Sea Containers London

Situated on the banks of the River Thames, the famed Sea Containers London uniquely offers river view balcony suites directly on the Thames. Working with Design Research Studio under the creative direction of renowned British designer Tom Dixon, the hotel captures the essence of the original building, exuding 1920s cruise ship glamour integrated with the modern twists and sophisticated design for which the Sea Containers brand is known. 

Guests will immediately be drawn to the giant, copper clad wall inspired by the hull of a ship, running from outside the building, through to the lobby and on to the river side of the hotel. Experience underwater tranquility and specialised treatments at agua Bathhouse & Spa, sample delicious food using locally sourced ingredients at Sea Containers Restaurant, where outdoor seating along the river walk is also available, and sample innovative cocktails from Mr Lyan at Lyaness with its iconic green marble bar and dramatic views of the Thames. 

The most glamorous of spaces is the rooftop bar, 12th Knot, with its glass box structure and outdoor terrace, featuring panoramic views over London. Uniquely reflecting the urban feel of the neighbourhood, Sea Containers London is within walking distance of landmarks such as Tate Modern, Royal Festival Hall, the National and Globe theatres, as well as Borough Market and the London Eye.
