In the heart of London Victoria
You are in no danger of struggling to fill your weekend itinerary with all kinds of entertaining activities and excursions. Those with a fascination for all things royal will find The Rubens’ proximity to Buckingham Palace, The Royal Mews, and The Queen’s Gallery particularly convenient. The River Thames, the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, and The London Eye are several more examples of iconic London landmarks situated just a short stroll from us. For those seeking a break within the city, St James’s Park, Green Park, and Hyde Park are the perfect leafy retreats in which you can take a leisurely cycle or settle down for a picnic.
Multigenerational travel is at the heart of The Rubens experience, and we do everything to ensure our younger guests are entertained throughout their stay, so much so that we have our own Family Experience Manager on hand to help curate your perfect family itinerary.
Located so close to Buckingham Palace, we reflect our area’s connections by treating our younger guests like little king and queens, and this extends to our special Little Prince and Princess Afternoon Tea experience. Milkshake masterclasses and cupcake-decorating experiences are also available to nurture the talents of budding mixologists and pastry chefs. Give you weekend stay in London a familial feel by making use of our stylish and comfortable interconnecting rooms and family wings.
Memorable dining options
Our English Grill provides an opulent backdrop for a dining experience that relies upon the same produce suppliers that serve the Queen’s own kitchen. The Grill’s glass-walled kitchen will satisfy both your appetite and any fascination you may have with all aspects of the fine-dining process.
Overlooking Buckingham Palace
There are few finer ways to spend the afternoon of a weekend break in London than with a spot of Afternoon Tea. Our Palace Lounge, adorned by windows that display charming panoramas of the neighbouring Royal Mews at Buckingham Palace, is the ideal venue for a true Royal Afternoon Tea experience.

The getaway can be completed with a Full English breakfast the following morning.
