So when you’re looking for a central London meeting venue, nothing comes close to The Royal Horseguards and One Whitehall Place.
It is a traditional and impressive sandstone building.
From your room at The Royal Horseguards, you can enjoy one of the finest outlooks in London, with many of our rooms offering panoramic views over the River Thames and the London Eye. In keeping with the rest of the Guoman collection of 4- and 5-star London hotels, all the bedrooms here have been meticulously designed to reflect the building’s individual architecture, style and character. Every room at The Royal Horseguards is air-conditioned, en-suite and has complimentary BT Openzone wireless internet access: your room rate also includes free use of our gym facilities.
From a morning cappuccino on the Terrace to a sumptuous five-course dinner in One Twenty One Two; at The Royal Horseguards you can enjoy some of the finest food and drink in London, without leaving the hotel. Winner of two AA Rosettes, our One Twenty One Two Restaurant has made The Royal Horseguards one of London’s most desirable dining destinations. With the hotel near Theatreland, it’s the ideal choice for a pre-show dinner. And in fine weather – which, despite rumours to the contrary is not entirely unknown in London – our Terrace provides a spectacular setting for alfresco dining. The Lounge is our friendly all-day bar – the perfect place for informal meetings, or a light snack any time. And in the former home of the National Liberal Club, Churchill’s Bar (which you’ll find next door at one Whitehall Place) is named after one of its most famous members.
Gracing the banks of the River Thames, The Royal Horseguards began life as the National Liberal Club, offering its members a sanctuary from the rough-and-tumble of Westminster politics. Designed by Alfred Waterhouse, whose architectural legacy in London includes the Natural History Museum, it played host to some of Britain’s greatest writers, thinkers and political leaders: the foundation stone in our cellars was laid by William Gladstone, one of five Club members who went on to serve as Prime Minister. More than 120 years on, this magnificent 5 star hotel near Charing Cross, Trafalgar Square and The Strand, has been restored to its full Victorian splendour. But we’ve never forgotten its origins as a warm, welcoming and relaxing haven in the very heart of London. The views you’ll enjoy from your room or our restaurant over the River Thames and landmarks including the London Eye are truly breathtaking. With 281 luxurious bedrooms, including a choice of Suites and an Apartment, The Royal Horseguards has a grandeur and opulence to match its prestigious Whitehall address. Next door is One Whitehall Place, our dedicated meetings and conference facility. Part of the same magnificent building, it shares the hotel’s unique splendour and ambiance, giving any event a real sense of occasion. And with the hotel near Charing Cross Tube and mainline stations, it’s easy to bring people together for business or pleasure. We invite you to discover The Royal Horseguards - part of the Guoman collection of 4- and 5-star London hotels. A unique hotel experience, in a city like no other.
