Beautiful Rooms - The Alex Fitch Room, Harrow School

Thursday, April 22, 2021 - 10:30

The Alex Fitch Room is one of the most majestic venues at Harrow School. Located in the War Memorial Building, the entire contents of the room are older than the building itself.

The venue includes a large solid dining table placed in the centre of the room. This seats up to 20 guests along with grand wooden chairs.

Alex had been a pupil at Harrow School and was one of 644 Old Harrovians killed in the Great War.

The memorial to him was completed in 1926. The walls are made up of Elizabethan panels and the floor is made up of teak timbers from a George III warship called the St Vincent. The interior is from the reign of King Henry V and the carving around the outside dates from the reign of King Henry VII.

Above the fireplace is a portrait of Fitch in uniform. His head rests on his right hand and he is holding a cigarette in his left. Over the portrait burns a light permanently in his honour, what magical surroundings for your special event.
