Fit for a King - London's most exclusive spots

Monday, April 17, 2023

If you're experiencing the Capital for the Coronation weekend, what better time to enjoy some of London’s most exclusive spots than with the glorious backdrop of British pomp and pageantry. Here’s our pick of London pads fit for a King.

They say it’s Chelsea’s most charming boutique hotel and we are inclined to agree, adding ‘chic’ and ‘very discreet’ to the list. There are few greater proponents of the city and country lifestyle than King Charles himself so we propose an in town stay at the gorgeous Beaverbrook Town House combined with a decompress at their sumptuous country retreat estate just outside the capital, set in the heart of the Surrey hills.
While the coronation is splashed across newspaper headlines, you can enjoy the lavish hospitality in what was the home of one of the UK’s most famous ever press barons, Lord Beaverbrook.

Sartorial travellers might enjoy the elegant, new Sir Paul Smith Suite at Brown’s Hotel. The famed designer has worked with Rocco Forte Hotels’ Olga Polizzi to create a rather wonderful suite for your next time in London, coronation or not. Signature stripes and colourful splashes abound in this seriously stylish retreat in the heart of Mayfair. Downstairs, it’s into the loving care of Jesus Adorno at Brown’s standout restaurant, Charlie’s

Any opening overseen by disruptive hotelier David Taylor (The London EDITION, Hoxton Hotels brand) catches our eye as guaranteed to be slickly run. While Shoreditch may not seem to be the most obvious King-spotting location in London, those who know have seen the then Prince Charles many times on frequent visits to his favoured charity, The Royal Drawing School, nearby.

A Royal Warrant holder and favourite for many years. Remember the night before William and Kate got married? Right in the heart of royal London, The Goring takes you as close as possible to Buckingham Palace itself. If the weather co-operates and it’s a lovely weekend, you’ll appreciate the cooling climes of their garden
