Park Lane Hotels - London

Mini guide to Park Lane

     

Park Lane makes up the western border of Hyde Park and leads down to Green Park. Along Park Lane, walking south from Marble Arch, you will find some of the classiest hotels in London, such as the Dorchester and Park Lane Mayfair, as well as the showrooms of luxury car dealers.

As you stroll down Park Lane, you will come to Green Park, which once formed part of Henry VIII's hunting ground. In the 17th century, Charles II converted it into a Royal Park. It is a nice getaway from the hustle and bustle of Central London; pull up a lawn chair and enjoy the trees and grassland. It is also a favourite with early-morning joggers.

Here you will also find Spencer House, built in 1766 for Earl Spencer, an ancestor of Princess Diana. It is one of the best examples of 18th century neo-classical architecture and is lavishly furnished and decorated. Access is via guided tour only. The closest tube station is Green Park.

Strolling down Piccadilly, you will see the Royal Academy of Arts, housed in an 18th century Palladian mansion that was originally built for Lord Burlington. It is famous for displaying major international art exhibitions and it is well worth finding out what is currently on display.

Right behind the Royal Academy you will find the Burlington Arcade, which is London's longest and most expensive 19th century arcade. It's a wonderful place to browse and shop.

By no means a cheap area to stay, Park Lane and Mayfair are home to the most luxurious and expensive hotels in London. As the area is not really well served by the tube, a cab may be the best way to get around; however, it is a short walk away from either Green Park station (Jubilee and Piccadilly lines) or St. James's station (Circle or District lines).
