The Goring has been recognized one of London’s finest luxury hotels for over a century and the only family-owned Central London hospitality establishment in its third generation of management. Opening its doors in 1910, it was the last hotel constructed during the reign of King Emperor Edward VII. The hotel has been lovingly run by members of the Goring family ever since. Today, the Goring remains the perfect place for any traveler to London who seeks a quintessentially English luxury hotel experience.

Nestled in the heart of Belgravia, one of the most exclusive and celebrated areas of central London, the Goring’s location is both convenient and gorgeous. Belgravia’s grand squares and stately mansions- not to mention it being adjacent to Buckingham Palace- make the neighborhood one of London’s most fashionable residential areas. Many of London’s most famous attractions- Buckingham Palace, Westminster Cathedral, the Houses of arliament and Big Ben, the River Thames and London Eye- are all within walking distance of the Goring Hotel. London’s beautiful Royal Parks (Hyde Park, Green Park, and St James’s Park) are also just a stroll away from the hotel.

The Goring’s sixty-nine rooms and suites are the embodiment of luxury, sophistication, and English charm. The Goring has recently commissioned some of the most outstanding British interior designers to make their marks upon the hotel’s accommodations, and the results are nothing short of fantastic. Each and every bedroom and suite has been individually designed. If you are seeking a room or suite that feels like home yet is extraordinarily chic and luxurious, the Goring is perfect. One of the Goring’s most famous contemporary visitors were Miss Kate Middleton and her family in the days prior to her marriage to Prince William in 2011.

Dining at the Goring is an unforgettable experience. The David Linley designed Goring Dining Room is a gorgeous and stately place to enjoy the finest quality British cuisine. Served in the Goring Lounge and Terrace, Afternoon Tea is a beautiful and enduring tradition at the Goring. The Goring Afternoon Tea has recently been honored with a truly top-notch accolade: The UK Tea Guild’s Top London Afternoon Tea Award 2013. During the summer months, guests can enjoy Afternoon Tea on the Veranda. The Goring Lounge & Bar is the ideal place to experience the buzz and excitement of London.
