At Brown's Hotel
Brown's Hotel Albemarle Street, London , W1S 4BP
Made up of 11 Georgian townhouses, Brown’s has a rich and intriguing history. Distinguished guests have included presidents and prime ministers, royalty and writers. One notable regular was Agatha Christie — her 1965 thriller, At Bertram’s Hotel, was inspired by Brown’s.
Brown’s was London’s first ever hotel. It opened its doors in 1837 under the watchful eye of Lady Byron’s maid, Sarah — and her husband, James Brown.
Alexander Graham Bell
Alexander Graham Bell visited London in 1876 to tell the Government about his latest invention. He chose to stay at Brown’s during his trip — and made the first ever telephone call from the hotel.
