The flowers are beginning to bloom. The birds are beginning to chirp. The days are brightening once more. So, it is time to come out of hibernation and enjoy what London has to offer again (and boy are those streets waiting to be walked).
Looking for a stress-free family break in London can sometimes prove tricky, but with amazing sights and attractions that are only a short walk away, Sea Containers London is the perfect base for you all.
We are so delighted to have reopened our doors, and with that we have launched volume IV of our NHS campaign - NHS +1, whereby we want you, our NHS heroes, to come and let us take care of you, but with a plus one. We kick this volume off by partnering with our lovely friends at Curzon to offer free film nights to you and your chosen date.
2021 did not quite start as we had expected, and then more than ever before our NHS heroes and key workers needed some extra TLC, so we partnered with some amazing brands, including Laurent-Perrier, Sara Miller London, Tony’s Chocolonely, Spitalfields Candles, Natura Bisse, Eau Thermale Avene, LIHA Beauty and Nailberry to donate 100 Care Bundles to the NHS. This has now finished, but if you would like to read more about their inspirational stories, just scroll down.
After the success of our NHS ‘Nominate Your Hero’ campaign in May 2020, we launched Volume II, where we asked you, our day-to-day guests, neighbours and friends to share a story of your NHS ‘hero’. Once a week, we randomly picked one hero story that won an experience in our hotel. The experiences ranged from dinner for two in our riverside restaurant, to a spa treatment in our therapeutic spa playground. If you want to have a look and read some of these heroic stories, then scroll on down. Volume II started from August to December 2020. Then, we launched Volume III…
Not all heroes wear capes. On the front lines of the global crisis caused by COVID-19, our heroes wear scrubs and face masks as they navigate challenging conditions and inadequate resources to save lives. To celebrate the NHS and healthcare workers who show up day in and day out to help our country survive this pandemic, we launched an initiative to give away 365 overnight stays at Sea Containers London. We were completely overwhelmed by the fantastic response and touched by the heroic stories that were shared with us, so we released a further 180 room nights to our heroes.

The amazing stories submitted will be displayed in our Gallery Space from 15 August, to continue to honour our NHS heroes and inspire us all to show up the way they do every day. But we couldn’t wait to share a few of them with you now, so every day we share one of these stories below.
