About Us


Skylon is a D&D London restaurant located in the Royal Festival Hall with panoramic views of the South Bank and River Thames. The elegant restaurant serves modern British cuisine in a relaxed atmosphere separated by a stunning central bar, which is renowned for its Skylon Martini and innovative cocktails.

Taking its name from the original iconic structure that was built for the 1951 Festival of Britain, Skylon’s restaurant design echoes the style of the Royal Festival Hall during the same period, with unique contemporary touches.

D&D London stands for CEO Des Gunewardena and COO David Loewi who led the buyout of Conran Restaurants in September 2006. The company has been backed by leading UK equity house LDC since April 2013 and owns and operates over 43 leading restaurants in London, Manchester, Leeds, Paris and New York.

At D&D London, we are fully committed to minimising our impact on the planet.
