Dome is where the heart is – in this gorgeous Kensington garden.
You can barely move for igloos in London over the Christmas period, but these installations in South Kensington must rank as some of the prettiest out there. So cosy!
Each of the five luxurious hemispheres can accommodate up to twelve people, making them perfect for get-togethers with friends, family reunions or festive team events. Some are set up for dinner, while others offer cosy sofas for drinks and chats.
When it comes to dining, the on-site chefs are pulling out all the stops. You can embrace tradition with their Christmas Party menu, with turkey paupietes, pigs-in-blankets and Christmas pudding among the classic dishes. Or, if you’re simply too stuffed with stuffing this December, indulge in the five-course pan-Asian tasting menu, with Thai curries, lychee & mango salads, and other aromatic dishes to bring the heat.
Or, stop by in the afternoon for a sophisticated afternoon tea!
The domes are available to hire through the winter – up until the end of March 2019 in fact. But they’re sure to be in hot demand in the run-up to Christmas, so make a date with your nearest and dearest, and book in when you can. Reservations come with a minimum group spend from £180, which is payable in advance, and then subtracted from your final bill.
