Just past the frenetic pace of Piccadilly Circus, an unassuming, quiet lane leads to Ham Yard. Tucked away from London's chaos, its quirky surrounds beckon you to slow down in a city that seemingly never sleeps.
Despite Ham Yard being so close to some of London’s busiest areas, the hotel retains a zen-like atmosphere with a very British touch. Spacious rooms overlook the quaint courtyard or lively Soho. Floor-to-ceiling windows, vibrant colors, and eclectic art keep rooms bright and cheerful even on London’s dreariest of days. No two rooms at Ham Yard are the same. Each one is like a witty, painted canvas. The owners of the property are avid art collectors and their playful treasures are displayed throughout.
Over-sized botanical prints crawl all over the walls adding another touch of whimsy. Even the Ham Yard itself smells like an English garden. Flowers are brought in from the historic Covent Garden daily to adorn the lobby and rooms. Sign up for a flower arrangement class to learn how to freshen up your own home.
Ham Yard is perfect for families wanting to get a little peace and quiet after exploring London’s most iconic sights. Children (of all ages) will delight at the hotel’s bowling alley, imported all the way from Texas. Ham Yard gives kids the extra special treatment; expect to receive a book about London, and in the warmer months, a voucher for the ice cream trolley. Cookies and milk are a sweet treat.
This is London, home to each and every cuisine your heart (and tummy) desires. Order room service from the nearby Japanese restaurant. Pull up a stool by the bar and sip a cocktail. When the weather is pleasant, al fresco dining or afternoon tea is a must. Whimsical teacups and pots were designed by co-owner Kit Kemp for Wedgwood.
The restaurant at Ham Yard is a vast space warmed up with patterned wallpaper and chevron settees. Seasonal, locally farmed food ensures a creative menu constantly in flux, but British standards like fish and chips are a constant.
The library is a celebration of printed textiles and quirky art. Cozy up by the fireplace on the herringbone chairs, tall bookcases rising up the wall around you. Spend some tranquil time on the rooftop terrace and enjoy the small garden the chef uses for inspiration for his next concoction. Breakfast is served up top as the fountain gurgles and the bees buzz about the hive. Their honey is used to make the delectable cakes at Ham Yard.
Don’t miss pampering at the spa and nail salon, your one-stop shop for looking your best ahead of an evening out in London. The famed West End Theatre District is right around the corner, and so too are many restaurants and bars.Request Information
