A stay at the five-star Corinthia Hotel London already offers an unrivalled experience in the heart of the British capital, and now guests can combine the ultimate city experience with an exclusive day-trip to a historic estate in the English countryside, all while staying at one luxurious London address. The five-star hotel has just launched day trips to The Petworth Estate in West Sussex – a historic late 17th Century mansion which houses an important collection of paintings and sculptures.
Overnight guests at Corinthia Hotel London can be transported by helicopter (in minutes) or by Range Rover (in 1 hour 15 minutes) to the exclusive estate where they can experience a day living like lords and ladies of the manor. Activities on offer include game hunting, fly fishing and deer stalking (live or simulated depending on season and experience), and participants are fitted with everything from hearing protection to cartridges and guns. Non-hunting partners can enjoy a guided tour of the ancestral 17th Century home Petworth House, which has the largest private collection of Turner paintings, horse and carriage tour through the grounds and a look around at the plethora of local antique shops.
The day-trips offer a unique experience for GCC guests travelling to London; one that enables visitors to swap views of the London Eye and River Thames, thanks to the hotel’s idyllic city-centre location and close proximity to popular tourist and shopping sites, with a historic English country escape for a day. Guests can focus on a particular sport such as fishing, game hunting or deer stalking on the day, or Corinthia can tailor-make a day’s package including a combination or only focusing on simulated sports, depending on preferences.
Packages for the Petworth Estate experience start from $5,900 including two nights’ stay at Corinthia Hotel London. For more information on Corinthia Hotel London visit their website, corinthia.com.
