Overlooking the vast greenery of London’s Hyde Park, the Mandarin Oriental is one of the city’s premier five-star hotels. The hotel’s lavish interiors and prestigious location make it ideal for luxury weddings, corporate events and parties of all shapes and sizes.
Opening its doors in 1901 under the name Hyde Park Court, the Mandarin Oriental was hailed as a striking addition to the London landscape from the beginning. The opulent Edwardian architecture has aged like a fine wine, offering a majestic contrast to the city’s brutalist architecture.
The hotel has always been popular with members of high society. In 1948, Lady Doris Vyner held her silver wedding party at the Mandarin Oriental, a soirée which was attended by King George VI. Almost a decade later Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Philip and the Queen Mother would attend the iconic Balaclava Ball at the Mandarin. The venue continues to be frequented by the rich and famous, with luminaries like Morgan Freeman and Sir Peter Blake visiting in recent years.
