Mandarin Oriental London Offers Rickshaw Rides for the Olympics

Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, London

Now here’s a clever way to dodge the crowds flocking to London for the Summer 2012 Olympic Games: a luxurious rickshaw offered by the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park. The hotel has announced that this new service will be available from July 27- August 12, 2012. The red Mandarin Oriental rickshaw can transport you around Hyde Park and to the lovely boutiques of Knightsbridge.

Just out the hotel’s back door, Hyde Park will be the setting for a few Olympic sporting events like Marathon Swimming in Serpentine Lake. Good to know: The Mandarin Oriental will pack you up a sumptuous picnic to enjoy in the park, and, if you'd like, a personal butler can pick out the perfect spot and attend to the meal. In the evening, don’t miss a meal at the hotel’s fabulous restaurants, Bar Boulud and Dinner by Heston Blumenthal.

The Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park is located at 66 Knightsbridge. For more information about the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, visit www.mandarinoriental.com/london.
