The Royal Horseguards Hotel & One Whitehall Place London Events

The Royal Horseguards Hotel & One Whitehall Place cuts a grand and imposing figure on London’s River Thames. The Grade II-listed building was built in 1884 in the style of a French chateau and its rich past has seen it be home to the National Liberal Club, as well as MI5 during the World Wars. Now a 5-star hotel and event space, The Royal Horseguards brings its traditional style and opulence into the 21st century. 

Whether a private dinner with friends, Christmas drinks with colleagues or a large or intimate wedding, an event at One Whitehall Place is one to remember. The Sicilian marble staircase that greets guests on entry to One Whitehall Place — the hotel’s event space — the original architecture and detailing, and awe-inspiring artwork are unforgettable, as are the magical Terrace Garden, unrivalled views across the Thames, modern British cuisine, and 5-star attentive service.
