If you’ve missed the bright lights of the capital, the thrills and the adventures, you’re going to love this because we’re giving away an epic weekender. You could whizz down to London in all the luxury of a first class Azuma train, which, by the way, takes 2 hours 16 minutes. And once you’re there? Circus acts, bottomless brunches, afternoon tea and a wonderfully indulgent stay at St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel – this is going to be incredible!

First class travel comes with a complimentary meal, delivered to your seat. From bacon butties to ham salads and seeded loaf cakes, there’s something for everyone. And to keep you entertained? Free wifi, handy power sockets and USB charging points. You’ll be there before you know it!

Go bottomless with a sensational brunch at Circus

Bottomless Brunch Circus London

Circus offers a bottomless brunch like no other. Unlimited mimosas are a given, but here, they’re knocked back in a spectacular setting. Fire-breathers wrangle unruly flames, aerialists swing perilously above your head and contortionists twist their bodies into eye-popping poses – all while you devour a tantalising menu of pan-Asian eats. Their brunch is a feast to share, with everything from delicately flavoured dim sum to sweet miso salmon, and despite free-flow drinks, it’s an experience you’ll never forget.

Stay at the oh-so-luxurious St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel

St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel London

Step inside St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel, an architectural wonderland where gold leaf ceilings meet gothic revival metalwork. It’s a sumptuous destination for an overnight stay, and nestled as it is just a short walk from Kings Cross, the location couldn’t be better. Our winner will bag an overnight stay in the Barlow Wing, where history gives way to contemporary chic and all the mod-cons. You’ll stay in one of their wonderfully spacious Premier King Bedrooms, but be sure to take time away to enjoy the heated pool in their Victorian spa.

Partake in a decadent afternoon tea at The Hansom

St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel London

Wait! What if, between brunch and bedtime, you could sneak downstairs for an exquisite afternoon tea in The Hansom? This destination cocktail bar, with its magnificent neo-gothic architecture and vast vaulted ceilings, is the perfect place for a lavish afternoon tea. Delicate sandwiches are filled with truffled hen egg, slow-roasted beef and coronation chicken, while sweets come in the form of Oreo choux and posh Bakewell tarts. And the grand finale? Freshly baked scones, smothered in clotted cream and jam. Add a glass of bubbly and you’re all set!
