Winter Festivities in London

With its lights and decorations, London is a magical place at Christmas. However, it's not just for the 25th December that the capital is lit up for winter.

Then it's all about the lead-up to the main event, as the Christmas party season gets into full swing and the city streets are abuzz with communal ice rinks and winter markets.

During Halloween, prepare for revelers and outlandish costumes. Bonfire Night is a family affair as fireworks light up the city, while our American cousins' wholesome celebration of Thanksgiving is a firm fixture on the calendar.

The fun doesn't stop on Boxing Day. Sparkling parties abound on New Year's Eve; followed by the poetic sophistication of Burns Night; while Chinese New Year sees London's Chinatown play host to an all-consuming parade and extravagant feasts.

Let the festivities commence!

At The Kensington, we are perfectly positioned to enjoy the best London has to offer this winter. From the Natural History Museum's famous ice rink to Hyde Park's spectacular Winter Wonderland, the festivities play out on our doorstep.

With carol concerts in local churches and musical extravaganzas at the Royal Albert Hall, there is a local feel to the celebrations here, dusted with a sprinkling of elegance and refinement.

We like to think the same goes for The Kensington. Formerly four 19th-century townhouses, the hotel sets a stately tone, mirrored by its heritage d?cor and warmly welcoming fireplaces; a warmth that is matched in the service ethos of our attentive yet discreet staff, on hand to ensure your celebrations are flawlessly fabulous.

We invite you to host your very own house party in our home-away-from-home, whether it's a private dinner in Town House, with its modern mix of seasonal and locally-sourced dishes, or an intimate drinks reception in our cosy K Bar. Or perhaps you'd like to make The Kensington your festive residence ? if so, you'll find rooms and suites that blend contemporary comfort with a classic Victorian townhouse feel.

Whatever your reason for celebrating ? from Thanksgiving to Burns Night ? discover the welcoming embrace of our hotel this season.

Dine in style

Town House restaurant lives up to its name with three individually decorated, interconnecting rooms ensuring a vibrant, communal feel. Festive groups can hire one or more of these individual spaces for private dining and events. The intimacy of The Library, with its bookcases and characterful collectables provides a cultured backdrop for cocktail receptions, while the expansive feel of The White Room, with its colourful furnishings and open fireplace, makes a stylish venue for private dinners.

Whichever space you choose, you'll find the elegance reflected in the artistic presentation of the dishes served. Softly lit by candles and fireplaces, the atmosphere of Town House complements the refined ambience of the adjoining K Bar, perfect for pre- or post-dinner drinks; its leather-panels, green marble top bar, and gently-lit lamps reminiscent of an exclusive private members' club.


Christmas celebrations

If you're planning a rousing festive party for friends or colleagues or looking to enjoy an intimate Christmas Day lunch or dinner with the family, our festive menu is a celebration of fresh, seasonal food.

In the lead up to Christmas, our indulgent three-course menu is perfect for festive gatherings. Traditional dishes come with a modern twist ? such as roast breast of Gressingham goose served with apricot sausage roll, marinated salmon and caviar; and lemon basked Alaska.

Meanwhile, for drinks parties, we offer a selection of festive canap?s ? imagine Champagne & truffle arancini; crispy pork belly and lobster tortilla ? ensuring partygoers are well looked after.

Our six-course Christmas Day banquet is a modern rendering of classic British fare with roast bronze turkey with apricot stuffing. For those looking to venture beyond the traditional, there's Scottish venison and Atlantic halibut. Potted crab and sirloin steak tagliata are among the decadent starters, while desserts span from vanilla & orange bread and butter pudding to Christmas pudding, with an extra helping of brandy sauce.
