Hastings Hotels has a star-studded selection of experiences on offer this summer including Bridgerton Inspired and Derry Girls Afternoon Teas and the hugely in demand Line of Duty Tour.
Derry Girls Experience
The Everglades Hotel in Derry-Londonderry is giving people the chance to dine like a Derry Girl and even visit some of the filming locations. Guests will also have the chance to get their picture taken with the hotel’s famous resident, Michelle the Derry Girls duck.
Enjoy the Derry Girls Afternoon Tea (£30pp) with sandwiches, freshly baked scones & breads and pastry assortment but with a Derry Girls twist – sausage roll baps, fresh cream horns, cone of chips and cocktail.
The Be A Derry Girl package from only £75pps includes luxurious overnight accommodation and breakfast the following morning and themed Derry Girls Afternoon Tea with cocktail or why not upgrade to the Derry Girls Tour overnight package from only £95pps which also includes a guided Derry Girls Walking Tour. All packages include your very own Michelle, the Derry Girls duck to take home.
Line of Duty Experience
The Line of Duty Overnight Experience, available on selected dates from £220 per room (based on 2 people sharing), begins with lunch in the Grand Café in the Grand Central Hotel, before an action packed guided tour onboard a luxurious McCombs coach, taking in some of the most recognisable filming locations including the iconic Subway location, the favourite meeting point for Steve and Kate to have their secret rendezvous; ‘Pelbury House’ the headquarters of the Central Police force and ‘Hickey’s Bookmakers’ from the opening scene of series six that first made viewers suspect that DCI Davidson was a bent copper.
The afternoon finishes with an AC12 cocktail or Wee Donkey mocktail in the Observatory, Ireland’s tallest cocktail bar in the Grand Central Hotel. Then it’s time to check in for a luxurious overnight stay and full Irish breakfast the following morning.
Bridgerton Afternoon Tea
Who didn’t watch Netflix’s most-watched show of all time, Bridgerton? Guests are cordially invited to experience the splendour of high society with a scandalously decadent Bridgerton Inspired Afternoon Tea (priced from £35pp) featuring a host of delightful treats in a stunning setting at the Culloden Estate & Slieve Donard Resort.
Stimulate your tastebuds starting with Lady Whistledown’s Starter, followed by Queen Charlotte’s Delectable Sandwiches, Lady Bridgerton’s Finest Scones and Lady Danbury’s Desserts and Dainty Cakes. This fabulous experience is complimented with your choice of tea or coffee or enhance your experience with Lady Whistledown’s Gossipy Gimlet cocktail or a glass or two of the finest champagne. The Bridgerton Inspired Afternoon Tea is ‘Flawless, my dear’.
The Bolly Bus For the ultimate outdoor summer experience, the Bolly Bus, at the Culloden Estate & Spa has the star factor and a host of celebrities, including Christine and Frank Lampard, have already been spotted enjoying the 5-star luxury.
The leading five-star hotel has teamed up with Pattinson & Co Wine Merchants, distributors of Bollinger Champagne, to create the bespoke bus which has been designed specifically for the Culloden. Where else in Belfast can you sit back, relax and enjoy incredible views and a fabulous selection of beverages. The Bolly Bus is open every Friday – Sunday from 12pm – 9pm.
