HILTON LONDON BANKSIDE LAUNCHES NEW FAMILY EXPERIENCES
LONDON 2017 – This Easter, Hilton London Bankside is launching an exciting array of activities and new amenities for families. Located in the buzzy area of Bankside, near the Tate Modern and Flat Iron square, the hotel provides a great base for little ones and their parents in the city. With so much to do around the property, from treasure hunts to creating towering ice-cream sundaes, children at Hilton London Bankside will stay entertained for hours while the grown-ups enjoy spa therapy at the serene Spa To You treatment rooms or indulge in a cocktail or two at The Distillery.
Arriving at Hilton London Bankside, children will be welcomed with comfy fox onesies referencing the hotel’s own furry mascot, the Bankside fox. A treasure hunt will take children all over the property in search of its 31 sneaky fox sculptures dotted around the lobby, bar and restaurant. Kids will be given a fox map which they can use as a guide and find as many as possible with a prize of fox shaped cookies made by the pastry chef if they find them all. After working up an appetite, kids will head to OXBO’s ice-cream station in the open kitchen to assemble their own super sundaes with the help of Executive Chef Paul Bates. The skies the limit with a huge variety of flavour combinations, toppings and sauces from salted caramel, marshmallows and chocolate sprinkles. At The Distillery mixologists have designed a mocktail menu especially for kids with plenty of vitamin-rich freshly squeezed fruit juice.
The cosy onesies are perfect for snuggling down in the evening accompanied with child size slippers and mini fluffy bathrobes. Lion shaped goodie bags with colouring books, puzzles and crayons will be placed in every room as well as child-friendly city maps so that kids can plot their adventures in London. Interconnecting bedrooms allow parents to keep a close eye on all the family with the helpful aid of signature fox figure door stoppers for the connecting door. Bathrooms will come with kid’s toiletries such as Johnson’s Shampoo and Top-To-Toe Bubble Bath. Mini soaps in the shape of hippos and cars make bath time a fun occasion with the addition of bright yellow non-slip mats shaped like ducks.
In addition to the many attractions in the Bankside area, such as storytelling on the Golden Hinde and Shakespeare’s Globe, children can also enjoy the hotel’s large swimming pool. A wonderful way for the family to play together, the pool is conveniently located next to the Spa To You treatments rooms for when parents want to relax.
Family stays at Hilton London Bankside from £299 for an interconnecting room, based on four people sharing, including breakfast. For reservations visit www.londonbankside.hilton.com or call 020 3667 5600
