Return to the golden age of rail travel as you journey, first class, between the capitals of England and Scotland to commemorate HM The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
In London, discover the royal connections of Mayfair at Brown’s Hotel when you spend two nights in the Dover Suite. With Blue Badge expert Sophie Malerba as your guide, explore the gilded palaces and storied shops of St. James, many proud owners of a Royal Warrant.
Return to Brown’s and settle into the atmospheric Donovan Bar for a carefully crafted Jubilee cocktail, created in honour of the occasion. Alternatively, take tea for two in The Drawing Room and Time Travel Through Tea, pouring over memorable moments of the past 70 years.
Wave goodbye to the big smoke and board the train to Scotland with a picnic of treats to ensure you arrive - fully sated - at Edinburgh’s Waverley Station, where our concierge will be waiting to greet you.
At The Balmoral, the Bowes-Lyon Suite will be your elegant base, where you will be served a full Scottish breakfast each morning. You’ll need your energy for a very exclusive after-hours private tour of the Royal Yacht Britannia, now retired following 44 years of royal service. Enjoy the red carpet treatment at this floating palace, stepping on board via the entrance previously reserved for The Queen and close family.
Back on dry land, steady your sea legs with a gin and Dubonnet aperitif - a nod to the Queen Mother’s favourite cocktail - before a three course dinner at Brasserie Prince. Finally, as your Jubilee journey comes to a close, you’ll be given a bottle of The Balmoral’s own-label Scottish gin, ‘Baile Mhoireil’, to take with you. The moniker of this locally made gin means ‘Majestic Dwelling’ - an appropriate way, we feel, to salute Her Majesty and foster fond memories of your Great British Jubilee adventure.
