Vegan & Vegan-Friendly UK Hotels in London, Cambridge, & Neighboring Areas

#1 Hilton London Bankside

2-8 Great Suffolk St, London SE1 0UG, United Kingdom
The Vegan Society teamed up with the Hilton to create London’s first fully vegan suite (hopefully, this is the first of many vegan suites for Hilton)! They looked at everything in the room, from the room keycard (made from pineapple waste) to all the goodies in the minibar; no stone was left unturned!

In addition to minibar snacks, the suite has a fantastic vegan in-room dining menu packed with yummy eats like cauliflower steak, muesli, veggie, Quorn scramble, and much more. 

This is definitely one of the best places to base yourself when you want to explore London or if you’re planning a vegan honeymoon — but book early because there is only one suite (for now, I hope).

#2 Temple Lodge Club

51 Queen Caroline Street, Hammersmith, London W6 9QL
This charming eco-friendly boutique B & B is a former Georgian Villa owned by a Welsh artist and designed by Sir Frank Brangwyn. When it was converted to cozy accommodations, the B & B partnered with the neighboring vegetarian café, The Gate, to provide a complete meat-free experience.

The glamping accommodations are made up of three luxury safari tents with a small kitchen, log-burning fireplace, and an outdoor wood-fired hot tub (don’t worry, there is indoor plumbing, too) — a far cry from traditional camping accommodations!

You can also feel extra good about staying here because all profits support their onsite animal sanctuary!
