THIS COMPETITION HAS NOW CLOSED
Nestled amongst the Royal Parks and Palaces, The Stafford London is located in the heart of St James’s, in the capital. A historic gem, the five-star hotel, restaurant and bar features 380-year-old wine cellars, built in the 17th century, which run underneath the site of one of Christopher Wren’s former houses.
BRITAIN readers can enter our competition for the chance to win a two-night break for two with dinner, afternoon tea and breakfast each day at The Stafford London, plus enjoy a walking tour of London conducted by the hotel’s Executive Concierge, Frank Laino.
Founded in 1912, The Stafford London is home to 105 individually decorated bedrooms and suites split across the Main House and the Carriage House, each furbished with English décor. The Lyttelton Restaurant is open daily serving breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner with modern European dishes by Head Chef Carlos Martinez.
The American Bar at The Stafford is an institution. During the Second World War, the hotel served as a club for American and Canadian officers. Today, the bar’s collection of memorabilia is a mix of items donated by guests of the hotel started by an American who donated a carving of an eagle. Celebrity fans have also signed photos for the walls.
The Stafford Wine Cellars, built in the 17th century by Lord Francis Godolphin, house some 8,000 bottles of the finest wine. The cellars were used as an air-raid shelter in the Second World War and as visitors arrive they are greeted with artefacts from the war. The Stafford London’s Master Sommelier, Gino Nardella, oversees operations; his 40 years of experience makes for exceptional wine pairing events.
Visitors can also discover St James’s on the Discover The Secrets of St James’s tour, which takes visitors in the direction of St James’s Park – admire town houses, exclusive shops and wine merchants. The tours take place each month, are priced £35pp and last three hours.
