At the very heart of London, moments from the Houses of Parliament, The Royal Horseguards is an imposing presence rising above the trees that line the Thames. This riverside hotel brings the traditional and the contemporary together beautifully, wearing its fascinating heritage with pride while offering every modern comfort. Rooms and suites are spacious and airy, with modern amenities including an iPod docking station and a flat screen TV, luxury toiletries in the bathrooms and crisp Egyptian linen perfect for weary heads. Many have Instagram-worthy views of the river and the iconic London Eye beyond. The award winning restaurant One Twenty One Two offers a contemporary menu with the best of British ingredients, while Equus, the hotel’s club-like cocktail bar, serves innovative creations named after famous former guests. A Winston Churchill, anyone?
To celebrate the recent refurbishment of the hotel’s terrace alongside Whitehall Gardens, the ‘Terrace Chapters’ were introduced – three chapters on a luxury picnic theme. The first was launched at Easter in collaboration with Hotel Chocolat. The second, launched in May, featured the Summer Picnic Hamper which is available throughout the summer. Guests can choose to build their own picnic by selecting nine items from a menu which includes charcuterie, a selection of cheeses and an array of delicious dessert options.
The third and final chapter launched in June in collaboration with Taittinger Champagne. The height of luxury in high summer, this chapter saves the best to last with champagne and canapés such as smoked salmon and caviar blinis.
A unique al fresco experience, the Terrace Chapters reflects the level of luxury living The Royal Horseguards has become known for, and is a delightfully different way to enjoy summer in the city.
