    As the 28th of May draws nearer, details on yet another special event tieing into the Ian Fleming centenary have been revealed:

    Brown’s Hotel Launches Exclusive Ian Fleming Centenary Package

    To celebrate the 100-year anniversary of Ian Fleming’s birth and the launch of The Imperial War Museum’s new exhibition, ‘For Your Eyes Only: Ian Fleming and James Bond’, Rocco Forte’s Brown’s Hotel is offering a special package, The Ian Fleming Centenary stay.

    There’s nowhere more appropriate that Brown’s Hotel in which to pay homage to one of literature’s great characters; John Gardner liked the hotel so much he included it in his Bond novel Icebreaker, and the sexy and stylish Donovan Bar offers a wide range of decadent Bond cocktails. Things have certainly been shaken, and perhaps a little stirred, since the recent £24 million renovation of Brown’s Hotel; its re-launch was a decidedly glamorous affair with even famed Bond actor Roger Moore in attendance.

    Now guests can sample the Bond lifestyle for themselves with this stylish weekend get-away…

    Highlights of the Ian Fleming Centenary package include:

    • Overnight accommodation in a luxurious room or suite
    • Full English breakfast (which is reputed to be Bond’s favourite meal of the day)
    • Two tickets to ‘For Your Eyes Only: Ian Fleming and James Bond’ – the new exhibition at The Imperial War Museum, London*
    • Two Bond cocktails in The Donovan Bar
    • An exclusive, hardback copy of Ian Fleming’s Casino Royale
    • Complimentary use of gymnasium to buff up those muscles

    *Tickets to the ‘For Your Eyes Only: Ian Fleming and James Bond’ exhibition are subject to availability and time restrictions may apply. To book these tickets, clients must contact the hotel directly to arrange.

    Prices start from £315 per night, excluding VAT, for two people sharing. Available Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights, from 18th April to 28th December 2008, subject to availability.

    For further information on the Ian Fleming Centenary package, phone 0870 460 8040 or visit the official website.
