Sloane Street, one of the world’s most luxurious shopping avenues, is taking Christmas shopping to the next level this season with a five star personalised service. From December 11 to 14, the London SW1 street will be flanked by traditionally dressed, multi-lingual butlers who will be on hand to carry bags, open doors and offer information.

In conjunction, The Dorchester and 45 Park Lane hotels are offering a five-star experience, with guests chauffeured to and from Sloane Street in a Rolls-Royce Phantom and then assisted by Sloane Street’s personal shopper in residence, Angela Dunn.

Afternoon tea and a relaxing foot massage finish the day. To book, telephone 020-7493 4545 or visit www.sloanestreet.co.uk.
