Celebrating its centenary in 2012, The Stafford is rich in historic intrigue – from the 17th Century to the present day. Located near some of London’s most historic landmarks, The Stafford is one of the oldest – if not the oldest – hotel near Buckingham Palace. It is also a stone’s throw from St. James’s Palace and is one of the oldest hotels near Trafalgar Square. Known for its intimate ambience and unique air of classic Britishness, The Stafford is one of the last standing hallmarks of legendary British Hotel grandeur and sophistication. It features a 380-year-old wine cellar, a Second World War museum, an American Bar and an award-winning restaurant, The Game Bird. The Stafford has also worked in partnership with Tanya Baxter Contemporary Art Advisory to exhibit a specially curated, unique collection of artwork to provide a creative experience throughout the hotel.
The upcoming special exhibition of Modern British art highlights the success of the Modern British Art market and compliments The Stafford’s history of offering an experience of the very best of British. Featured artists include John Hoyland, Bridget Riley, Sean Scully, Frank Auerbach, Adrian Heath and Lynn Chadwick amongst others.
