Established in the 1850s, this elegantly timeless classic London hotel stands out as an art deco masterpiece and a true English institution, loved by movie stars, royalty, and global dignitaries alike. Six floors hold 203 beautifully appointed spacious rooms and suites and a recent extensive renovation has propelled this hotel to new heights of sartorial elegance.
A temporary home to Winston Churchill after his shock election defeat in 1945 and regularly visited by Cary Grant, Audrey Hepburn, Alfred Hitchcock and more recently Brad Pitt, this glorious hotel exudes class. For 12 years, the fine dining main restaurant was run by Gordon Ramsay and no trip to London should exclude an afternoon tea at this stunningly iconic “Grande Dame”. There are many 5-star hotels in London but nowhere quite like Claridge’s.
