Pugin Room


The Pugin Room is the perfect venue for events at the House of Commons with a more intimate focus

The Pugin Room was renamed in 1978, dedicated to the memory of Augustus Welby Pugin, who directed the interior designs of the Palace of Westminster. This relaxing space provides an idyllic setting with wonderful views of the Thames.
The large gilt brass and crystal chandelier which commands the room is a piece that was initially commissioned for the 16th Earl of Shrewsbury by Pugin, and was once hung in the Great Dining Room at Alton Towers, Staffordshire.

To further commemorate the work of the designers, the shields above the door were painted with the coats of arms of Pugin, Barry, another architect Giles Gilbert Scott, Speaker Thomas and Sir Robert Cooke.
