London, 20 September 2013: This winter, Grosvenor House Apartments by Jumeirah Living will celebrate Christmas by inviting families to explore London with their very own Christmas Elves. Throughout December, any luxury stay can be enhanced with an ‘Adopt a Christmas Elf’ experience; the perfect way to ensure a magical adventure packed full of treats and trips.
The ‘Adopt a Christmas Elf’ experience welcomes families to London to discover an exciting Christmas from the comfort of their luxury home away from home. Upon arrival, guests will be greeted with a delicious Festive Afternoon Tea. Thereafter, two enchanting Elves will arrive at the family’s residence each day for five days, ready to delight children and adults alike with a captivating range of activities and excursions.
No Christmas is complete without the fun of traditional decorations. On the first day of the stay, a knock on the door will reveal the family’s very own excited Elves, armed with a beautiful Christmas tree and supplies of stunning decorations. The family can relax into a cosy afternoon of traditional carols and festive stories from the Elves as they help plan and decorate the perfect tree. The next day, a pirate adventure awaits with a trip to the London Aquarium. Located on the popular South bank of the River Thames, the family will be whisked off in a private car to view one of Europe's largest collections of global marine life. With the Elves as pirate guides, mini-pirates will be introduced to fishy friends galore as they walk beneath the waves, and even swim with a shark!
The rest of the week is packed full of magic and mystery. A comical Christmas magic show will astound with incredible spells, mysterious mind control and the art of vanishing, with the opportunity for magic fans to learn the secrets themselves. Wizarding experts can then add to their knowledge with a tour of Harry Potter’s London. Discover fabulous locations from the films, such as the doorway to the Leaky Cauldron, the entrance to Platform 9 ¾ and many, many more.
On the last day of the Elf experience, the family’s new fun-loving friends will arrive with baskets full of delicate parchment paper, shiny golden letters, and pots of sparkling glitter. With the children focused on an afternoon of letter-writing to Santa, adults may wish to enjoy an in-residence spa treatment to relax. Then await the arrival of one last special visitor; Santa Claus himself, ready to personally collect any letters and wish everyone a Merry Christmas.
