As London’s cultured independent hotel we own our location in Covent Garden. Yet on talking with local friends and neighbours, we found there are still things for us to discover the exquisite selection of Japanese silk-screened papers at stationers Choosing Keeping, exceptional vegan dining in Neal’s Yard and London’s oldest wine bar.
Curious to know more, we have assembled a collection of voices from the community to share their knowledge and give you a sense of surprise and discovery as you get under the skin of London. Their guides will hold your hand as you go off the beaten track to live as a Londoner with One Aldwych as your residence.
Our Curators have kindly shared access to exciting experiences for One Aldwych guests. With their fingers on the pulse of local life, these experiences will allow you to live like a Londoner during your stay. Whatever your passion there’s something to tempt you, from a sensory session at ScentSchool™ to a laugh-out-loud historic walking tour or the chance to meet the creative teams and casts from one of the West End’s most respected theatres.
