Allow us to take you back in time as you stroll around the local neighbourhood to discover the rich history of Covent Garden, The Aldwych and its connections to King Henry VIII.
During the course of the tour you will peer down the old ‘courts’ to see a hint of an older, darker period of history, find out more about the many plaques dedicated to famous writers, actors and musicians on the buildings surrounding the area and hear stories about some of the many theatres around the hotel - most over a century old - that have earned Covent Garden its nickname of ‘Theatreland’. On your return to the hotel, relax and ask your guide further questions over tea or coffee in our private guest lounge, Lounge at One.
