Bombay Sapphire Discovery Experience with tour and tasting

Visits to Covent Garden & Bicester Designer Shopping Village



With a comfort break en route, we travel to Covent Garden for free time. During the festive season this famous market becomes even more irresistible as the iconic market buildings glow with festive lights that sparkle across the piazza and its adjoining streets. Fill up your stockings with a selection of specialty, craft, antique and jewellery shops before we continue to our hotel.


After breakfast we travel to Laverstoke Mill in rural Hampshire, tucked away in a conservation area with over 1,000 years of history, you will find a gin lover's paradise as we explore the home of Bombay Sapphire with a guided tour! We will follow a resident Gin Expert on a journey through the site's heritage and the gin's production. Discover the Mill's fascinating history and see the exotic botanicals infused into every drip of Bombay Sapphire in the Glasshouses and Dry Room. After having immersed yourself in the history of this iconic drink, you will be ready to taste some, so enjoy a complimentary tipple in the Mill Bar as you watch the river roll by. On our way home, we visit the Bicester Village Designer Shopping Outlet for some bargain Christmas shopping opportunities.

Please note: Laverstoke Mill is a working distillery so insist that guests wear suitable footwear. Guests wearing open-toed shoes or high heels will not be able to enter the Still House.
