As of 25 March, 2020, the management of The Hongkong and Shanghai Hotels, Limited, owner and operator of The Peninsula Hotels, in agreement with and supported by Prime Development and Sir Robert McAlpine, made the decision to temporarily suspend on-site work at The Peninsula London project site due to public health concerns over the COVID-19 coronavirus.

The safety and security of our employees, contractors and vendors remains our highest priority and unfortunately, social distancing on construction sites is difficult to achieve. We believe this is the right and responsible action to take with regards to our civic duty.

All work on the site will cease until further notice, with the exception of essential roles such as security who will adhere to appropriate levels of social distancing. Offsite work and design will continue as planned.

We will keep all our stakeholders informed when we are able to get back to work as soon as possible. For any questions, please contact

The Peninsula London recently celebrated a major milestone, as the project moves closer to completion in 2021. On 19 June, the Rt Worshipful The Lord Mayor of Westminster Councillor Ruth Bush and other VIPs were invited to witness the topping out of the first core of the building and a time capsule ceremony, hosted by HSH Chairman The Honourable Sir Michael Kadoorie.

Sir Michael noted that on a site which had taken The Hongkong and Shanghai Hotels thirty years to find, it is envisioned that The Peninsula London will become a much-loved part of the local community and recognised as one of the finest hotels in the world.
