Sit back, relax—and enjoy the advantages!
YOUR CLUBS AT HOME AND ABROAD
How many of us wish to belong to another Club in London or elsewhere, but cannot justify the fee for the number of times we would use it? As a CountryClubuk Member you have free reciprocal membership of private Clubs.
When in London, you can stroll along to the St James’s Club, an historic private members’ club just a walk from the Palace. You can meet guests, lunch or dine at the top of the Gherkin in the City. Or join members of the world famous Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club in Soho, giving you free entrance to the popular Late Late Show and VIP tickets to see the top jazz musicians of the age.
When in Edinburgh, enjoy a night’s stay or dine at the Royal Scots Club, your personal home-from-home in the heart of Edinburgh, near Princes Street.
And if you have not yet visited your ‘home club’ in Paris you are missing a treat. The Saint James is an elegant private château club in the heart of Paris, where you can stay, lunch or dine on Michelin-star cuisine, or arrange a private meeting or event.
LONDON HOTELS AT CLUB RATES
When CountryClubuk Members want to stay in London they contact the Club for exclusive rates, free upgrades and extra treats. We know the capital well, and you can be sure of our choice, from finest five-stars to hidden gems, saving up to 70% off rack rates, with free room upgrades and indulgences including free bottles of wine or Champagne.
So, for example, you can stay at The Savoy and save up to £500—perhaps even more!—with free room upgrade and bottle of wine. Or The Ritz, where Club rates include a free room upgrade and a bottle of Champagne on ice to welcome you.
