Join Raymond Blanc for an exclusive Quintessentially FT Weekend in Paris

The weekend will run as follows:


Start the weekend in style as you’re collected in a chauffeur driven car and taken to the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel in London for a Champagne reception with host,
Chef Raymond Blanc, before boarding your first class carriage on Eurostar.

Following your arrival at the five star Le Royal Monceau Hotel and Spa in Paris, the entertainment will begin with a ‘Fireside Chat’ hosted by FT journalists featuring guests from the world of art and culture. You’ll then finish the evening by enjoying a decadent dinner, especially created for such an occasion.


Join Raymond Blanc on an exclusive Parisian market tour, as he shares his passion for the finest fresh produce that Paris has to offer. Then relax over a delicious brunch, served at a beautiful location and with special guests to entertain you.

A bespoke afternoon allows you to indulge your own interests, as you choose from private art tours, wine tastings, private shopping trips or the chance to unwind in the tranquility of your hotel’s world class spa.

Later you’ll attend the Gala Dinner, where you’ll be treated to the rare luxury of a menu prepared and cooked by Raymond Blanc. FT Weekend journalists will interview special guests, followed by a musical performance that will complete an unforgettable evening.


Sunday morning: what better time to relax and enjoy springtime in Paris? You’ll even have a range of hosted activities to choose from. After leaving your hotel, you’ll be transported to the river Seine where you’ll board a private charter boat, enjoying a superb lunch on board as you cruise past Paris’s most beautiful and iconic sights.
Chauffeur-driven cars will be waiting at the waterside to whisk you to your private carriage on the Eurostar. You’ll return in style and comfort to London, still dazzled by the City of Light.
