Indulge with Willy Wonka at the Sanderson this Christmas


The Sanderson are sweetening up the festive season! 

One of our favourite hotels has taken inspiration from one our favourite films to bring you a themed festive experience! The Sanderson welcomes Willy Wonka and his chocolate factory for an indulgent Christmas.

From 27 November, find a colourful and more importantly, edible Christmas tree in the lobby. Featuring stacked vintage sweet jars stuffed with colourful chocolate sweets, glowing fairy lights and a giant rainbow lollipop topper, bringing Willy Wonka’s magic to the heart of the hotel.

The famed Long Bar will be adorned with overflowing vintage jars and psychedelic swirls, whilst the floral ceiling feature will be decked with giant candy canes, golden tickets and colourful ribbons. Wonka-style factory gates will lead out to the Courtyard Garden and visitors will be welcomed into the bar by a pair of giant lips decked with real bubblegum balls and a faint, sweet aroma of bubblegum.

To mark the sweet occasion, there will be a bespoke Willy Wonka cocktail menu. These tasty tipples will feature Wonka’s Martini and the Blue Meadow Star – perfect for all the gin lovers.

It doesn’t matter if you have a golden ticket or not, The Sanderson is open for everyone to enjoy. As it is a stone’s throw from Oxford Street, make sure you enjoy the sweetness this season.
