The Ham Yard, the hotel in Wonderland
Inaugurated in June 2014 in a pedestrian square at the heart of London, just a stone’s throw from Picadilly, the Ham Yard is an “urban village”. Unusual, dressed up in elaborate colours, abundant in Art deco treasures, this spot exudes joy and makes you feel as if you have fallen through the looking glass! Kit Kemp, the designer, emphasises cosy British style interspersed with ethnic detail, giving it a graphic vibe. There are 91 bedrooms and suites, 24 apartments but also shops, a winter garden perfect for afternoon tea, an excellent restaurant whose prices remain reasonable (and one of London’s hidden gems!), a rooftop, a spa and, surprisingly, a bowling alley and nightclub!
