Navy Board Rooms

Navy Board Rooms

Steeped in history and dating back to the 18th century, the Navy Board Rooms are an impressive suite of rooms with a distinctive sense of charm and heritage.

Climbing the grand, sweeping Nelson Staircase is an experience in itself, as each flight is a one-off architectural work of art. Entering the main space, marble fireplaces and wooden floors create a grand atmosphere, with large sash windows offering panoramic views across the River Thames.

Originally home to the Navy Board, overseeing British naval affairs around the globe, the Navy Board Rooms are now a hugely popular venue for meetings, conferences, receptions, intimate dinners and press days.

The interconnecting rooms offer wonderful natural light, original features and great flexibility. You can focus your booking on one room or use all three spaces for different purposes. For larger events, you can combine the rooms with the adjoining Portico Rooms.
