Bazalgette Room

About the Bazalgette Room

The only meeting space on the second floor and therefore offering more privacy is the Bazalgette room. The room is traditionally fitted out with dark wood railing, a large ornate fire place and mantel piece. The arched ceiling has a room-long skylight which creates space and light. There is a good amount of classic lighting on the ceiling and around the room. The approach to the room is most impressive and passes the magnificent Rotunda providing stunning views down to the ground floor.

A dark-wood table fits the length of the room and can accommodate for up to 26 people for an executive board meeting or presentation, a working lunch can be served comfortably within the room.

The name of the room was given to commemorate Sir Joseph Bazalgette who was President of the Institution of Civil Engineers from 1883-84. Moreover he is remembered as the man who designed and built London’s great sewer system and thus saving many Londoners. In creating this system he also created the large expanse of Embankments along the Thames, part of which are just a short walk from the venue and are enjoyed and used to this day.
