Not only do they offer an indulgent getaway, but they're also equipped with all you need to keep children comfortable and entertained in fantastic locations close to many of the city's main attractions.

The Langham:

With a prime location in central London, The Langham is the ideal base when exploring the capital, and better still – it has a number of newly-refurbished family rooms with charming views over Regent Street and space for up to five guests.
