The history of the Royal Foundation of St. Katharine, one of the oldest charities in England is long and complex. It spans over 900 years and tells a remarkable story of renewal, survival and regeneration.
Situated in central London it is hard to imagine a more peaceful urban setting for a group or individual retreat.

"An oasis of peace and good value in the heart of the East End. A great alternative to soulless budget hotels."
We had a wonderful, relaxing time here at your beautiful guest house.
Thank you all at St.Katharine's for making us so welcome and for providing a calm and friendly atmosphere for our local groups retreat.
I have had, due to work pressures, a particularly stressful time. However the facilities at the Royal foundation allowed me to 'breathe' again, due to its calm assurance. <\blockquote>
