Secrets of the City

Hotel Café Royal
London, United Kingdom

In 1951, Hotel Café Royal became the home of the National Sporting Club, holding black tie dinners before bouts often frequented by Muhammad Ali. The original National Sporting Club founders, the Earl of Lonsdale and the fifth Marquis of Queensberry also laid down their set of boxing rules, ‘The Queensberry Rules for Boxing’ in 1867.

As the spiritual home of boxing and as a nod to this profound heritage, the Akasha Holistic Wellbeing Centre offers Box Fit and Fight Club one-to-one or group classes.
