Biltmore to Celebrate Brit Wedding

Rising to Occasion with Tiaras and High Tea


As the whole world seems to be buzzing about the fast-approaching wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, the Biltmore Four Seasons Resort in Santa Barbara is rising to the occasion and will host the British Biltmore Celebration. The celebration, to last throughout April, will offer hotel guests a taste of the British royal treatment. The royal wedding is scheduled for April 29.

With the complimentary crowns and tiaras distributed upon check-in, even the younger patrons of the hotel will be thrilled to join in on the fun. At the Ty Lounge, guests can sit down to a traditional meal of beer-battered fish and chips or sip on British-inspired cocktails such as the James Bond or Big Ben. In addition, on Thursdays, the Ty Lounge will be hosting evenings of U.K. entertainment, with classic hits by Brit groups such as The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, and Radiohead keeping guests on the dance floor all night. The celebration continues on Friday and Saturday, when guests can enjoy high tea, snacking on finger sandwiches, crumpets, and scones. Sports fans can enjoy soccer and English lawn bowing on Sunday, or participate in trivia and darts. The British Biltmore celebration will be sure to have guests keeping calm and carrying on, all in honor of the royal nuptials.
