Previous Years Olympia Horse Show Packages

Matinee and Evening Packages

To make the most of your day at the Olympia Horse Show and spend as much time exploring the fantastic Shopping Village, with over 200 shops to browse (the perfect place to look for last minute Christmas Gifts to mementos of your day at the event), the hotel stay for Matinee Packages is booked for the night BEFORE your visit to the International Horse Show, whereas for Evening Packages, the hotel stay is booked for the night AFTER your visit to the International Horse Show.

The Grand Hall Doors open at 9.00am and the Shopping Village opens at 10.00am.

This year we have changed our packages slightly. Instead of offering accommodation at a particular hotel we are letting you choose form our whole range of hotels – last I checked that is over 80 hotels including two star, three star, four star and even five star central and greater London hotels.
