Whitehall Penthouse terrace with giant chessboard and London view

The Whitehall Penthouse

A giant chessboard awaits on a private rooftop terrace, overlooking London's attractive skyline. Not to mention, your very own personal butler.

The Whitehall

On Armistice Day, 1918, Winston Churchill stood at a window of this building watching the crowds celebrate below. Would the great statesman feel comfortable in The Whitehall Penthouse today? We think so. Certainly, he would appreciate the cigar humidor, the Savile Row-style dressing room and the services of his personal butler.
