The Members Dining Room is the largest and most versatile space in the House of Commons. This impressive room is adorned with beautiful flock wallpaper, wooden relief sculptures and fascinating paintings. The ornate Royal coat of arms sits proudly above the main entrance signifying the connection of the Monarchy to Parliament. This symbolism is also apparent in the first know painting of Parliament, ‘The House of Commons in session,’ by Peter Tillemans c. 1709, where the arms of Queen Anne are shown above the Speaker’s chair.

Once intended as a conference room known as the ‘Painted Chamber’ the Members Dining Room now provides the perfect space for corporate presentations, dinners and receptions; a splendid room with exquisite detailing that is sure to impress your guests.

 Over the centuries the Palace has evolved to become the historical heart of the country and home to the United Kingdoms Parliament. Designed by the eminent architect Charles Barry (1795-1860) in the mid 19th Century, the Palace of Westminster is an example of some of the finest arts and craftmanship.
