Now we’re settled in our new London home, we’re picking up the buzz of the various events that make this city so special. One of the big events on the London calendar is London Fashion Week which is attended by over 5,000 press and buyers and starts on the 17th September. According to the British Fashion Council these visitors place orders of over £100m but this week also generates over £30m for the London economy.
As you can imagine, it’s an interesting time for our London hotels who are often busy with visitors looking for quiet city sanctuaries to escape from the hustle of the shows and parties. Many Fashion Week visitors are also interested in hitting the shops with Knightsbridge proving a popular base due to the proximity of Harrods, Harvey Nichols and many smaller designer boutiques. If you are still looking to secure a room in this area, The Capital Hotel has a ‘fashion week special offer’ with a few rooms still available. Just around the corner is the The Levin with personal in-room champagne bars for those wanting to start the party early in their rooms!
For those looking to stay nearer the famous shopping streets of Oxford Circus and Regent Street, we have the The Arch, the St James’s Hotel and Club and Dorset Square. And equidistant to Bond Street, Knightsbridge or The King’s Road, we have The Goring in Victoria.
Even if you’re not connected with the fashion industry, these hotels are perfect places to break away from a shopping trip for some afternoon tea or something a bit stronger. Whether you’re a guest or just popping in, you’re sure to get a warm welcome.
