Wayfarer TV exclusive: inside the iconic Ritz Hotel in London

150 Piccadilly, London W1J 9BR

by James Wilkinson

Few hotels in London have the history quite like the legendary Ritz.

This hotel in a century old neo-classical building opened its doors in 1906 and it’s played host to Royal birthdays, films (most famously Notting Hill), concerts and to this day a classically epic afternoon tea.

You’ll also find the fine dining Ritz Restaurant, serves up a surprise six-course tasting menu, that’s best had with the matching wines, and 136 rooms and suites, including the expansive and The Prince of Wales Suite.

Also stop by the Rivoli Bar for a martini and speak to legendary concierge Michael De Cozar for some impossible-to-buy tickets.

WAYFARER flew to London with British Airways. The great British airline flies daily to London and the author recommends flying in Club World (Business Class), which features flat-bed seats, hundreds of hours’ entertainment on demand, a great selection of wine and some of the best meals in the sky.
