Our pre-dinner reception will be in the Cholmondeley Room. The wallpaper was designed by Augustus Welby Pugin who collaborated with Charles Barry to produce Gothic Revival designs throughout the Palace of Westminster. The letter ‘R’ and the chained White Hart or deer were the symbols of King Richard II who commissioned the great hammer-beam roof in Westminster Hall.
The capacity of the venue is limited to 120 so make sure you book early.
