Ten Trinity Square: The New Luxury Four Seasons Destination in London

10 Trinity Square, Tower Hill, London. Redevelopment for hotel, residencies and apartments.

Ten Trinity Square is a historical landmark in The City that has been luxuriously recreated in the form of a Four Seasons Hotel, The Residences at Four Seasons and The Club; they were all developed by the Reignwood Group to preserve the integrity of the original. Occupying a Grade II* listed building located next to the Tower of London and St Paul’s Cathedral, it offers stunning views of the Square Mile, Tower of London and the River Thames.

Located in the heart of the City, locally known as the Square Mile (the only London borough where workers outnumber local residents), it is home to institutions such as the Bank of England and the London Stock Exchange. In 1922, Ten Trinity Square, designed by Sir Edwin Cooper, was opened in 1922 by British Prime Minister David Lloyd George as the headquarters of the Port of London Authority. It was badly damaged during World War II and renovated in the 1970’s as an office block. In 2012 the building was featured in James Bond film Skyfall.

The Four Seasons Hotel London at Ten Trinity Square, due to open on 26th January 2017, occupies the lower ground to the third level and boasts an impressive decoration. The same room where the inaugural reception of the United Nations General Assembly in 1946 was held has been carefully restored and is now the magnificent UN Ballroom, a stunning setting for any event with extra-high ceilings, original woodwork and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking Trinity Gardens and the Tower of London. Another striking space for events is the Merchants’ Hall, a naturally-lit space from its circumference of windows above the spectacular building’s rotunda with light oak panelling and antique mirrors.

One of the best highlights of this new London’s elite hotel is the arrival of prestigious French chef Anne-Sophie Pic, who will be debuting in the UK with the opening of La Dame de Pic. SEEN predicts that Anne-Sophie, one of the only seven women in Michelin’s history to hold its three-star rating, will definitely make Four Seasons Hotel London at Ten Trinity Square one of the city’s brightest dining destination.

Other dining options in the hotel will be a new Asian concept restaurant, complemented by the Rotunda, under the building’s stunning art-deco style dome, the perfect all-day restaurant, bar and lounge to relax after the hustle and bustle of the big city of London.

The spa sanctuary that we can see in the photographs will be open from mid-March 2017. Featuring classical columns that reflect the architecture of London’s ancient Roman history, its serene atmosphere reflects the colours, clean lines and materials inspired by the minerals mined by the Romans. This spa will definitely be a must-see in our ‘Best-in-London’ places to indulge yourself.

The Residences at Four Seasons, on floors three to seven, are 41 luxury residences that range in size from one to five bedrooms. The designs draw inspiration from the building’s origins in the Roaring Twenties, a time of luxury and glamour. Independent to the Hotel and The Residences but also situated in Ten Trinity Square, Four Seasons is partnering with Chateau Latour and Reignwood to open a Private Members Club.

Mark your date on the calendar: Four Seasons Hotel London at Ten Trinity Square will open on 26th January 2017. For more information visit Ten Trinity Square.

Cocktails at the General Store

SEEN is tireless in her cocktail research, and very much enjoyed travelling to Highbury last week to try The General Store’s new summer cocktail menu and to check out the new interior. She was delighted to sample a Honey Mimosa, very sweet and fruity and just the ticket after a hot journey. It was, as its name suggests, a Mimosa with just a touch of honey.

Canaletto: A Drawing Workshop with Alexandra Blum

SEEN has long been an admirer of Alexandra Blum’s liminal and apocalyptic renderings of London’s urban spaces, in which the capital seems ever-changing. It is the artist’s job to capture not only space but the passage of time itself.

Love Hunt at the British Museum

SEEN had the pleasure (pun intended) of being invited to a ‘Love Hunt’ at the British Museum. The museum, founded in 1753, is committed to preserving art, culture and history, and has collected around 8 million objects. These artefacts come from every corner of the world, revealing a fragment of many significant moments in time, from Mesopotamia to the Vikings; from the Inuits to the Indians. So, when one embarks on a visit to the world famous British Museum, where does one start?
