Culture Breaks


Culture Breaks is a unique holiday experience for history and food fans. Visit our extraordinary historic palaces and explore the theme of royal food and drink in style. 


Indulge in a Culture Break - Sunday 19 March to Friday 24 March 2017

Are you looking for a holiday that mixes culture and learning with exclusive access to some of the greatest palaces ever built? Or a special gift for the ultimate history-lover? This is the perfect way to immerse yourself in London’s history over one, fun-filled week.

Each day you’ll visit a different site and enjoy private guided tours, expert lectures, tasting workshops inspired by historic food and drink and explore areas of the palaces usually restricted from the public.

This event is limited to 40 adults to ensure that you are given the VIP treatment.

You will also have some free time to explore the palaces at your leisure and a recommendation of optional evening activities will be sent to you in advance so you can make the most of your stay in London.

Tickets include:

  • Transportation from the Tower of London to the other palaces each day, all expert talks, tours, admission, tastings, tea/coffee, one group lunch and one group dinner.

  • 1 year’s membership to Historic Royal Palaces (which entitles you to discounts in the shop, restaurants and future events). This will be valid from one month before the event so you can explore at your leisure.

  • An exclusive discount at Grange City Hotel with free upgrade and breakfast included. See more information here.

  • A recommended reading list and background information to whet your appetite for what’s to come. This will be posted to you in January 2017 along with your week’s schedule

  • Event Manager who will oversee the daily activities and answer any queries
