This Victorian masterpiece opens officially on May 5th but is all over the London news today. It has been closed for the last 77 years but after years of devoted restoration, it is being hailed as the city’s most romantic building. This London 5-star hotel features glorious Gothic Revival metalwork, gold leaf ceilings, hand-stenciled wall designs – and the grand staircase which are as dazzling as the day Queen Victoria opened the hotel in 1873. Designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott to receive travellers through St Pancras Station, the former Midland Grand Hotel offered its guests a world of grandeur, luxury and fantasy behind its fairytale red facade.
More importantly Rett UK is holding its annual fundraising dinner there on 20th May and is offering you the chance to be a part of history and one of the first to to see this exclusive 5 star landmark. There should be some suitably exclusive auction prixes to be had as well, if last year is anything to go on. Contact Stephanie Mitchell at Rett UK for more info.
