The Academy

Tucked away in the literary and intellectual heart of the capital is the Grade-II listed Academy Hotel. From the outside, this London townhouse seems straight from a Georgian period drama. Yet step inside the door, and you’ll discover contemporary interiors by New York-based Champalimaud design. The subtle mix of timeless glamour and modern luxury means everything about this boutique hotel will have you feeling comfortably at home.

The rejuvenated rooms and suites are ideal places to relax, away from the whirl of city life. Order seasonal dishes from the in-room dining menu to enjoy as you plan your next adventure. Downstairs, The Alchemy Bar, with its sleek, grey walls and jewel-toned furnishings, keeps the atmosphere bright and buzzing. The library is a peaceful nook complete with leather armchairs. While out in the private courtyard garden, afternoon tea is being served.

If shopping and cultural pursuits are the order of the day, you couldn’t wish for a more central location. Take your pick from the attractions of the West End and world-famous museums to academic institutions, libraries and Regent’s Park. With The Academy right on the doorstep of London’s first garden square, you’re only ever a short stroll away.
