Over looking iconic Hyde Park, The Royal Lancaster is one of London’s finest hotels. Located near the city center, this hotel is a prime spot for enjoying all the sites that London has to offer. The Royal Lancaster is only a stone’s throw from Oxford Street, one of London’s most famous shopping districts and home to the legendary Selfridges. There is so much to see and do in London, but the luxuries at The Royal Lancaster will have you never wanting to leave. This is truly the best of both worlds for a perfect London honeymoon location.
We Simply Adore
The views are simply jaw dropping. From The Executive Suite you will enjoy the unbelievable panoramic view of the entire London Skyline. During the day the whole of Hyde Park can be seen from this vantage point; the manicured gardens, the Princess Diana Memorial, and the Serpentine Gallery are all visible from the comfort of your suite. Upon returning in the evening, draw up the remote control window shades, and a whole different perspective will appear before your eyes. To see the bright lights of London outlining one of the most famous skylines in the world is simply magical.
Note To Self
If you’re flying into Heathrow Airport, consider purchasing an Oyster card from the tube station located within the airport. With the Oyster card you can take the above ground train, called The Heathrow Express, straight to Lancaster Gate Station, which is a short walk from The Royal Lancaster. The entire journey should only take about 26 minutes. Speaking of transportation, you should definitely try out London’s mytaxi, a ride sharing app that uses England’s iconic Black Cabs but is a much more economical option.
Get the Dish
The Island Grill is the perfect place for a romantic dinner for two. Though the restaurant atmosphere is cool and casual, the service is nothing short of a fine dining experience. The well-informed staff is very knowledgeable of the menu and can provide great dish recommendations to please any palette. All ingredients used at The Island Grill are locally sourced and seasonal, keeping the menu fresh and exiting at all times. If you’re dining in early spring, the Braised Short Rib entree paired with your favorite red wine is a particularly delicious dish. This restaurant delivers on all fronts and really does justice to the beautiful hotel it lies within.
