Opposite Buckingham Palace and a short walk from Westminster Abbey
41 directly overlooks the Royal Mews of Buckingham Palace – the only way you are going to spend the night any closer to Her Majesty is to come on a state visit! The Queen, of course, is at the very heart of her capital, so 41 is perfectly situated for visiting all of London’s major attractions.
Royalty on the doorstep
The Queen’s Gallery, displaying many of the best works of art from the Royal Family’s personal collection, is a two minute walk. Keep going another few yards and you are standing directly in front of the Palace itself. From here you can watch the magnificent spectacle of Changing the Guard. In the summer months you can also take a tour of the Palace’s breathtaking State Rooms.
London's most popular attractions within easy walking distance
From the Palace wander down the tree lined Mall, with lovely St James’s Park on your right and St James’s Palace on your left, and you soon pass through the magnificent Admiralty Arch and into Trafalgar Square. Turning right takes you down Whitehall, past the Royal Banqueting Hall, the Cenotaph, Downing Street and many of London’s most important government buildings.
After only a few hundred yards the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben and the London Eye appear on your left, while directly ahead is Westminster Abbey, where Prince William and Kate Middleton were recently married. Turn right again to enjoy a pleasant stroll along Birdcage Walk. Following the edge of St James’s Park you are back at Buckingham Palace. If you have still got the legs for it, wander past the Palace, head across Green Park, and visit Apsley House, splendid home of the great Duke of Wellington. All that, within easy walking distance of the hotel!
We're surrounded by museums, galleries and concert halls
Lovers of art and culture are also conveniently placed – The National Gallery, The National Portrait Gallery, Tate Britain, the Victoria & Albert Museum, the Natural History Museum, the Science Museum, the Royal Academy of Arts, the Royal Albert Hall, the Royal Festival Hall and the National Theatre are all a short cab ride away.
