Buckingham Palace has served as the official London residence of Britain’s sovereigns since 1837 and today is the administrative headquarters of the Monarch. The State Rooms at Buckingham Palace are open to visitors every year. For visitor information, please visit the Royal Collection website.
Imagine the peace and calm of a country hotel, endless manicured gardens to take afternoon tea or a pre-dinner cocktail and a timeless interior – in the beating heart of London.
Elegant, warm, intimate and personal – perfect words to describe The Goring. Being the closest hotel to Buckingham Palace it’s a regal favourite and received a Royal Warrant in 2013. Built in Belgravia during the Edwardian era by Otto Goring, it’s remarkably been run by subsequent members of the Goring family ever since.
Luxury prevails today in this impeccably English iconic hotel. From the Michelin-starred Dining Room, the silks on the walls, footmen and the grand piano in The Goring Bar. Pause and take in the exquisite Russell Sage designed interiors. This is the undisputed ‘baby grand’ of London hotels, often visited by Her Majesty The Queen and famously used by the Middleton family on the occasion of the marriage of Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
