Sports fans, listen up! If there’s one place that sums up summer sport it’s not the crease at Lord’s, it’s not the goalmouth at Wembley or Centre Court at Wimbledon, it’s Shangri-La Hotel, At The Shard. Yes, the tallest building in Europe, the one there’s a 60% chance you can see from your desk right now, has made itself the epicentre of this summer’s sporting season with their bucket list sporting experiences. If you’re looking for the ultimate gift for a sports fan, look no further. In one stay at the iconic hotel you can bag Wimbledon Centre Court Wimbledon Tickets, watch the Boston Red Sox play the New York Yankees at London Stadium and enjoy the ICC Cricket World Cup. As if that wasn’t enough, quite possibly the best crab restaurant is coming to town, which you can experience too. I know, right?
The initiative is part of the hotel’s summer line-up of amazing sporting opportunities linked to sky high stays. And if there’s one thing that will make you want to leave the incredible views from rooms at Shangri-La then it’s these offers. First, and foremost in our eyes, the hotel has bagged debenture tickets for Wimbledon Tennis Championships. This means that you can be guaranteed two centre court tickets at Wimbledon, valid for the full day and when you’re done with the tennis you can head back to your room or suite at Shangri La, take a dip in the infinity Sky Pool, famously the highest hotel pool in Western Europe.
This summer also sees the arrival of Major League Baseball in London, with two of the league’s biggest names, the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees, playing a one-off London game. It’s a one-off experience that’ll be even one-off-er given the stay at Shangri-La.
Finally, this summer is already dominated by the ICC Cricket World Cup, here in London and Shangri-La guests are invited to experience the Pakistan and Bangladesh match, live at Lords Cricket Ground, packaged with not only a stay at the hotel but also, and this is the best yet in our opinion, dinner at the ultimate in Sri Lankan cuisine with a dinner created by celebrated Sri Lankan Chef, Dharshan Munidasa, at the hotel’s Ministry of Crab charity pop-up event on level 34 of the hotel.
These packages are all incredible, the perfect gift if you’re feeling massively generous this Fathers’ Day, if there’s someone in your life who adores sport or you do, then this is the ultimate package. You can either run them together (Wimbledon followed by baseball, anyone?) or purchase the packages individually. Either way, make this memorable sporting summer even more memorable.
