The Lensbury x Sipsmith: Lowdown
The Lensbury Hotel in Teddington has partnered with handcrafted gin pioneers, Sipsmith, to launch the ‘Sipsmith Secret Garden’ this summer. For a limited time only, Sipsmith has transformed The Lensbury Rose Garden with everything that’s needed for that perfect sipping occasion, including a pop-up bar, stunning floral archway, and deckchairs.
The hotel’s close proximity to the capital makes it an ideal choice for Londoner’s looking to escape the city, whether for an evening drink or an overnight stay. The hotel also boasts first-class sport facilities, including 22 tennis courts, a watersports centre that offers kayaking, sailing, and motorboat hire, as well as a state-of-the-art gym.
The Lensbury x Sipsmith: Why Visit
Transporting guests from their everyday lives, the Sipsmith Garden is tucked away in the hotel’s expansive 25-acre grounds, and with views of The Thames, its own wildlife pond and the estate’s impressive rose collection, it’s an idyllic spot to enjoy a refreshing summer cocktail with loved ones.
