Beautiful Rooms - Argyll Room & Terrace, No.4 Hamilton Place

Thursday, July 9, 2020 - 17:30

A stunning Edwardian townhouse in Mayfair, No.4 Hamilton Place, has a number of beautiful rooms including our Argyll Room & Terrace on the first floor.

The room itself is classic in style with intricate features throughout including two grand fireplaces and ornate gold detailing on the ceiling.

The fantastic roof terrace overlooking Hyde Park makes it one of the most unique spaces in London.

The architect, Thomas Leverton (who also planned some of Bedford Square) was mentioned as a surveyor to the original Hamilton Place scheme and he designed No.4 Hamilton Place in 1807 for his client, The 2nd Earl of Lucan, who took up the lease in 1810.

A later resident was Lord Arthur Wellesley, better known as The Duke of Wellington, who rented the property in 1814 whilst waiting for his new home, Apsley House, to be completed.    

Until the end of the 19th century, the house was occupied by a succession of bankers, then from 1903 until 1938 Mr Leopold Albu, a successful entrepreneur bought the house and lived there with his family.

It now is an elegant setting for a variety of events including weddings, dinners and receptions, the Argyll Room is always a popular choice and makes for a truly memorable event. The terrace is ideal for sunny summer BBQs as well as cosy Christmas drinks during the festive season in our heated marquee, ensuring that our guests can still make the most of this unusual space.

Once used to film Downton Abbey, the Argyll Room & Terrace is a perfect way to bring old world grandeur and elegance to your next event – contact the venue hire team on  to discuss in further detail and see what this fabulous venue has to offer.
