A Summery Stay at Corinthia London

Whether you’re here on business, for a weekend break or a few days with the family, Corinthia Hotel London is in just the right spot for you to enjoy some of the most memorable sights in the capital. Corinthia London also welcomes you to enjoy a flowery, sunny ambience, especially in the Garden Lounge, where you can relax al fresco after a day visiting the city’s most iconic sights.

out and about

A stone’s throw from the River Thames, Corinthia London gazes across at the London Eye, the world’s tallest cantilevered observation wheel, a relatively new symbol for the capital. Gradually ascending to a height of 135 metres, its 32 glass capsules offer stunning views of the city. Interactive guides take you on a 30-minute tour in several languages. Open daily, it’s just a ten-minute walk from the hotel across the Golden Jubilee Bridge. If you don’t have a head for heights, City Cruises from the adjacent London Eye Pier offer a relaxed way of exploring London while soaking up the sun. Boats with panoramic windows and open upper decks leave every 30 minutes all year round, and you can also plan ahead for lunch, afternoon tea or Showboat Dinner cruises.

Back on dry land, just west of the London Eye, three attractions for children are waiting to be discovered in the Riverside Building of County Hall. The Sea Life London Aquarium is a magical world of amazing sea creatures with an Ocean Tunnel, glass Shark Walk, and this season’s special show on the world of the jelly fish. Shrek’s Adventure! London is an indoor walk-and-ride attraction inspired by the hit Dreamworks film. There are ten life fairytale shows featuring all the kids’ favourite characters, captivating storytelling, a magic mirror maze, 4D ride and superb animation. For a total change of scene (and age group), the London Dungeon is a scary, hilarious attraction which takes you back in time and face-to-face with torturers, judges, jailers, murky settings, nerve-racking surprises and the tower of terror.

On the same side of the river, the lively Southbank area is a popular rendezvous for Londoners and tourists alike, especially in fine weather. Find lots of riverside restaurants, street performers, shops and the Southbank Centre comprised of the Royal Festival Hall, Hayward Gallery, Queen Elizabeth Hall, Purcell Room etc. The Southbank Centre also hosts an open-air market on weekends with street food dishes cooked on the spot.

sightseeing north of the river

On leaving Corinthia London, you can take a leisurely stroll down Whitehall or the Victoria Embankment along the Thames or Westminster Pier, another departure-point for river cruises and right next to the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben. Westminster abbey is nearby, together with the Imperial War Museums and Churchill War Rooms, open daily to fans of history, from 10am – 6pm.

Alternatively, head for the Mall which runs along St James Park, a vast expanse of greenery with its lake and pelicans, much-loved by joggers, children and those simply wanting to relax in the sun. Just next door, Horse Guards Parade plays host to ceremonial events throughout the year.

At the end of the Mall and St James Park are the Victoria Memorial and Buckingham Palace, with the Changinfg of the Guard at 11:30am on alternate days of the week. From 22nd July to 1st October, summertime tours of the Palace include the opulent State Rooms, entry to the Royal Gifts Exhibition and a visit of the Royal Park with views of the famous lake.

chilling out in THE GARDEN LOUNGE

A cool hideaway inviting you to relax, catch up on the news, meet up with friends and enjoy coffee, gourmet delicacies and summer cocktails in the open air.

Designed by the David Collins Studio, The Garden Lounge is a snug retreat in winter and a breath of fresh air in summer. At the centre of the hotel, adjacent to the Crystal Moon Lounge with its stunning Baccarat chandelier of 1,001 crystals, it invites you to sink into comfy brick-red sofas and armchairs, set out around marble-topped tables.

In line with the hotel’s fondness for distinctive modern art, the lounge’s tall columns and plinths are adorned with mosaics by French artist Mathilde Jonquière. These subtle compositions in gold, cream, terracotta and grey provide a wonderful backdrop for relaxing in the lounge with its charming bar area. A plethora of green plants and flowers add a final summery touch.

al fresco dining

Open every day, The Garden Lounge serves breakfast from 7am to noon, and lunch from noon to 4pm. Breakfast is a leisurely affair ranging from mini croissants to Loch Var smoked salmon, eggs benedict and maple-cured bacon sandwiches. All-day dining items include caviar, salads, grilled beef burgers, British and international cheeses with chutney and crackers, vegetarian suggestions and enticing desserts. Plus items from the Brain Power Menu, such as superfood salad, organic salmon and green mango, coconut tapioca with papaya and lemon balm.

Then comes a real treat: traditional afternoon tea, the perfect accompaniement to the English social season. Delicate finger sandwiches, delicious homemade scones with clotted cream and jam and a choice of irresistible fancies are all served with a range of teas or, for an extra touch of luxury, a glass of chilled Laurent-Perrier Champagne.

As the sun sets, The Garden Lounge transforms itself into the perfect setting for summer cocktails on balmy, dusky evenings beneath the stars, with snacks and suppers served until 1am. For fans of cigars, the bonus is a walk-in Humidor with a cigar sommelier to advise on a selection of over 50 top-notch brands.
