Fabulous New Year Shindigs

Start the year as you mean to go on with these amazing New Year's Eve parties. Whether you want full out glamour or something more low-key, you can see in 2019 with style.


New Year’s Eve House Party, Chewton Glen – £2,980 based on two sharing

Chewton Glen champagnePack your bags and prepare for some fun as Chewton Glen opens its doors for a very special house party. The special New Year’s package includes two nights accommodation at the 5-star hotel, plus an itinerary packed with afternoon tea, a jazz brunch buffet plus a black tie event for the night itself.

Marwell Hotel Black Tie Event, Colden Common – £79.50 per person

Spend your New Year’s on an African Safari via, errr… Winchester. The Marwell Hotel is holding a black tie event at its unique location and as well as six-course gala dinner, you’ll be able to dance the night away at the in-house disco. Accommodation is also available at an additional £155 per adult (so no trying to sort out a taxi, hoorah!)

New Year’s Eve Masquerade Ball at the Apollo Hotel, Basingstoke – £79.00 per adult

Masquerade ball basingstokeIs this Venice? Why, no… it’s Basingstoke! Grab your glitziest mask (I obviously have several) and dance the night away in complete anonymity as the Apollo Hotel throws a grand Masquerade Ball.  The “All That Glitters” event comes with a four-course meal, wine and bubbles for the ding dongs, and for additional £55, you can book bed and breakfast to truly embrace in your first hangover of 2019.

New Year’s Package, Red Lion, Odiham, £225 based on two sharing

Red Lion Odiham New YearA Muddy favourite and a cosy spot to see in the chimes is the Red Lion in Odiham. As well as a rather tasty sounding five-course dinner, for those who book up the special New Year’s package you also get a free chilled bottle of Lanson Black Label champagne in your room. You can’t go wrong with free bubbles!

New Year’s Eve House Party, White Horse, Romsey – £110 per person

Over to Romsey now, where the White Horse are putting on its take on a New Year House Party. Canapés, fizz and a boogie in the Stables (don’t worry, I don’t think there are any actual horses in there…), you’ll be able to see in the new year hot-to-trot. There’s even a post-midnight snack to soak up that excess. Genius.

New Year’s Eve Gala Dinner, Hotel Du Vin, Winchester – £99 per person

New Year ChampagneHave a jolly old send off for the old year with the New Year’s event at Winchester’s Hotel Du Vin. Located in a gorgeous building, you can wine and dine with a four-course dinner and champers, before strutting your stuff to an acoustic singer’s set. Wonderwall, anybody?

New Year’s Getaway Event, The Royal, Ventnor – £500 per person for 2 nights, £590 per person for 3 nights

Escape to the Island this New Year for a few days of fun, fabulous accommodation and good food. The Royal’s New Year Getaway comes complete with a six-course New Year’s Eve dinner, dancing, a casino night to use up the remainder of your 2018 luck, plus dinner and drinks throughout.

Orient Express New Year’s Eve Party, Emirates Spinnaker, Portsmouth – £65 per person

Spinnaker Tower Portsmouth Gunwharf New YearZoot suits and flapper girls, The Orient Express is heading skyward at the Emirates Spinnaker Tower this New Year’s to see in 2019 – 20s style. No dinner at this one but, you can get a little “zozzled” and throw out your best Charleston moves high above the Solent.
