The Members’ Dining Room is the largest and most versatile event venue in the House of Commons.
This impressive room is adorned with beautiful flock wallpaper, wooden relief sculptures and fascinating paintings. The ornate Royal coat of Arms sits proudly above the main entrance signifying the connection of the Monarchy to Parliament.
Once intended as a conference room known as the ‘Painted Chamber’, the Members’ Dining Room now provides the perfect space for corporate presentations, dinners and wedding ceremonies; a splendid room with exquisite detailing that is sure to impress your guests.
