HISTORY OF REFORM CLUB















The Reform Club was founded in 1836, in Pall Mall, in the centre of what is often called London’s Clubland.  The founders commissioned a leading architect of the day, Charles Barry, to build an imposing and palatial clubhouse.  It is as splendid today as when it opened in 1841.  Membership was restricted to those who pledged support for the Great Reform Act of 1832, and the many MPs and Whig peers among the early members developed the Club as the political headquarters of the Liberal Party.

The current membership embraces a wide range of professions; there are academics, artists, business people, doctors, lawyers, politicians, writers and so on.  J. M. Barrie, Henri Cartier Bresson, Winston Churchill, E. M. Forster, Henry James, Lord Palmerston, William Makepeace Thackeray, and H. G. Wells were all members, and the Club continues to attract members of distinction.

The Club will forever be associated with Jules Verne's Around the World in Eighty Days, as the place where the idea of this incredible journey was conceived and the famous bet made.

HONOURABLE SOCIETY OF GRAY'S INN











The Honourable Society of Gray's Inn, commonly known as Gray's Inn, is one of the four Inns of Court (professional associations for barristers and judges) in London. To be called to the bar in order to practise as a barrister in England and Wales, an individual must belong to one of these inns.  It is ruled by a governing council called "Pension", made up of the Masters of the Bench (or "benchers") and led by the Treasurer, who is elected to serve a one-year term. The Inn is known for its gardens (the "Walks"), which have existed since at least 1597.

Gray's Inn does not claim a specific foundation date; none of the Inns of Court claims to be any older than the others. Law clerks and their apprentices have been established on the present site since at latest 1370, with records dating from 1381. During the 15th and 16th centuries, the Inn grew in size, peaking during the reign of Elizabeth I.  William Shakespeare's The Comedy of Errors is believed first to have been performed in Gray's Inn Hall.

HISTORY OF THE CLUB


The Club was founded in 1832, following the massive reform majority in the 1831 general election, by Tory Peers, MPs and others, in order to improve the organisation and effectiveness of the Party.
On 10 March 1832, a meeting at the Thatched House tavern appointed a committee to take on and manage new premises in Carlton Terrace. The name ‘Carlton Club’ was adopted a week later.
By 1835 the club’s wealth and standing were such that it moved to specially designed premises on Pall Mall. Membership was a badge of allegiance to the Conservative Party and the Club provided the core of the party’s organisation for many decades, particularly before the foundation of Conservative Central Office.

The present address of 69 St James’s Street only became a clubhouse after the Pall Mall building was destroyed during the Second World War. Thankfully, many of the club’s most valuable portraits survived and now adorn the clubhouse walls.

The architect Thomas Hopper (1776-1856) designed the clubhouse in a restrained Palladian style, using Portland Stone. Like so many Regency buildings, the interior is dominated by an impressive stone staircase. Hopper used Greek sources for inspiration for the decoration.
Over the years, the clubhouse has been lovingly restored and maintained in a way that is deeply respectful of its heritage.

HISTORY OF THE ROYAL AUTOMOBILE CLUB

Established by Frederick Simms in 1897 as the Automobile Club of Great Britain and Ireland, the Club is the oldest motoring institution in the United Kingdom and the second oldest in the world.

In 1907 the Club received a Royal Charter from King Edward VII. Simms was a manufacturer, inventor and enthusiastic driver, we therefore house collections that encompass meeting minutes, journals, engineering drawings, architectural plans and a variety of manuscripts from the formation of the Club to the present day.

The Pall Mall clubhouse opened to members in March 1911. Designed by Messrs Mewes and Davies, who also designed the Ritz Hotel, it had innovative features such as an air filtration system to cope with the London soot from coal, electric lighting and a Post Office.

The Pall Mall Clubhouse houses an impressive selection of trophies, many of which are still awarded, including the British Grand Prix Trophy, the Dewar and Segrave Trophies.

The Clubhouse also contains a Library with approximately 5,000 publications covering every aspect of motoring. Other collections include paintings, trophies and ephemera.
