If you are in London for Pride on 2nd July, Hilton Honors is holding a private party on the roof of The Trafalgar hotel in Trafalgar Square.
Five pairs of tickets are available via the Hilton experiences platform here.
They are priced at 75,000 points per pair. This seems pricey to me – you’d get a £250 hotel room for that – but let’s see.
Here’s what you get:
“Join Hilton’s exclusive Pride in London after-party from the rooftop at The Trafalgar St. James, Curio Collection by Hilton, overlooking Trafalgar Square and London’s spectacular skyline. This invite-only event begins as the Pride in London March draws to a close, serving guests free-flowing drinks, colourful canapés, and a whole lot of “Yas Queen!” Also be prepared to strut your stuff with drag performances, as we celebrate the 50th anniversary of Pride in London.
This experience for two (2) includes:
– Tickets to Hilton’s exclusive Pride in London after-party on Saturday, July 2, 2022
– Complimentary drinks
– Canapés with a colourful twist
– Surprise drag performances”
