Society of Exploration Christmas

This Yuletide, escape the cold winter weather and venture into the Society of Exploration. A festive world of exploration and adventure in the heart of Covent Garden…

Christmas ISN’T cancelled...

Whilst our top priority is ensuring a safe environment for our guests and team of explorers, we will still be spreading the Christmas cheer just like every other year! We understand that many individuals and businesses have had a difficult time in 2020; we are therefore being as flexible as we possibly can with the pricing and deposit requirements for our Christmas offers – whether it’s a table booking or private hire enquiry.

We hope to welcome you to Mr Fogg’s this Christmas!


Christmas Libations

A place of exploration and adventure, Phileas J. Fogg invites thirsty adventurers to indulge in worldly Yuletide libations inside the Drawing Room, Map Room and Victorian Train Carriage. Sip on a warming Negroni from our marvellous Mechanical Mixologist contraption, as you sit back and enjoy the festive exuberance of The Society and its explorers. Boasting wood-panelled walls, warm leather seating and a ceiling adorned in eclectic memorabilia, the new and improved Society of Exploration is simply the perfect setting for your Christmas soirée!
