The theater received an amazing honor when the celebrated Royal Shakespeare Company decided it would use the building as its main venue in London during the 1960s.

Covent Garden
Covent Garden traces its historical lineage back to an open-air market in operation during the mid-17th century. The area began to assume its modern appearance during the 1800s, when a market hall transformed Covent Garden into a stable commercial center. Covent Garden is now filled with countless shops, restaurants, and theaters. Guests can visit several cultural institutions at the site as well, like the London Transport Museum, the Royal Opera House, and the Somerset House.

Somerset House
For three centuries, many prestigious institutions called the Somerset House home. Constructed on the site of a former Tudor palace, organizations like the Royal Academy of Art, the Royal Society, and the Society of Antiquaries once resided at the Somerset House. The building now serves as a massive complex featuring art galleries, restaurants, and a seasonal ice rink.

Trafalgar Square
At the height of the Napoleonic Wars, a fleet of British ships lead by Admiral Horatio Nelson encountered a much larger Franco-Spanish fleet off the coast of Spain. Nelson decimated the combined French and Spanish armada, but at the cost of his own life. The conflict would forever be known in British history as the Battle of Trafalgar. Trafalgar Square serves as an enduring monument to Nelson’s victory, which guests can easily visit from the hotel.

Big Ben
The clock tower overlooking the Palace of Westminster, which holds the giant bell named Big Ben, is arguably the most iconic landmark in all of London. Big Ben first started chiming in 1859 and has rarely stopped since then. A registered UNESCO World Heritage Site, the clock tower attracts thousands of visitors each year. In 2012, the clock tower was renamed “Elizabeth Tower” to commemorate Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee.

London Eye
The London Eye is a giant Ferris wheel situated along the River Thames, just across from the Palace of Westminster. The largest Ferris wheel in Europe, visitors ride the London Eye to obtain striking views of the city.

Buckingham Palace
Since 1837, the British Royal Family has used Buckingham Palace as both its official residence in London, as well as its main administrative headquarters. Even though the palace functions as a private residence for the monarchy, its official state rooms are open to the public during the summertime.

Oxford Street
While Oxford Street has existed since the time of the Romans, its current designation as a prominent commercial center came about during the 12th century. Many prestigious department stores started appearing along Oxford Street in the early 1900s, including Selfridges and John Lewis. Today, Oxford Street draws avid shoppers from around the world with its array of upscale stores.
