This charming Victorian hotel holds a monthly antique book fair!
- Dating from 1898, this splendid Victorian style hotel combines the latest in modern convenience with old world charm and standard of service. Grandiose from the moment you step over the threshold, a large, ornate hallway with wood paneling and crystal chandeliers ends in a marble, pillared staircase leading to over 300 lavish bedrooms. The hotel is located near many of London's top attractions and will even organize excursions, so you don't have to worry about navigating the city. If, on the other hand, you just want to relax, then you can simply spend the day observing London street life in the informal, bistro setting of Virginia Woolfe's. Alternatively, if you fancy unwinding in the evening, then you can enjoy a pre (and post) dinner drink in Kings, a gentleman's club style bar - replete with burgundy, leather armchairs and dark mahogany tables.
