Lancaster House

Lancaster House is the only unaltered survivor of a group of extravagant private palaces which were a focus of social and political life in Victorian and Edwardian London. The house began as a Royal residence called York House when it was commissioned by the ‘Grand Old’ Duke of York in 1825.

The house also has a glamorous side; it has been used for receptions, dinners and catwalk fashion shows during London Fashion Week. In 2007 various rooms on the first floor were used in the filming of The Young Victoria, Disney’s National Treasure Book of Secrets and BBC/HBO’s production of Churchill at War.

It has entertained more Heads of State, politicians and celebrities than any other house in London.
