Visit: The Travellers' Club
- The Travellers' Club |
The Travellers’ Club was founded at the end of the Napoleonic Wars as a place where gentlemen who travelled abroad might meet and offer hospitality to distinguished foreign visitors. This continues to be the role of the club; many high commissioners and ambassadors in London are members, as are British diplomats, explorers and others with significant connections abroad. The building was the first of Sir Charles Barry’s London club-houses in the Italian Renaissance style (he also designed the Reform Club) and it was completed in 1832. The style and decoration of the rooms – most notably the library – still reflect the characteristic taste of the English gentleman during the first half of the 19th century.
