A small glass of Barons de Rothschild Reservé Champagne will be served to help celebrate the start of the Festive Season. Cheers!

Palm Court will be transformed into an Edwardian winter wonderland, surrounded by rich red and gold trimmings and a beautiful lavishly decorated Christmas tree in the centre of the room, making it feel enchanting.
