Earth HourDine by candlelight at The Savoy on Saturday 23rd March, and you'll not only have a romantic night out but you'll be taking part in Earth Hour, the worldwide event which raises awareness about the environment. Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, Tower Bridge, and St Paul's Cathedral are some of the other London landmarks turning off their lights at 8.30pm for one hour. The WWF organised event, which began in Sydney in 2007, focuses this year on the kind of energy we use, in support of renewable energy. It's always a memorable event with landmark buildings across the world switching out their lights the hour.

About The Savoy Hotel

After one of the most ambitious restoration programmes in Britain, The Savoy was officially reopened in autumn 2010 by Prince Charles. Pierre Yves Rochon's three-year, £220-million redesign combined the Art Deco and Edwardian styles of the original and involved the complete building, including the courtyard, all the public areas and guest rooms.
