Royal bedrooms you can stay in

Lady Astor Suite, Cliveden House, Queen Victoria’s hideaways | Royal bedrooms you can stay in
Now known as the Lady Astor Suite, Queen Victoria took a liking to this room at Cliveden House when she came to stay in 1866

What could be more extravagant than a stay in a bedroom once used by Queen Elizabeth I or Queen Victoria? Here are some of the most splendid royal bedrooms you can stay in

Ever wondered what it would be like to spend the night in a bedroom fit for royalty? From rustic coaching inns to medieval manor houses, many historic buildings across the country that once accommodated our kings and queens have been opened up to guests.

So dig out those velvet pyjamas (embroidered with the family crest, naturally) and prepare to be pampered at one of these very fine royal bedrooms you can stay in, from Queen Victoria’s hideaways of Inverlochy Castle Hotel, Endsleigh and Cliveden House, to Fawsley Hall Hotel & Spa, where Queen Elizabeth I stayed in 1575.
