The Ritz program

A 3-day shooting experience

British Country Sports has partnered with The Ritz London to provide our clients with the ultimate introduction to the very British pastime of simulated game shooting.  Clients who choose to take advantage of this exclusive and quintessentially British experience will enjoy three nights’ accommodation at The Ritz London and a thrilling 3-day sporting break.

Day 1

Arrival at The Ritz London. 
 In the afternoon, guests will visit James Purdey & Sons in Mayfair. Considered the king of Gunmakers, Purdey have been making the best London guns and rifles for over 200 years and are the proud holders of three Royal Warrants from Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and Their Royal Highnesses The Duke of Edinburgh and The Prince of Wales. 
Guests will be shown the range of rifles and shotguns available as well as a tour of the famous “Long Room”. This iconic room has been the heart of Purdey’s headquarters for over a century and houses a collection of some of their finest guns and fascinating artifacts. 
After returning to The Ritz, guests will enjoy a glass of Champagne accompanied by a briefing on the upcoming programme for the two days ahead. 
A four-course dinner will be served in the Michelin-starred Ritz Restaurant, at a time of the guest's choosing. 

Day 2

After an English breakfast, served either in The Ritz Restaurant or in the privacy of their room, guests will depart in a chauffeur driven transfer for a full day of ‘clay shooting’ at London’s premier shooting ground – The West London Shooting School.
A bespoke coaching session will be given in shotgun safety and the techniques of shooting at driven targets for those guests new to shooting. 
For the more experienced guests, it is a great way to receive focused instruction from some of Britain’s best shooting instructors. 
Lunch and afternoon tea will be served in the comfort of the Shoot Lodge and refreshments will be available throughout the day.
The evening will be at leisure to allow guests to relax and take advantage of all that London has to offer.

Day 3

After an English breakfast, served either in The Ritz Restaurant or in the privacy of their room, guests will depart from The Ritz in a chauffeur driven transfer for a Simulated Game (Clay) Shooting Day on a private estate.
The ‘Sim Day’ will be run in a manner similar to a traditional British driven shooting day and will consist of four to five drives with approximately 5,000 clays being thrown (with two drives shot before lunch and two or three during the afternoon) and each drive will consist of two flushes. 
Loaders and instructors will be on hand to assist guests throughout the day. 
Refreshments and lunch will be served on the estate and the day will conclude with afternoon tea, before guests are chauffeured back to The Ritz. 
The evening is free for guests to explore the city.

On day four, after a leisurely English breakfast, guests will depart from The Ritz.
