With Christmas just around the corner the excitement is building, and families across the UK will be busy planning shopping trips to Christmas markets and visits to Christmas lights to get into the festive spirit. But if you're looking for something new to experience this Christmas then read on, as we have something truly magical in store for you and your family!
We're hiring: trial our Christmas grotto package
Visiting a Christmas grotto is another excellent way to add a little holiday magic, so we’re offering the chance to stay in a one-of-a-kind Premier Inn grotto overnight!
If staying in a festive wonderland sounds like a dream job to you, then you and your family can apply to stay the night and test out a magical Premier Inn Christmas Grotto this Christmas.
As part of this special Christmas Grotto package in London, you will enjoy a trip to Hyde Park’s Winter Wonderland and a private tour of the capital in a black cab, followed by an overnight stay in our Christmas Grotto at the Premier Inn London Farringdon hotel.
Our exclusive Christmas Grotto hotel room at Premier Inn promises an exceptional festive getaway, complete with a variety of holiday-themed delights.
Guests can revel in matching family pyjamas, enjoy a delightful hot chocolate station, and indulge with Baylis & Harding seasonal toiletries.
Adjacent to this enchanting space lies the entrance to a magical Grotto room adorned with a beautifully decorated Christmas tree and a creative station for crafting cherished keepsakes as mementoes of your visit. As an extra special surprise, Santa may have tucked some additional treats beneath the tree, too!
