Swiftie-inspired stay at The Savoy

Swifties are demonstrating that the gig-tripping trend is stronger than ever, with Virtuoso reporting a noticeable impact on bookings – ahead of the Eras Tour’s arrival in Germany this July, the luxury travel network has seen a 60% increase in bookings to the country compared to 2023.

The blockbuster show arrives in London on 21st June, and those hoping to following in Taylor’s footsteps can head to The Savoy, where the star has become a regular guest and famously used the dazzling Royal Suite to shoot the video for her hit, End Game, with Ed Sheeran. Located on the River Thames within the hub of London’s theatre district, The Savoy invites fans to drop by for a drink in the American Bar or indulge in a delicious afternoon tea in the Thames Foyer, one of Taylor’s beloved London rituals.
