April 19, 2012, 3:07 am -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- This May and August, London will host two separate weekends of events dedicated to food-lovers. On May 5th and 6th, the Foodies Festival will come to Hampton Court Palace, followed by a turn at Battersea Park between August 17th and 19th.
Around 25,000 people are expected to attend each weekend, with many travelling to the capital from across the country. Helping foodies from outside the city find affordable London hotels is website LondonTown.com, who is offering significant discounts on selected rooms.
The events will give attendees the opportunity to meet Michelin-starred chefs and see them perform live cookery demonstrations. Restaurant tents will offer samples of signature dishes and champagne. Day tickets cost £15, with a three-day pass for the August event available for £25.
Among the discounted London hotels on offer close to the Battersea Park event is the Pestana Chelsea Bridge Hotel & Spa. Only 9 minutes walk from the Foodies Festival, the hotel is providing a 77% discount on a double room, bringing the nightly rate down to just £83.
A twenty minute trot from Battersea Park, The Sloane Square Hotel is offering double rooms from £129 per night, which is a 50% discount on the usual price. To take advantage of the discounts, both London hotels featured must be booked through LondonTown.com, where you'll also find more information on the 2012 Foodies Festival.
