A magical experience awaits, whisking guests on a winter holiday without leaving the city. Remember to wear your cold weather clothing! Blankets will be provided to keep you warm.

Throughout the season, guests will also enjoy a most splendid teatime at our signature Lobby Lounge and Ritz Gourmet Lounge available daily with a special selection of your favorite teas, festive treats and glasses of bubbly.
