Internally linked to the hotel, the adjoining Portland stone building at 10 Whitehall Place was built in 1910-1914 as a grand Italianate government building for the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food. Winston Churchill announced rationing during WWII from here, and Margaret Thatcher conducted her ‘Cod Wars’ with Iceland.
In 2007, 10 Whitehall Place became surplus to government requirements and was transformed in 2010-2011 into the Corinthia Hotel London: Private Residences providing 12 ultra-prime dressed residences, benefitting from 5-star hotel room services and internal access to the Corinthia Hotel and its amenities.
