Presenting an astonishing attention to detail, a remarkable level of grandeur and a fairytale wedding venue like no other, The Langham hotel in London is a magical setting for the most memorable day of your life
Nestled amidst the hustle and bustle of London’s busy West End, the five-star Langham Hotel offers a sanctuary of peace, calm and serenity that strikes a chord with couples looking for a central location in which to hold their wedding.
The Victorian architecture and grand exterior entrance are juxtaposed with a classic décor that unites traditional and modern elements with ‘pops’ of gold and pink. The Langham’s signature floral fragrance – common to all hotels within The Langham group - pervades your senses on arrival, instilling comfort and relaxation… a feeling that remains until departure.
Europe’s first ‘Grand Hotel’, The Langham has been operating since 1865 when architect John Nash renovated it from a mansion in to the establishment that we know today. Surviving both World Wars despite destruction to the West Wing in World War II, The Langham has continued its consistently high profile guest-list throughout the centuries – welcoming the likes of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle to Lady Gaga. The hotel underwent refurbishment and a relaunch in 2009, re-establishing the opulence and decadence to which it has become accustomed.
The Langham is situated on Regent’s Street, boasting excellent access to four of London’s most sought-after areas: Marylebone, Fitzrovia, Mayfair and Soho. A short stroll to Oxford Circus or Bond Street tube stations, the hotel provides excellent links to Paddington and Waterloo train stations as well as London Heathrow and Gatwick airports.
