Corinthia Hotel London Offers a Chance to Discover The Historic Petworth Estate
The luxurious Corinthia Hotel London is housed within a beautiful Victorian building and features 294 rooms that include 36 suites plus 7 penthouses, all serving up amazing views across London’s most popular city landmarks.
The five-star Corinthia Hotel London is now offering an incredible package for its hotel guests that includes an exclusive outing to the historic Petworth Estate.
A day’s outing to this English country estate, allows Corinthia guests to go hunting for game, and offered a tour of the ancestral home of Lord and Lady Egremont. At Petworth House, guest can also view the largest private collection of artwork by Turner, plus enjoy a traditional English Afternoon Tea in the scenic, British countryside.
The gorgeous Petworth estate was designed by renowned English landscape architect Lancelot “Capability” Brown back in 1752. The property is part of the National Trust.
Start your day with an early morning pick up from the hotel in Whitehall Place (Range Rover or helicopter options available) and travel to the Petworth Estate in West Sussex. You will be greeted in the gun room by Head Keeper/Deer Manager David Whitby. There you’ll be fitted with everything from hearing protection to guns and cartridges.
Your country stately home experience continues with a morning of simulated game shooting followed by an afternoon drive of live game, type depending on the time of year. From October to January the focus is on birds such as pheasants. Between April to September it’s simulated stalking and shooting of live deer when available.
For fishing lovers during the summer, try your luck with fly-fishing for rainbow or brown trout on the estate’s rivers or eight lakes.
With a busy schedule of hunting and shooting across the estate, you’re appetite will need to be dealt with. Corinthia’s Executive Chef Garry Hollihead will prepare an incredible breakfast and picnic lunch (depending on weather). The meals will be served to the guests by butlers and estate staff. And of course, an afternoon tea is also included.
At the end of the day, Corinthia Hotel London guests may be given oven-ready game birds, fish and/or venison, which Corinthia London can prepare for their dinner when they get back to the hotel in the evening.
If game hunting is not your thing, then you can also enjoy a day at Petworth with a guided tour of the main house (which houses the largest private collection of Turner paintings), horse and cart tour of the estate (weather permitting), and a look around the plethora of local antique shops.
Interestingly, the ancestral 17th century home Petworth House includes a section that is still inhabited by Lord and Lady Egremont.
