The Autograph Collection is going royal in the UK with the introduction of two new hotels. Threadneedles in London and The Glasshouse in Edinbugh, Scotland, will represent the collection's first hotels in the United Kingdom.

Threadneedles sits just minutes from The Bank of England, St. Paul's Cathedral, Borough Market and The Royal Exchange. The former Victorian banking hall is highlighted by a hand painted stained-glass dome dating back to 1856.

The Glasshouse is built into the 150-year-old facade of the Lady Glenorchy church. The hotel has a rooftop garden, and several of the rooms have views over the Firth of Forth and Edinburgh New Town.
