    About

    History and luxury go together like tea and scones at The Royal Horseguards, a five star member of Historic Hotels Worldwide. A bad room doesn't exist at this hotel, but the best are on the higher floors, with beautiful views of the Thames River.

    In the Lap of Luxury

    The Royal Horseguards' 281 guestrooms feature Victorian-meets-contemporary decor, and are well-equipped with luxury amenities, including bathrooms with heated floors, Elemis toiletries, iPod docks, complimentary Wi-Fi, and multiple flat-screen televisions -- including one in the bathroom.

    Dining at The Royal Horseguards is an excellent proposition, with options including the award-winning One Twenty One Two Restaurant, al fresco dining on the Terrace, and a cozy lounge for guests to take traditional British afternoon tea. The Equus Bar serves cocktails named for the hotel's most famous former guests, like Winston Churchill and George Bernard Shaw. Additional facilities include 24-hour business and fitness centers.

    Overlooking the London Eye

    The Royal Horseguards occupies a prestigious location on the Thames in central London. Some of the city's best attractions are within a mile of the hotel, including Buckingham Palace, Picadilly Circus, trendy Soho, the National Gallery, Leicester Square, Covent Gardens, and the London Eye. The Royal Horseguards is also convenient to public transit, with the Embankment tube station and Charing Cross train station each within a 5 minute walk.
