About the Author


Since first opening its doors Claridge's has been the destination for fashionable London. Bought in 1854 by Mr and Mrs William Claridge, the hotel received the ultimate accolade in 1860 when Queen Victoria visited Claridge's to see her friend Empress Eugenie of France. This was the beginning of a tradition of royal visits, which continues to this day.

Throughout the twentieth century Claridge's has been the home of the great and the good of the worlds of film, fashion, art, and finance. You can feel the energy and laughter in the life of the lobby and the restaurant.
