Found in the heart of historic Mayfair and just half a mile from Buckingham Palace, The Athenaeum is located in one of the most prestigious locations in London.
Nestled between two of London’s Royal Parks, The Athenaeum is the perfect spot from which to enjoy the scenery and walks in Green Park and Hyde Park. In fact, you just have to walk across the road from The Athenaeum to find yourself immersed in Green Park. Just a short meander further is Buckingham Palace, while Westminster, the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben are just a short stretch beyond. St James’s Palace and Kensington Palace are just a stone’s throw away too.
London’s great museums and galleries are all nearby, from the National History Museum in Kensington to The National Gallery near Covent Garden. Directly from the hotel, it’s possible to soak up the atmosphere of historic Piccadilly or get lost in Mayfair’s pristine streets and charming communities such as Shepherd Market.

The Athenaeum is located between Green Park and Hyde Park Corner tube stations, and it’s an easy 5 to 7-minute stroll to the hotel from either. Green Park is on the Jubilee, Victoria and Piccadilly lines, and Hyde Park Corner is on the Piccadilly line.
Mayfair is well connected to all of London’s major transport hubs. From Victoria station it’s only one stop to Green Park, while King’s Cross St Pancras is just a few stops away on either the Victoria or Piccadilly lines. Travelling from Paddington? Take the Hammersmith & City line to Baker Street and then change for the Jubilee line.
We can always arrange car hire or a lift from the airport, but getting to central London is a doddle no matter which airport you’re flying in to. The Gatwick Express is a nonstop 30-minute train ride between Gatwick Airport and Victoria train station, then it’s just a quick tube ride to Green Park. The Stansted Express is a similar service, taking you to London Liverpool Street in just over half an hour. Another direct train is the Heathrow Express, which runs every 30 minutes and takes you to Paddington station. Heathrow is also on the Piccadilly line, but only catch the tube if you have time on your hands – there are quite a few stops!
Need a lift to or from the airport? We can sort that out for you, no problem. Just give Concierge a call. Alternatively, if you’d like to arrange car hire or a chauffeur, we can organise that, too. We also offer a valet service (see below for prices).
If you’re driving in to London, we will happily valet park your vehicle. Parking can be added to your room bill. Rates are as follows:
