer, a hotel package that includes tickets is appealing. You can guarantee a visit on the day you want, complete with a great deal on your hotel and sometimes other perks too. Check out our top picks for summer 2016…
Georgia O’Keeffe at the Tate Modern with Mondrian London
The Georgia O’Keeffe exhibition is one of the largest at the Tate Modern this year, giving visitors the opportunity to see more than 100 of the artist’s works. Well known for her paintings of flowers and other natural occurrences, from animal skulls to desert landscapes, O’Keeffe is responsible for the most expensive painting by a female artist ever sold at auction. The piece, ‘Jimson Weed/White Flower No. 1′, is part of the exhibit, which began on July 6th and runs to October 30th 2016.
Mondrian London at Sea Containers is offering a package that includes two tickets to the exhibition. The one-night stay also includes two ‘Jimson Blossom’ cocktails, inspired by O’Keeffe.
