Believe it or not, Christmas Eve is only one calendar month away today! With Black Friday deals hitting the shops, a lot of you will be choosing this weekend to start your Christmas shopping. The Grays Christmas Gift Guide 2016 is now available in-store at reception or online here, and features a fantastic array of antique and vintage gift ideas for your nearest and dearest.
Grays and The Mews will be open for Christmas shopping right up until Christmas Eve at 4pm and will be open late on Friday 23 December until 7pm for last minute shoppers! Don't forget you can also buy gift vouchers from reception in the Mews, in denominations of £10, £20 or £50, which make a great gift for those difficult relatives. If you're planning a trip to Grays, why not take in the stunning Bond Street Christmas lights while you're in the area?
