In the heart of Westminster, The Albert, with its elaborate façade and magnificent Victorian detail, was built in 1862 and is the only surviving building from the earliest phase of the development of Victoria Street, when reformers tackled the area, then a notorious slum known as the Devil’s Acre, where half the population were known criminals.
A survivor of the Blitz, The Albert’s Victorian charm has remained virtually untouched through the years. There are a wealth of original features for our guests to enjoy, including hand-etched frosted glass windows, wrought iron balconies, gas lamps and ornate ceilings. There is some unique memorabilia too, including the House of Commons Division Bell and one of Queen Victoria’s napkins. Leading up to the carvery restaurant, you’ll find the Prime Minister’s gallery, a tribute to political figures of the past, some of whom have enjoyed The Albert’s fine food and drink over the years.
