Connaught Hotel Launches Royal Warrant Tour in London

The Connaught hotel partners up with travel guide Fox & Squirrel to provide walking tours around the luxury brands who are Royal Warrant holders of Mayfair.

The first of four walking tours around some of the most-established luxury brands in Mayfair debuts this October.

Curated by London based guided walks company Fox & Squirrel for The Connaught hotel, the tours are designed to give guests an insight into the origins and running of a selection of brands that have been granted Royal Warrants.

Commencing with ‘London’s Social Scene’, the first tour will look into the evolution of the aristocratic social scene and its impact on the makers of luxury products.

Guests will visit the workshops and talk to the craftsmen behind these brands, viewing some of their rare and previously unseen artefacts.

One tour is entirely devoted to visiting some of the city’s oldest and most-established tailors on Savile Row. Guests will be guided around the workshops and fitting rooms of some of these renowned artisans, including Gieves & Hawkes, supplier to 10 generations of British royalty from King George III in 1809 right up to the present Queen Elizabeth II.

Walking tours start on Thursday 30 October. To book a place, email: [email protected].
