A ritual fit for royalty
At The Old Government House, we are proud to offer a collection of extraordinary experiences, exclusively curated with our treasured local partners, that explore our spectacular surroundings and showcase our food and drink partners.
The city’s most popular attractions are within easy reach, yet the wonderful green expanse of Kensington Gardens is directly outside the front door, with Hyde Park, The Serpentine boating lake and the Diana Princess of Wales’ Memorial Playground just beyond.
The Milestone's location is paradise for shoppers - with Knightsbridge, Harrods and Harvey Nichols only a short walk away. The hotel is on Kensington High Street, one of London’s most popular shopping destinations, while a short distance to the south you’ll find the long rows of glittering shops along Brompton Road, Sloane Street and the King's Road. Nearby Kensington Church Street offers the widest selection of art and antiques in London.
By tube (Kensington High Street station is 200 yards from the hotel) or a taxi, you are only minutes from vibrant theatreland - Piccadilly Circus, Shaftesbury Avenue, Leicester Square and the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden. Dive into the warren of narrow streets that criss-cross Soho and you’ll find endless old pubs, lively bars and countless restaurants.
A few minutes in a taxi and you’re in the heart of Whitehall, with Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, the Cabinet War Rooms Museum and the London Eye. From here you can board a boat and cruise down the river past the Tower of London, Tower Bridge, the financial centre of Canary Wharf and on to the National Maritime Museum at Greenwich. From Whitehall, Trafalgar Square, the National Gallery and the National Portrait Gallery are an easy walk away. Head in the opposite direction and you are soon at Tate Britain.
