We grew up in London watching this majestic hotel fall into disrepair, and are thrilled that it has been restored to its former glory. This jaw-dropping Gothic building has been welcoming guests since 1873, with romantic, period features all still intact. Step directly off the Eurostar, or sleep over before your ‘journey to Hogwarts’ – it’s a quintessentially British place to stay.
