The Ampersand Hotel’s unique concept is inspired by the capital’s world-famous museum district and the iconic ampersand symbol, which illustrates the hotel’s role in connecting its guests to the best of South Kensington. The Ampersand Hotel is situated just a minute’s walk from South Kensington tube station, and is well connected to Heathrow airport.
From the interior design to the collections and curiosities, The Ampersand Hotel unites guests with the local surrounding area through the five themes of botany, music, geometry, ornithology and astronomy.
The Victorian values of discovery and wonder combine with a modern sense of whimsy to define all 111 rooms and suites, from the pattern of the V&A’s costume collection, to the Science Museum’s planets and phials, from the Natural History Museum’s ornithological drawings to the drama and ceremony of the Royal Albert Hall.
Their wedding licence is with the The Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea and therefore a registrar from there must be booked. Whilst an intimate ceremony for up to 25 may suit you, couples are also more than welcome to only have the wedding celebration at the hotel – from private dinners, to cocktail receptions or afternoon teas.
The Ampersand Hotel’s event spaces are ideal for stylish, intimate weddings. If you are choosing The Ampersand Hotel as your reception location, then up to 80 guests can be accommodated by using two of the event rooms located next to one another and accessible with interconnecting doors allowing guests to move with ease from one room to another.
