UK, London – There perhaps aren’t many hotels in London (or for that matter, the world) that scream posh more than The Ritz in Central London. Built in 1906, it was designed to be the most luxurious hotel in the world. And for 113 years now, The Ritz London has come to epitomise all things high society and luxury.

The architecture is distinctly Franco-American, largely inspired by the architectural traditions of Paris. This facade has grown to become a trademark institution in the Piccadilly district. Inside, the hotel is designed in the Louis XVI style, providing people a sense of yesteryear elegance.

The Palm Court remains the hotel’s most famous facility where guests can enjoy the famous “Tea at the Ritz”. Since its inception, the Palm Court has seen no shortage influential people partaking in afternoon tea from Sir Winston Churchill to Queen Elizabeth. The rooms are decked in cream-coloured Louis XVI setting with gilded armchairs — it truly is opulence at its finest.
