History to the present day
The buildings in Stanhope Place, where the Parkwood Hotel is situated, were built in the reign of William IV during the early 1800’s at the heart of a district then known as Tyburnia, located near the site of the infamous Tyburn Tree, the King's gallows between 1196 and 1783. The Tyburn tree was a huge triangular construction, the three posts were 18 feet high and the crossbeams were nine feet long - capable of hanging 24 (eight on each horizontal beam) prisoners at once. Records only show it being used at full capacity once, in 1649.
