This Waldorf Astoria hotel at the edge of the 200-acre Syon Park might be new, but that doesn't mean it lacks old-school grandeur.

Drawing on the heritage of the Syon Park Estate, the rooms are luxurious with a modern twist (rich fabrics, big bathtubs, illuminated rain showers). For up to 500 guests, the Grand Syon Ballroom, with its Murano glass chandeliers, is a stunning backdrop.

Don't miss the Kallima spa for pre-wedding pampering.
