Visit to the Reform Club

Thursday 2 November — Book now
10.30am to about 12.30pm. A tour of the Reform Club.

The Reform Club in Pall Mall is one of the finest Victorian buildings in the country, a palatial masterpiece by Sir Charles Barry that has remained largely unchanged since it was completed in 1841. In his design, Barry was inspired by the Italian Renaissance architecture that he absorbed as a young student in Rome, departing markedly from the gothic style he used for the new Houses of Parliament. Much of the interior historic decoration dates from EM Barry’s restoration of 1878, which at the time was considered to be a great improvement on that of his father. The most magnificent room is the Library. The Club still possesses much of the original furniture. Meet at the Reform Club, 104 Pall Mall, London SW1Y 5EW. Tube: Piccadilly Circus; Green Park. Rail and tube: Charing Cross. £20 including tea, coffee and biscuits. Booking required.
