Penny Farthing and Picnic Experience

Penny Farthing and Picnic Experience

To mark the 200th anniversary of Queen Victoria's birth, Jumeirah Lowndes Hotel has partnered with Tally Ho Experiences to bring guests a taste of Victorian life. The Penny Farthing and Picnic Experience combines an al fresco feast created by the hotel’s chefs with a quintessentially Victorian past time.

Guests reserving the experience will receive a picnic hamper laden with food that is perfect for enjoying outdoors:

  • Ploughman’s sandwich with Montgomery cheddar & Branston pickle
  • Smoked gammon ham with English mustard sandwich
  • Scottish smoked salmon and cream cheese sandwich
  • British artisan cheeses, assorted crackers and bread
  • Tomato, watermelon and cucumber salad with fresh mint
  • Ham and spring onion quiche
  • Victoria sponge or apple pie or lemon tart

Having enjoyed their classic picnic fayre, guests will then have the opportunity to learn to ride that most of Victorian of contraptions – the Penny Farthing bicycle. The Tally Ho Experiences tutors will guide guests through the art of safely mounting, riding and dismounting a Penny Farthing in one of London’s quiet historic squares before taking confident riders on a tour of royal London, including cycling down Pall Mall to Buckingham Palace.

The Penny Farthing and Picnic package is available from 14 April 2019 on certain dates throughout the year at a cost of £165 per person. Picnics can be ordered separately for £40 per person. For an additional charge of £30, Jumeirah Lowndes Hotel will deliver, set up and collect the picnic hamper from nearby Hyde Park.

Reservations must be made at least 24 hours in advance by contacting the hotel concierge team on +44 (0)207 823 1234 or JLHconcierge@jumeirah.com.
