Thanks for popping in today!
I’m not in though.
Invitation to a business lunch in London.
At the Goring Hotel no less!
Ooooh I say!!! A day off.
(Poor old Dave has to hold the fort. Cheese and Pickle sandwich for him)
The Goring is London’s last family-owned luxury hotel.
Mr Goring is a very nice man too.
So let’s go find out a little more....
The power of Google, eh?!
Built by Jeremy Goring’s great-grandfather Otto in 1910, The Goring has been lovingly run by the Goring family since its inception.
Otto Goring saw great promise in a plot of land situated at the Buckingham Palace end of what today is known as Beeston Place. (Well spotted Otto!!)
After removing a public house and several cottages, the path was laid clear for the last grand hotel of the Edwardian era – The Goring.
Opened on the 2nd March 1910 this historic hotel was finally complete, along with en suite facilities and central heating in each and every bedroom
– widely believed to be a world first.
Cool. Well I am off to taste its fair cuisine
Aren’t I lucky?! Work and prep has to wait until Saturday,
because this is one experience I don’t intend to miss!
But I did log one of the projects I hope to do on telly on Monday.
So here’s a little preview...
I think she would have fitted in perfectly at the Goring back in the day, don’t you?
Come on! Let’s get that imagination of yours fired up!
Fill in the gaps if you please:
The year is.....
