The Goring

London, England


A quintessentially British hotel complete with red-coated footmen and butlers, The Goring blends classic Edwardian charm with contemporary design and food in perhaps the best spot in London.

Key Features

  • The outside garden area offers a tranquil oasis in the middle of the bustling city
  • Many royals and celebrities alike have visited The Goring, including most of the Royal Family (it was known to be Queen Elizabeth II’s favourite in London) and Winston Churchill
  • 69 rooms and suites luxuriously decorated with silk-lined walls and marble bathrooms
  • The Dining Room serves traditional British dishes with a unique twist

Situated just across the road from Buckingham Palace on a quiet street in Belgravia, The Goring is ideally set for enjoying the best of London. Nearby Knightsbridge, Mayfair and Sloane Street offer excellent shopping and dining destinations, while an evening at the theatre is just minutes away.

Still run by the family who built it, The Goring is London’s last remaining family-owned luxury hotel. Renowned for its warm atmosphere and friendly service, every guest is made to feel like royalty.

Quintessentially English, The Goring has 69 rooms and suites each uniquely decorated with the finest furnishings. From its cosy queen bedrooms and suites with silk-lined walls and in-suite cocktail hour, to the Royal Suite which occupies part of the top floor and boasts a number of royal artefacts and antiques, each room is warm and inviting.

The hotel’s signature eatery is its elegant Michelin-starred Dining Room, serving traditional British cuisine prepared with fresh, locally sourced ingredients. The Queen Mother famously enjoyed Eggs Drumkilbo here – a lobster and egg-based dish that remains one of the most popular items on the menu. Post dinner, retire to the decadent Goring Bar and sip one of their signature drinks, perhaps in the company of the many lords and ladies who flock here. 

Why we love it

Located just across the road from Buckingham Palace, The Goring is a favourite among royals – and for good reason. With perhaps the most impeccable service in London, this is the perfect location to seek respite in the large private garden, surrounded by flowers and a central lawn used for croquet in the summer, or take afternoon tea on the terrace for a truly British afternoon.
