This is Sunborn London. A floating superyacht hotel offering a new experience in the world's premier city. Sunborn London is an experience to fall in love with.
Sunborn London’s remarkable waterfront setting enables guests to enjoy breathtaking views across the Thames towards the towering spires of Canary Wharf and the celebrated dome of the O2 Arena.
The yacht hotel’s proximity to the world-famous ExCel Exhibition Centre, which hosts hundreds of international events and conferences each year, makes it an ideal base for a visit to London’s Docklands. Superb transport links by rail, river and cable car also make it easy to travel into central London for some of the best shopping, shows, music and dining in the world.
Style meets comfort in the yacht’s Classic and Executive Rooms. Expect elegant design with a traditional craftsman’s finish, luxurious bathrooms and first-class service.
Sunborn London’s 132 guest rooms and 4 suites tell a story of timeless quality. Designed to provide light and spacious accommodation, each room has river or dock views, in most cases, framed by large french windows. Yacht Executives lead on to a private terrace or balcony. Classic furnishings, pristine bathrooms and contemporary amenities combine to create an indulgent retreat.
A soaring cable car ride to Greenwich Peninsula puts a world of attractions in easy reach. The National Maritime Museum and Cutty Sark at Greenwich tell a compelling story of Britain’s sea-faring traditions, while the nearby Royal Observatory offers a chance for all of us to explore the mysteries of the universe at London’s only planetarium. If you’d rather appreciate old masters than go stargazing, though, a trip to the Queen’s House, designed by Inigo Jones in the 17th century, is highly recommended. The O2 Arena is not only home to the world’s most popular music venue, it also features a bowling alley, cinema and restaurants, and makes for a fun-packed day or evening out
Named in celebration of Victoria Dock’s original identity, the Land’s End restaurant serves the finest food in surroundings to match your mood. Executive Head Chef, Pawel Motzek, makes creative use of the best ingredients to provide signature dishes that draw from the best of British with Asian and Mediterranean influences.
Land’s End restaurant caters for every mood from casual buffet breakfast to quick-fire business lunch and after-dark fine dining. The intimate cedar and brass surroundings coupled with elegant lighting create a perfect backdrop for sampling the international gourmet menu, while the adjoining Sundown lounge bar is a smart choice for pre-dinner drinks. Why not give your private party the superyacht treatment, by booking exclusive use of the fabulous top-deck Sky Bar?
Join London’s biggest street party as the Notting Hill Carnival fills the streets of west London with Caribbean colours, music and flavours.
Watch elaborate floats and colourful costumed performers wind their way through the streets in the carnival parade, dance to the sound of steel bands and calypso music, and visit the tempting food stalls along the route.
The Notting Hill Carnival was first held in 1966 as an offshoot of the Trinidad Carnival, celebrating Caribbean culture and traditions in London.
When the Notting Hill Carnival first started, around 500 people attended the Caribbean festival. The carnival has since become the largest street festival in Europe, attracting hundreds of thousands to London, and continues to grow in popularity. Expect to see some 50,000 performers in the parade and more than 30 sound systems, with more than one million people attending over the carnival weekend.
Grand Finale – Monday 26 August
See colourful dancers, performers, steel bands and mobile sound systems fill the streets of Notting Hill for the Grand Finale (Monday Parade). Plus, tuck into delicious treats from the many food stalls in the area, and enjoy even more entertainment at the 38 static sound systems along the route and live stages in Emslie Horniman’s Pleasance park and Powis Square.
