Our Inspector's view

You can read about The Ritz – Grade II listed, five star hotel, iconic setting – but you still can’t really imagine it without a visit. It’s everything they say it is and more, a haven of calm in the grand style, with old-school elegance and luxury at every turn. Begin with a glass of bubbly in the art deco Rivoli Bar to prepare your senses for the extravagant opulence of the dining room – a space to rival the Palace of Versailles, with its rich Louis XVI-inspired decor of murals, marble columns, painted ceilings, statues and glittering chandeliers reflecting from mirrored walls. An army of tailcoated waiting staff pulls off a correctly polite performance with classic, theatrical tableside service that avoids any hint of stuffiness. Extravagant ingredients are carefully prepared and make their appearance in suitably precise dishes, from native lobster with tomato and basil to Cornish turbot with asparagus or Bresse duck with apricot, almond and lavender.

About the area

Discover London

The UK's capital was founded by the Romans shortly after they invaded in 43AD. Since then it’s evolved into one of the greatest cities on earth. From a bloody, squalid history to the vanguard of fashion in the Swinging 1960s to the buzzing metropolis it is today, London has something for everyone. There are very British pursuits like the Oxford and Cambridge boat race, changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace and an impressive collection of traditional English pubs. And that’s not to mention world-renowned arts venues, galleries and museums, award-winning theatre and unrivalled shopping – all found within a few Tube stops of each other.

London’s royal history is not to be missed. Visitors can roam around one of Britain’s finest medieval castles and royal prison, and learn about the final days of Anne Boleyn at the Tower of London or, for the less bloodthirsty, visit the Queen’s London home, Buckingham Palace. Don’t miss out on exploring the capital’s Royal Parks – from St James’ Park and Hyde Park in the centre to the majestic Hampton Court and wilderness of Richmond Park in the southwest.
