Originally built as the home of the National Liberal Club, The Gladstone Library is named after the founder, William Gladstone. Though the 30,000 volumes that line the shelves today are faithful replicas, the room is otherwise just as he would have known it, including the gantry giving access to the upper levels, which now serves as a minstrel’s gallery.
Adjoining the Library is the ornate Reading & Writing Room that features marble pillars and views out to the River Thames. The combination of the two areas provides a perfect setting for reception drinks, dinner and dancing or for one large space for a stand-up event. With the added feature of decorative lighting, there are few more festive settings in London.
