Reform Club ~ Information for Visitors

Tours of the Clubhouse

The Reform Club allows reasonable access to the public to view its historic and architectural features, art collection, furniture and artefacts.

The Club does not hold tours for the general public, but by prior arrangement organised groups are welcome on weekday mornings. The minimum number of visitors per group is ten. Those taking part in these tours are invited to contribute £15.00 per person to the Reform Club Conservation Charitable Trust. Visitors are required to adhere to the dress code detailed below.  Please contact Paul Austin to arrange a tour.

The Reform Club also participates in Open House London, which takes place annually in September when hundreds of London buildings open their doors to the public.

Access for Disabled People

There are nine stone steps from the pavement into the Clubhouse and a further eight steps into the main Saloon, so access is awkward for people who are physically disabled or unable to walk.  The Club does, however, have a wheelchair stair climber and many willing hands for those that may require assistance.

Grade I listing limits the scope of alterations but there are plans to make access easier in the coming years.
