The Reform Club was founded in 1836 in Pall Mall, in the centre of what is often called London’s Clubland. The founders commissioned a leading architect of the day, Charles Barry, to build an imposing and palatial clubhouse. It is as splendid today as when it opened in 1841. Membership was originally restricted to those who pledged support for the Great Reform Act of 1832, and the many MPs and Whig peers among the early members developed the Club as the political headquarters of the Liberal Party. The Club now has no political affiliations, but has a rich and varied heritage.
the group will meet for coffee at 10.30 am followed by the tour which starts at 11 am.
This event has been organised by the Kent Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
