The Langham, London

1c Portland Pl, London

by James Wilkinson

A short stroll from Oxford Circus, the grand Langham London isn’t just the place to stay for the legendary cocktails in the Artesian Bar (especially our drink, the Pistachio Batida) and shopping mecca location.

Here, the rooms are classically stylish and a steal for the 244 pound rate you’ll find during the off-season (compared to 440 pounds this month), while the day spa is amongst the best in the capital.
