2. Six-Course Lunch Tasting Menu with 4 Wine-Flights for two people at Paris House in Woburn, with a Helicopter Arrival

An elegant and truly unique restaurant set in the stunning deer park of the Woburn Estate in Bedfordshire. Paris House is the perfect setting to enjoy exciting food, fabulous wines and great British hospitality.
The tasting menus are based around dishes constructed with natural flavour combinations using the best seasonal produce available. Each menu has been created to showcase the ingredients and provide you with a memorable dining experience. The wines are sourced from all corners of the globe to accompany an equally exotic collection of regionally inspired dishes.

Arrive for your lunch in style with a helicopter arrival…..
A helicopter, kindly donated by Mr & Mrs Marks, will take you from the car park of Club Towers to Paris House for your lunch at the mutually agreed date & time.
Note that the date of the helicopter arrival is subject to various conditions such as obtaining Woburn Estate’s permission at least a week in advance, the helicopter pilot’s availability and weather conditions. Should the helicopter arrival to Paris House becomes unavailable on the bidder’s desired date, Mr Marks has kindly offered to provide a 20-minute helicopter ride to the winning bidder to take place on a separate, mutually agreed date.
