“A spacious courtyard decorated with palms, cupressus, and picturesque, feathery green plants, as though a bit of Kew Gardens had strayed into town to enliven the metropolitan bricks and mortar.”
Writer Howard Paul recording his impressions of the Palm Court in 1890.

Put simply, The Langham is the oldest five star hotel in London. That tells its own story. Inaugurated in 1865, the hotel quickly became a mecca for the movers and shakers of Victorian London. The Langham was also an innovative tour de force and was equipped with electricity as early as 1879. Today the hotel is the jewel in the crown of the six-property, four continent Langham Group.
