The Four Sea­sons at Ten Trin­ity Square

There’s some­thing uniquely ro­man­tic about London in sum­mer. The leaves are out and the city is awash with green. Cou­ples sit in the ma­jes­tic parks in the heart of the city, shar­ing a bot­tle of wine and a pic­nic un­til the last light starts to fade just a cou­ple of hours be­fore mid­night. And that’s be­fore we even get to the end­less cul­ture on of­fer. The Four Sea­sons at Ten Trin­ity Square must be one of the more ro­man­tic ho­tels in the Bri­tish cap­i­tal, set in a Grade II-listed Art Deco build­ing that hosted the first meet­ing of the United Na­tions. Sit­ting on the same site Wil­liam the Con­queror chose for the Tower of London, it is also a leisurely stroll across the river to Bor­ough Mar­ket, Shake­speare’s Globe and the Tate Mod­ern.

Why it’s per­fect:

There are 100 rooms and 200 bright young staff, so you know you’re go­ing to be treated beau­ti­fully. But it’s the clever concierge who will soon start to vie with your new spouse for the ti­tle of Most Favourite Per­son. The concierge has the keys to open every door in London—a city that can be dif­fi­cult to nav­i­gate for a visi­tor. Want seats in the stalls to the Don­mar Ware­house’s lat­est play? He’ll get them for you. He’ll also get you a ta­ble at The Clove Club, The Led­bury or Din­ner by He­ston—three restau­rants it’s nigh on im­pos­si­ble to score a book­ing at. But the ser­vice doesn’t stop there—the concierge can also ar­range sun­set cruises down the Thames, lav­ish pic­nics in Green Park com­plete with cham­pagne, or even tick­ets to the bal­let at Covent Gar­den.
