Found in Sloane Square, just a quick stroll from the Hotel is The General Trading Company - founded in 1920 by the Part family and occupied premises in Grantham Place, off Park Lane W1. The GTC is a British icon and here, you can find an eclectic mix of gift ideas, ranging from furniture and bathroom merchandise, to clothing, children's toys, jewelry, stationary and beauty products.
If being indoors (and warm) is more your cup of tea, take a look at one of London's theaters to see a traditional Christmas pantomime, or visit one of the many pubs offering warming, festive food and of course, mulled wine. The young ones definitely won't miss out either; Santa himself will be making appearances at Self ridges, Harrods and Hamleys.
With its beautifully Italian decor and relaxed home-away-from-home ambience, the San Domenico House 'Christmas for Couples' shopping package includes three nights accommodation for £800 which includes a discount voucher to shop at The GTC; a room upgrade, daily Continental breakfast, late check out, a site-seeing tour of London and an afternoon tea for two - valid for stays from 9th December 2009 to 6th January 2010.
Whilst in London, why not take advantage of the many festive activities in the City. Located all over London, ice rinks stay open late into the evening, allowing you to whiz around with friends and family, or watch one of many shows and on-ice pantomimes. Trafalgar Square is another key location with its huge 20 meter Norwegian Christmas tree and spectacular lights.
A prime shopping destination whenever in London should always be Harrods - it is one of those amazing London landmarks rather than just any old department store. Much of the interior is beautifully decorated - be sure to visit the Food Hall, with its incredible decor and extravagant (and expensive) offerings. The store has a famous Winter sale (which is always opened by a celebrity; it starts a few days after Christmas and goes on into January) which is a handy time for grabbing a bargain!
San Domenico House is offering couples and families a fantastic festive package and to make the Christmas shopping even easier, the Hotel has teamed up with local retailer, The General Trading Company (GTC); offering guests up to 30% discount.
The 'Christmas for Families' shopping package includes two rooms for three nights for £760 per room, which includes a discount voucher to shop at The GTC, a room upgrade, daily Continental breakfast, late check out, a site-seeing tour of London and one afternoon tea for four people at the Hotel - valid for stays from 9th December 2009 to 6th January 2010.
