Navy Board Rooms

These four connected rooms were originally home to the Navy Board, overseeing British naval affairs as the country set about building an empire. Accessible via the breathtaking Nelson Stair, the 18th-century Navy Board Rooms are now a hugely popular venue for receptions, dinners, press days and many other events.

The layout offers great flexibility - you can focus your booking on one particular room or use all four spaces for different purposes. For larger events, you can combine the Navy Board Rooms with the adjoining Portico Rooms – contact us for more information.
