Celebrating 60 Years of NAFAS, London 2019

NAFAS Diamond Anniversary London 2019

 

ECT has enjoyed a long association with NAFAS and we are delighted to have been chosen as the preferred travel partner for the Society's Diamond Anniversary celebrations in London in August 2019.


We have negotiated special rates at three London hotels and can offer a variety of travel options, ranging from simply booking the hotel and arranging transport to and from the Floral Art and Design Show at the Business Design Centre and the Diamond Dinner at Grosvenor House Hotel, to devising an unforgettable four night London experience featuring private floral demonstrations and delicious afternoon teas.  So, whether you're planning to attend the celebrations alone, in the company of a few friends or your entire NAFAS group, we have a package to suit.

 

5*Threadneedles Hotel - in the heart of the City

Threadneedles Hotel

This 5* boutique hotel is an unexpected find in the heart of London's financial district. Set in a former Victorian bank, it blends history with distinctly contemporary chic. The original wooden counter is now a glamorous champagne and oyster bar for example, while the former banking hall has been turned into a lounge where guests can take afternoon tea, or meet for a cocktail beneath the glass domed roof. You will want to linger here - not least to try out the various dining options, which range from an informal meal in the bar or lounge to a grand feast in Marco Pierre White's Wheeler's of St James Oyster Bar & Grill Room - but with St Paul's Cathedral, Tate Modern and Shakespeare's Globe all within 15 minutes walk of the front door, Threadneedles is also perfectly placed for sightseeing.
