THE SAVOY HOTEL

Hi everyone, I hope everyone in the UK has had a great bank holiday weekend, I have been totally lazy (it doesn't happen often!)

So as promised the second part of that amazing day I had last week at the F&F press event at The Savoy. I had to take some pic's the place is so breathtaking. Firstly this is what I wore....




Another Primark shirt, this time in cream, so comfortable and not too clingy. I am loving the colour of these trousers from Next, like a salmon pink colour. And in my bag is a cream pashmina, pure cashmere for softness. I know they are not so bang on trend now, but I still love them, and they can be folded up and put in your handbag = easy


I bought this necklace from F&F it was in the sale for £6.00 it's beautiful on and tied in with the colour of the trousers.

I  took  quite a few pictures while at the hotel, but have grabbed a couple from Pinterest. I didn't get a picture of the outside in all it's splendour as it was so busy. So here is where I will begin


I would like to have arrived in style, in this Roller, but the good old London bus was good enough for me! I love it when you are greeted by doormen on arrival, a nice start


I thought I would pop to the loo once in there, a huge room, literally the size of my flat! The poshest loo's I have ever been in! This is a seated area within that room, with a beautiful wall Murial. Extravagant toiletries and mini hand towels you toss into a bin.



                                             Well I had to take a selfie in there didn't I !


                   A beautiful arrangement of Orchids in the foyer were simple but stunning

         
      It has it's own little shop in the foyer. You can buy cakes and delicacies




There are Lot's of glazed cabinets dotted around the foyer, full of tempting treats to help empty the bank balance. Jewels, shoes and beauty products. The little Boodles boutique was my favourite, 




I grabbed this picture from Pinterest. The dining area was busy, and I would have felt rude to be taking pictures. It is soo stunning


I did grab a shot of this meeting room though. I bet a few important meetings have taken place in there!


The hotel is adorned with massive chandeliers everywhere


I have taken this picture from pinterest, to give some idea of what it is like for Afternoon Tea

 It was on my bucket list to go there for tea but I can tick that off now. After moving to London I have a huge list of places to go so watch this space!



Here is what my table was like on the day,  lovely finger foods, and as good as afternoon tea I'm sure. Chrystal glasses, fine china and silver cutlery



Everything is large, and grand , the finest materials used, and steeped in traditional British glamour.I heard a quote "Diamonds are a girls best friend, but a stay at The Savoy surely comes in a close second" And I have to say I agree with that. I would love to plonk myself in one of the chairs there and people watch, I could do that all day long! If your ever in London and looking and looking for somewhere special to go for an afternoon, I couldn't recommend The Savoy enough

Are there any other places you can recommend for me to go to in London? Do tell, I would love to hear from you

  3. Go have high tea at Claridge's! Book months in advance though; it is very popular since their high tea is one of the best in town.
