Hotel Fit for a Future Queen

Kate Middleton and her family stayed at a hotel with a rich royal heritage and just a stone's throw from Buckingham Palace. The Goring hotel, owned by the same family since it opened in 1910, is certainly a fittingly luxurious place for any discerning bride to stay on the night before her wedding. Even if you can't afford the room rates you can always enjoy afternoon tea and get a sneak peak at this historic hotel.

Hotel Fit for a Future Queen
 

The Goring Hotel

15 Beeston Place, SW1W 0JW
The five star Goring Hotel stone's throw from Buckingham Palace is the place where Kate Middleton spent her last night as an unmarried woman and a 'commoner'. Word has it that after William and Kate had retired for the night after the wedding, the party continued into the early hours at the hotel. This is certainly not the first time the Goring played host to royal guests. Previous royal visitors include Queen Mary, consort of George V, and her daughter-in-law, the Queen Mother, both of whom liked to take afternoon tea in the hotel. In 1945 King George VI, Queen Elizabeth and their young children celebrated the end of the Second World War here over a hearty sausage and scrambled egg breakfast, and just a few years later in 1948 Prince Charles's christening party was celebrated at the hotel with christening cake supplied by the Goring pastry chefs. You'll need deep pockets to stay as long as the Middletons did - their bill for the exclusive hire of the 71-room hotel has been put at 85,000; and Kate's top floor Royal Apartment will set you back 5,000 a night. But there are more budget friendly ways of seeing the inside of the famous hotel; you can always opt for afternoon tea, dinner, or a drink in the very traditional hotel bar... it's so old fashioned that modern technology is not appreciated here and you're politely asked to turn your moble phone off.
