Listing London’s best historic and iconic hotels is simple – it’s keeping it to just ten that’s the challenge. The seventeenth-century George Inn is the city’s last remaining galleried coaching inn, but is now run as a pub, so we start instead as Regency London becomes Victorian: with nineteenth-century temples to opulent leisure and grand railway hotels.
London also has a growing number of period reconstructions, the best of which can catch the atmosphere of an era as brilliantly as a costume drama. And then there are high points in the history of modern London hotels: pioneers, plus a landmark property in another sense entirely. Enjoy our very personal selection of the best historic and iconic hotels in London.
