Live the collector’s life over the Independence Day holiday in London at the annual London Art Weekend. Brown’s, a Rocco Forte hotel and one of our fave Mayfair properties, is offering a special VIP package that gives guests behind a three-night behind-the-scenes look at one of the art world’s most coveted events, including visits to the studios of celebrated artists, invitations to the homes of private collectors and curator-led tours to cutting-edge galleries including White Cube and Victoria Miro, behind-the-scenes access to Christies and more.
Book the package, limited to just 20 guests, and snag priceless perks, including a private tour and champagne reception at Spencer House, the ancestral home of the late Princess Diana and the only great 18th century private palace in London. The home itself is an art-lovers dream; it was completely restored in the 1980’s by Lord Rothschild, and is adorned with exceptional art including many paintings on load from the Royal Collection.
In addition, you’ll get VIP access all weekend long, including a boardroom luncheon at Christies, an evening at the opera, and private gallery visits.
The price is reasonable, too – about $4,500 per person for a two-night stay in a King Classic room.
I think we’re willing to forego fireworks and a cookout for that, don’t you?
