Welcome to
Royal Lancaster London

 

A 5 star hotel with views overlooking the Italian Gardens of Hyde Park, Royal Lancaster London is a proud mid-century architectural icon. Fabulous views over Hyde Park and the iconic London skyline are just two of the reasons why the hotel celebrated 50 happy years in 2017. The hotel’s aspiration to provide truly charming hospitality continues in earnest.

 

 

With views over Hyde Park, Royal Lancaster London soars to the skyline, placing central London within reach of its guests. A location so near to Hyde Park as to make guests feel as though it was their own private garden! In 2017 Royal Lancaster London celebrated its 50th birthday and reaffirmed its position in the area around Hyde Park, and as one of London’s premier hotels.

 

Italian Gardens, Hyde Park

 

From Royal Lancaster London guests can see the Italian Gardens of Hyde Park.  The gardens are formed of four main basins and feature centrepieces carved from the famous Carrara marble of Tuscany. From the hotel it is enough for guests to either cross the Bayswater Road to find the fountains in motion, or to view the fountains from one of the many rooms in the hotel that overlook the area of Hyde Park.

It was Prince Albert that first took charge of the gardens at Osborne house, introducing an Italian garden, before bringing the same idea to Kensington Gardens. In 2011 the Italian gardens were restored and are recognised as being a site of such interest as to have been listed Grade II by Historic England.

This portion of Hyde Park is beautiful and very natural, and our guests enjoy walking, running, while enjoying nature, despite being very close to the West End of London.
