Travel to London First Class with LNER
If you’re our lucky winner you’ll start your trip in style, cruising down to London in the comfort of First Class on a high-speed LNER train. Oh yes, that means access to the First Class lounge at Leeds Station, ultra-comfy reclining seats and complimentary food and drinks throughout your journey. With delicious, locally-sourced goodies to enjoy, you’ll be in London before you know it. Now that’s worth raising a glass to.
Dig into tacos and tequila at Casa Pastor
Our winner will enjoy a romantic lunch for two at chic taqueria Casa Pastor – just a hop, skip and a jump away from Kings Cross. The Diablito Margarita is sure to set sparks flying, made with El Jimador Reposado, Ancho Reyes chilli liqueur and a jalapeño salt rim, while the octopus and confit pork belly taco will satisfy the most seasoned of foodies. After something heartier? A stellar sharing menu is crowned by a melt-in-your-mouth short rib and bone marrow platter.
Cosy up at the five star Great Northern Hotel
Once you’ve had your fill of bebidas, it’s time to check into your accommodation for the night – The Great Northern Hotel, an effortlessly stylish boutique literally seconds from King’s Cross Station. You’ll be greeted with cocktails and nibbles on arrival, which you can enjoy within the lavish surrounds of the hotel bar. As for your room, you’ll have a choice of Heritage or Victorian style – both are wonderfully inviting, complete with a kingsize bed and impressive city views.
Wine & dine at the stunning Bourne & Hollingsworth
The elegant Bourne & Hollingsworth is your destination for dinner. This gorgeous brasserie is easy on the eye – expect lush greenery and floor-to-ceiling windows – with epic food to boot. Kick things off with a cocktail, followed by a glass of wine from their extensive selection, then dig into a lovingly-prepared three-course meal. Expect a British-inspired menu that champions local, seasonal produce in the form of dishes like ham hock terrine and roast cod.
Hit the West End for a show
Nothing screams romance like a night at the theatre, and that’s exactly where our lucky winner is heading. Land this prize and you’ll pick up two tickets to a show of your choice from Society of London Theatre. So, what will it be? Join Dorothy for an adventure in The Wizard of Oz at the Palladium, or sing your hearts out at the crowd-pleasing Mamma Mia! But for a bonafide classic, it has to be the historic Les Misérables – there’s a reason it’s the longest-running musical in the world.
Enjoy brunch with a view at The Lighterman
Before you hop on your train home, there’s time for a spot of brunch. The Lighterman is a stunning bar and eatery on the banks of the Regent’s Canal. Grab a seat on the terrace and take your pick from the menu – the fried chicken Benedict is a spicy take on an old classic – then sup on cocktails and champagne as you reminisce on the night before. With the station just a stone’s throw away and £150 to spend, you’ve got plenty of time to relax and enjoy the morning sun, drink in hand.
