The Savoy — like London itself — offers several reasons to visit all year round. The hotel has a full and varied calendar of events, from cocktail master classes to dinner dances, and concierges are always on hand to suggest city tips and secrets throughout the year. However, each season does have its own particular attractions. Winter offers the opportunity to enjoy the English capital’s festive highlights — including the Christmas shopping in nearby Oxford Street and the New Years’ party in Trafalgar Square — while summer gives you the chance to partake in open-top boat cruises on the Thames and open-air concerts in Hyde Park. Spring and autumn, meanwhile, have their own charms, from the natural beauty of the city parks and gardens to the varied British festivals of St. George’s Day (April) and Guy Fawkes Night (November). Just bring an umbrella to avoid getting caught in London’s infamous rain, any time of year.
