Opened in 1910 in a quiet street just around the corner from bustling Victoria Station, The legendary Goring is much loved by its many guests who, whilst in London, treat the hotel as their "home away from home" and also by Londoners who love the ambience of a calm, relaxed country house hotel in which they can discuss business or meet with their friends.
