3 half-term activities to make a London staycation extra special
Enjoy a Sleeping Beauty Afternoon Tea at The Dorchester
For a mummy-daughter afternoon out this half-term, The Dorchester has the ideal offering with a Sleeping Beauty Afternoon Tea. For five days only, The Dorchester is hosting a ballet-themed afternoon tea in collaboration with the English National Ballet School. Guests can watch a 20-minute ballet performance while enjoying a selection of themed pastries and sandwiches, and British ballet shoe designer French Sole will also hold a daily raffle to give young guests the chance to win a personal shopping experience in a London store to find a pair of shoes. The last day is Friday 27 October, and the afternoon tea is £68 per adult, including a glass of Laurent-Perrier NV or Cuvée Rosé champagne and £39 per child (5–12 years).
Book a riding lesson at Coworth Park
The beautiful Coworth Park, also part of The Dorchester Collection, is easy to get to from London both by car and train, and an ideal destination for escaping the city and experiencing the Berkshire countryside. The equestrian centre at Coworth Park offers riding lessons for children, and a one-hour riding lesson on a weekday starts from £65 and from £90 on a weekend. A fun activity to add to a day out or combine with lunch or afternoon tea at the luxury hotel.
Catch a stage show at one of London’s many family-friendly theatres
There are always a huge variety of family shows to choose from in London over half-term, and it is possible to get last minute tickets to many of them. See the Mummy in the City guide to what’s on stage this week HERE
