The Mandarin Oriental is one of London's most prominent hotels. It is the epitome of luxury and elegance and has long been a favorite of royalty. Tradition has it that the Queen would not allow any form of advertising within Hyde Park, it was insisted that the hotel's entrance, with the name above, should be moved from the Hyde Park side to Knightsbridge side. The Queen consequently mandated that the original entrance be preserved for Royal use, unless permission is otherwise granted by the Royal Household, this is still upheld today.
A showcase for Edwardian architecture, this is a handsome hotel and from the moment you step foot in the marbled foyer you know that you have arrived somewhere special.

When to go
It is very difficult to predict the weather in the United Kingdom - in the summer from May to late September is generally seen as the most pleasant time to visit. Rainfall is difficult to predict - but the UK does not receive as much as many are led to believe! In the winters, temperatures do fall, but there is nothing better than finding a remote pub with a roaring fire to sit beside after a long walk in the country.
