Explore the fascinating history of St Ermin’s Hotel in Westminster.

Discover 4-star luxury at the end of a tree-lined courtyard, close to iconic landmarks including Buckingham Palace, where rooms range from cosy spaces ideal for solo travellers to family suites and accessible rooms.

Converted into a hotel in 1899, St Ermin’s Hotel was the headquarters of Winston Churchill’s Special Operations Executive (SOE) during WW2.

Look for clues to the hotel’s past in the lobby, where you’ll find an SOE silk inscribed with coded messages and the division bell, rung to call MPs back to the House of Commons. The ground floor gallery looks back on its history with spies and espionage.
