We’ve started to see the blooms of daffodils at nearby Hyde Park which can only mean one thing… spring is finally on its way!

There’s no better place to enjoy special time with the family than London; from zooming up The Shard to catching a big musical or climbing around the deck of an old warship, the city has an adventure for everyone.

And to make your trip that little bit more special we will be decking the hotel out in flowers and Easter finery and with our Easter at The Connaught package you will enjoy champagne and exciting Easter treats in your room on arrival.

This spring we will be opening our doors to a new restaurant in the conservatory by world-renowned chef, Jean-Georges Vongerichten.

Not only will Jean-George be sourcing all the best of British ingredients but his signature style menu will feature his take on all the country’s classic dishes, from fish and chips to traditional afternoon tea, influenced by his earlier working life and love of London.

Art has long since been a passion of The Connaught and we are delighted to be working with Freize Academy with a six-part course offering guidance on how to start or grow an art collection.

Curated by Frieze Academy as part of its programme of talks, workshops, symposia and short courses exploring all aspects of the worlds of art and culture.

The sessions will be hosted by art advisor Pernilla Holmes and held at The Connaught and Claridge’s.

Christmas has arrived at The Connaught with our beautiful Christmas tree, by acclaimed British sculptor Antony Gormley.
The magnificent Western Red Cedar tree sourced from Shropshire stands 17.5m tall on Carlos Place. Its trunk has been transformed into a tapering column of brilliant light across which dance its branches and foliage.

This tree marks the start of an exciting festive season on Mount Street.

If you are planning on shopping until you drop during your stay with us this Christmas, then you might like to treat yourself to Aman Spa’s new pampering treat – Winter Sole Treatment.

Especially designed to keep your feet strong and your toes sparkling for the festive season, it combines the therapeutic effects of reflexology, a pedicure and a one-on-one mindfulness meditation with an Aman therapist.

Standing guard outside our hotel entrance at the moment is a sculpture by renowned Irish artist Sean Scully.

The elegant yet imposing piece, titled Tower, is in partnership with the neighbouring Timothy Taylor gallery, which is currently presenting Horizon, an exhibition of new paintings from Sean Scully’s Landline.

The exhibition runs from November 2 – December 17, 2016 and we welcome you to Mount Street to see ‘Tower’ for yourself.
