It’s holiday time. School’s out. Out-of-office is on. You’ve worked all year — now it’s time to play. But taking it easy can be hard work. Let The Royal Exchange help give your holiday plans a flying start.
Take in the Fortnum & Mason summer terrace. Here you’ll find all the wonders and delights of our famous courtyard restaurant out on holiday in the London summer sunshine. Help yourself to champagne, seafood platters and other seasonal delicacies. After, head to the Oeno terrace for world-class wines enjoyed al fresco in the sunshine.
Ice Cream And Aperitifs
Ladurée’s summer highlights include its delicious artisanal ice cream — perfect for taking down the temperature — and available in a rainbow of flavours including vanilla, raspberry, salted caramel and pistachio. What’s more, on the 15th of June the brand launches its anticipated Ladurée x Roseblood collection, a unique collaboration with Château d’Estoublon, the Provence estate famous the world over for its vineyards and olive groves. Pairing the distinctive flavours of Roseblood with the craftmanship of Ladurée, the release includes sorbets, wine, cocktails, tea — and yes, those wonderful, one-of-a-kind macarons.
The label is also running an aperitif hour where, every night between 4pm and 6.30pm throughout July, it will be pairing a glass of champagne and rosé wine with one macaron each.
An English Garden
King Charles has always been a passionate devotee — and dedicated champion — of the countryside and nature. And so it’s only right that this spring and summer we’ll see The Royal Exchange bloom into rich, vivid colour through a series of installations evoking the quintessential English garden. All across our iconic space, a combination of artworks and live plants will create an immersive kaleidoscope of shapes and colours inspired by the country’s flora. The first iteration of the installation is inspired by the King’s’ favourite flower — the Delphinium — to commemorate his coronation and passion for the outdoors. Whenever you visit this season, we look forward to welcoming you to experience the beauty of nature like never before.
