The Royal Horseguards Hotel & One Whitehall Place London Parties
With a riverside setting right on the banks of the Thames, The Royal Horseguards Hotel & One Whitehall Place London is one of the city’s most luxurious and awe-inspiring places to host a party or social event. Dating to 1884, the French chateau-style hotel is filled with Victorian grandeur and history. And if walls could talk, its event space, One Whitehall Place, would have a few tales to tell: It was once home to the National Liberal Club, and MI5 during the World Wars.
Have an intimate party in the Cellar, which once had a passage straight to the Ministry of Defence, or a drinks reception in the Terrace Room with access to the adjoining outdoor Terrace that overlooks the river.
For something grander, Whitehall Suite is a stunning room with large windows, chandeliers, and pillars that create a beautiful setting for an event for up 320 guests.
The Royal Horseguards Hotel is especially spectacular at Christmas; the lights of the city complementing the décor and ambience of the hotel and making it even more magical. Enjoy a festive dinner or Afternoon Tea in the lead-up, spend Christmas Day in the One Twenty One Two Restaurant, or have your large festive bash with food and dancefloor at One Whitehall Place.
