Where is the best place to wach the royal wedding in London? There's been a surge in London hotel bookings for the period during the big day, on 29 April, and if you're looking for somewhere top-of the-range to watch William and Kate's nuptial celebrations, you couldn't pick a better place to lay your head than the St James's Hotel and Club. Situated in a quiet cul de sac off St James's Street, you'll be just a short hop from the route of royal wedding procession. Better still, the restaurant has just picked up its first Michelin star after just one year, thanks to chef William Drabble – former head chef at Gordon Ramsay's Aubergine.
When the wedding excitement is over, relax in the hotel's sumptuous bar – William's Bar & Bistro – where afternoon tea, cocktails and light meals are served. Alternatively, reserve a table in Seven Park Place and indulge in a gourmet meal, modern-French in style, but with a focus on seasonal British ingredients.
If you can't wait until April to book a London city break, the hotel is this month launching its Be Beautiful Master Classes for guests. Bethany Alderson, hair and make-up consultant to celebrities such as Karen Brady, will be leading three-hour beauty sessions encompassing four key looks.
