4,800 miles of ribbon, 7,200 canapés and 3,750 bottles of fizz – all in a month’s work at one of London’s top venues

One Whitehall Place at The Royal Horseguards Hotel infographic
Guests attending weddings at one of London’s top venues get through enough champagne to fill over 14 bathtubs and eat enough canapés to feed 90 double decker buses full of people each month, whilst the amount of ribbon used is the equivalent of 321,000 times the height of Buckingham Palace, according to new statistics.

These are just some of what has been brought to life in a new tell-all infographic by the iconic One Whitehall Place at The Royal Horseguards Hotel to celebrate the launch of the venue’s new website –

General manager of One Whitehall Place at The Royal Horseguards Hotel, Niels Sherry, explains: “We’ve had a lot of fun with this project, working out things like how many tea bags we get through a month and how many hours are spent polishing silverware – and the statistics are unbelievable. More than anything else, this project has highlighted the hard work and dedication of our events team who put their all into delivering outstanding events, conferences and weddings for our clients.”

One Whitehall Place’s first stand-alone website allows visitors to view the 13 spaces available for private hire, including the impressive Gladstone Library, the Whitehall Suite and Churchill’s Bar. Browsers can also embark on a virtual tour of the property and find out about the latest festivals and events taking place nearby.

One Whitehall Place at The Royal Horseguards Hotel is a grade I listed building, completed in 1887. The property was owned by the National Liberal Club up until 1985 and the organisation still occupies part of the building. Due to its Whitehall location and short walk from the Houses of Parliament, the hotel and One Whitehall Place was regularly frequented by former MPs and Prime Ministers including Sir Winston Churchill and William Gladstone, who laid the original foundation stone in the cellar in 1884. One Whitehall Place is home to the largest free standing marble staircase of its kind in Europe and is a popular location for weddings.
