Unless you’re in the market for lost luggage, cancelled flights and serious airport hold-ups, you might be considering a getaway a little closer to home this year. For those with staycations in mind, luxury Grade II listed Great Northern Hotel, a Tribute Portfolio Hotel in the heart of King’s Cross, has just the ticket – a brand new, quintessentially British punting package that combines the best of the city with the countryside.
Available throughout the summer in partnership with Let’s Go Punting, the new Great Northern Hotel x Let’s Go Punting package is perfect for those looking for a change of scene and a slice of fun, without the travel aggro. Check in to your beautiful bedroom at the landmark property – the capital’s oldest railway hotel – and collect your punting provisions – some fizz and a selection of tasty nibbles.
Next, head down to King’s Cross station and make the short, 50-minute train journey to the historic city of Cambridge and the famous river Cam, where you’ll enjoy a 50-minute private chauffeured punting experience. Touring the city from the comfort of the water, you’ll have a chance to peruse the famous College backs and take in the sights of the majestic King’s College Chapel, the Bridge of Sighs and The Wren Library.
After the cruise, explore Cambridge at leisure on foot, before returning to London and the hotel for a restful night’s sleep in one of the hotel’s beautiful bedrooms. Guests will also have access to the vibrant and buzzy GNH Bar, the al fresco Terrace and the cosy Snug Bar and Lounge – perfect for sundowners and nightcaps.
Come morning, breakfast for two at the hotel’s restaurant Plum + Split Milk is also included with a full range of cooked and continental choices, from pancakes with maple syrup and crispy bacon through to a full English, and the plum crunch pot with Greek yoghurt and seasonal fruits.
The package is priced from £439 for one night, or from £679 for two nights, based on double occupancy, and includes the punting experience, punting snacks and breakfast. Train tickets aren’t included but can be booked in advance or purchased at the station on the day.
