The Royal Overseas League, London - SW1A 1LR

Tucked away at the end of a quiet side street in St James’ you’ll find the beautiful grade 1 listed Royal Overseas League members club. Originally founded in 1910 by Sir Evelyn Wrench to bring people together from across the Commonwealth, today the club is a bustling hive of activity and offers members numerous benefits including bedrooms, bars and work spaces.

We’ve never had any negative feedback from clients we’ve booked at the venue, and it’s easy to see why. There are numerous event spaces available to hire that come well equipped and at fantastic rates, especially considering the venues prestigious location.

The Hall of India & Pakistan is the largest space on offer and features wood panelled walls gifted to the venue by the Government of India in 1937. Capable of handling conferences for conferences of 250 or banquets for 200 the room can also be partitioned into two spaces if needed. Directly beneath is the Alexandra Hall, a room suitable for conferences for 200 delegates or dinners for 130. The Hall comes with built in AV facilities and immersive blue lighting.

Elsewhere in the venue there are four small-mid sized event spaces. Three of these rooms (Wrench, Bennett-Clark & Rutland) are all well suited to hosting private dinners thanks to their beautiful period features and uninterrupted views across Green Park, which the venue backs directly onto.

Given the company the venue keeps, it’s next door neighbours are The Ritz Hotel and The Stafford Hotel , the prices are remarkably low, and not just low for Mayfair but low for London to. These prices aren’t due to a lesser level of service so if you’re looking to impress on a budget we can think of few better places to do so.
