Enquire Now

116 Pall Mall is a City Of Westminster Wedding Venue and one of London’s great Georgian landmarks. A Grade I listed jewel designed by the great John Nash, the architect responsible for Marble Arch, not to mention that Ian Fleming creator of James Bond 007 would often pop by for a pink gin!

You’re looking for a historic, quirky, City Of Westminster Wedding Venue and you’ve found a blinder!

Today 116 Pall Mall it is the home of the Institute of Directors. Up until the late 1970s it was the United Services Club, the London club for senior officers of the Army and Navy.

The Duke of Wellington, victor of Waterloo, was a regular in his later years and during the Second World War, Lieutenant Commander Ian Fleming would often drop into the club for a pink gin after a trying day of cracking codes. Fleming was, of course, the author who created James Bond.

This City Of Westminster Wedding Venue was built on the site of Carlton House, the London residence of the Prince of Wales prior to his move to Buckingham Palace. The dramatic marble mosaic floor on the ground floor was laid down in 1858. You’ll  be blown away by the stunning 15-foot, original hand-made Regency chandelier that hangs above the main staircase. It was presented as a gift to the United Services Club by George IV to commemorate the Battle of Waterloo.

The walls in the Waterloo Room are papered in gold leaf on linen, a treatment so expensive that the wallpaper is insured in its own right. Whats more, the inner hall houses one of the buildings most valuable features, the marble bust of Nelson. This beauty is said to be the only bust of him created from life and stands on a plinth made from part of HMS Victory.

Over the years, 116 Pall Mall has been used as a location for many films and TV programmes. The Nash room was Viceroy’s office in Gandhi, the Waterloo was used as a backdrop for Foyle’s War and the brasserie was used in the Batman film – The Dark Knight.

So your search for a City Of Westminster Wedding Venue might well end here with this unique and impressive venue!

It’s  both flexible and versatile, featuring a columned entrance, eight magnificent and individually designed function rooms with capacities of up to 400 people and a grand ornate staircase. Not to mention the adjoining gardens in the heart of St James.

Say What?

Having just about resurfaced from the whole wedding whirl, we wanted to say how thrilled and impressed we were with the way Charlotte and Tom’s wedding reception was handled by your team. The building looked immaculate and having such a wonderful space completely at our disposal worked perfectly.
We have had many compliments about the magnificent setting and it was great to be able to welcome our guests on the stunning staircase. The Nash Room looked beautiful and we loved being able to party on in there without having to relocate for the dancing.

However just as importantly, the staff were (without exception) helpful, courteous and efficient and we all felt extremely well looked after. The food was absolutely delicious and served beautifully – again our guests have raved about the meal – so please pass on our thanks and appreciation to Roger and his talented team.
The whole day just flowed wonderfully and a very happy occasion was only enhanced by taking place at 116 Pall Mall. Thanks from us all and finally, being able to put up the personalised flag really was the icing on the (wedding) cake!Charlotte & Tom
