The pair of red brick townhouses that make up The Egerton House Hotel stands on 17th century land that the alderman of London entrusted to slaves being held by Turkish pirates. Each individually decorated room evokes the Tudors, with elaborate padded headboards, brocaded fabrics and original antiques. Afternoon tea comes complete with sandwiches, scones with Devonshire clotted cream, and champagne. The hotel’s selection of wine features traditional French classics and exclusive sommelier selections from South Africa.
