The Beaumont: Christmas Away

Enjoy a totally relaxing Christmas this year: all you have to do is turn up. Envelop yourself in a cosy, candle-lit world of vintage movies, mulled wine, home-made mince pies, and traditional (as well as some non) Christmas dishes. Escape to the Spa, explore the once-a-year-quiet streets of historic Mayfair in our vintage Daimler and ease yourself into an effortless celebration of Christmas this year.

The Beaumont heralds a return to the pre-war elegance of Mayfair hotels. Jeremy King and Chris Corbin have created a truly independent, distinctive hotel based on the classic values of a golden age of personalised hospitality. Centrally located in Mayfair and overlooking Brown Hart Gardens, The Beaumont features The Colony Grill Room, an American Bar, The Cub Room – a Resident’s Lounge and Bar, The Lotos Room – a private dining and board room, and a gymnasium and spa with hamam. The hotel was named the AA HOTEL OF THE YEAR – London in 2016.
