British summertime is now well and truly upon us, with sunny days and overflowing parks now very much the norm in central London. Charlotte Street Hotel located just off Oxford Street has launched the perfect accompaniment to a summer afternoon with a selection of hampers, ideal for an alfresco brunch or picnic.
Split into three options, Charlotte Street offers hampers for an array of tastes. The Bloomsbury Hamper features simple British classics, with tuna and watercress and cheddar and tomato sandwiches included in the menu, as well as chocolate tiffin, fruit tart, and macaroons catering for the sweet tooth in all of us. The Gentleman’s Hamper features traditional picnic staples, with beef and horseradish, ploughman’s and BLT sandwiches donning the menu. If chocolate éclairs and rum baba take your fancy, you are certainly in luck with this choice.
Alternatively, the breakfast hamper is also available and allows for idyllic brunching in a nearby park or square. With croissants, muffins, smoked salmon sandwiches, granola bars and fruit salads featured on the menu, this option is certain to leave you continentally inspired for the day ahead.
Naturally, all hampers include a choice of fresh juices or soft drinks, but Charlotte Street Hotel also offers an additional drinks menu, with wines and champagne acting as a staple accompaniment to such a perfect picnicking occasion.
