‘British Royale’ is a remarkable journey that showcases the UK’s finest castles, pageantry and cuisine
RYE, N.Y., Nov. 28, 2017 – With yesterday’s news of Prince Harry’s engagement, last week’s 70th wedding anniversary of the Queen and Prince Philip, and the upcoming birth of a new prince or princess, royal fever is heating up in the UK!
Travelers seeking to be swept away by the opulence and pageantry of Britain’s royal heritage will enjoy Luxury Gold’s new nine-day British Royale escorted journey, which takes guests from London to Edinburgh, stopping along the way in Bath, Windsor, Stratford-upon-Avon, the Cotswolds, York, the Lake District, and Northumberland. British Royale is a journey filled with iconic sights, historic landmarks, and unforgettable VIP experiences. Guests stay in the finest, hand-picked hotels, indulge in exceptional dining, and travel in splendid luxury and style.
Royal-themed highlights of the trip include witnessing the Changing of the Guard ceremony at Buckingham Palace; meeting a military knight at Windsor Castle; exploring Edinburgh Castle on a VIP tour; learning about the Crown Jewels and Stone of Destiny with a Local Expert; and on select Chairman’s Collection departures, taking a private tour of the gardens surrounding the 11th-century Alnwick Castle with the Duchess of Northumberland.
In London, guests witness the 700-year-old Ceremony of the Keys at the Tower of London after the crowds have gone home, and are treated to a glamorous Welcome Dinner at Red Carnation’s Milestone Hotel and Residences. They also spend the night at this five-star boutique hotel, which offers 24-hour butler service and an ideal location opposite Kensington Palace and Gardens, the future home of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and the current residence of Prince William and Kate Middleton. In Bath, guests tour the original Roman Baths and Pump Room before dining at a Michelin-star restaurant. In York, guests enjoy VIP after-hours entry to Harlow Carr Gardens, a member of the Royal Horticultural Society, before taking part in a posh twilight picnic. And in Edinburgh, guests meet a professional bagpiper, who is said to have been the Queen Mother’s favorite, and listen to traditional music and fascinating tales about Scottish culture while enjoying tea and scones.
“We are thrilled to offer guests a truly extraordinary, elegant journey through Britain at a time when royal milestones have brought out the nation’s goodwill and hospitality,” said Phil Cappelli, president of Luxury Gold. “Guests get to experience the pomp and pageantry of Britain while enjoying the award-winning personal service that Luxury Gold and our Traveling Concierges are known for.”
