Both venues join the exclusive collection which champions the borough of Westminster and the diversity of venues available amongst the iconic sites.
Perfectly situated on the banks of the River Thames right in the heart of the Capital, The Royal Horseguards is opposite the famous London Eye and within easy reach of the key business centres, tourist and cultural landmarks of Westminster.
Following a complete multi-million pound refurbishment focusing on maintaining its essential British character and pedigree, the hotel offers the latest in state-of-the-art technology and boasts 282 perfectly appointed bedrooms and suites, many with beautiful river and city skyline views.
Commenting on the decision to become part of the collection Charles Morgan, value centre general manager at The Royal Horseguards, said: “Joining The Westminster Collection is a natural step for The Royal Horseguards Hotel as we continue to reinforce our position as one of London's leading and most distinguished hotels. We are looking forward to the enhanced and global reach this partnership will bring.”
Joining the collection alongside The Royal Horseguards Hotel is Berry Bros. & Rudd, fine wine and spirit specialists with event spaces on St James’s Street, Westminster. The venue offers a range of hospitality options, from tutored or walk-around tastings to canapé-and-wine pairing quizzes and blind tastings. Guests can choose between the historic cellars or the Townhouse and enjoy an unrivalled selection of wine from their 4,000-bottle collection alongside exceptional food.
Demetri Walters MW, head of private wine events at Berry Bros. & Rudd said: “We are delighted to have joined The Westminster Collection, we hope that our membership will contribute to the strength of the collection and we look forward to working with the members. Our historic cellars, and Townhouse, are remarkable private dining locations in the heart of Westminster and we hope that our membership will further strengthen our hospitality business.”
Both Berry Bros. & Rudd and The Royal Horseguards Hotel join hot on the heels of Regent’s Conferences and Events who became part of the collection in April bringing the total number of venues to 39.
Chairman of the collection Robin Parker said: “We are delighted to welcome Royal Horseguards Hotel and Berry Bros. & Rudd to our collection and look forward to involving them in all our activities. Our collection is extremely proud of the diversity on offer to event bookers in Westminster and the two new members only strengthen that offering. We are in the middle of a really exciting period for the collection and it is the perfect time for our new members to immerse themselves in everything we have coming up.”
