An invitation to New Humanist readers
Looking for somewhere in central London to relax, meet people, read, work, eat,
drink or be entertained? Not all clubs are stuffy, smug or sexist. The National Liberal Club occupies a magnificent building in Westminster overlooking the Thames and the London Eye. Its interior has the grandeur and comfort of a stately home, while its terrace is one of London’s most enviable places to eat and drink outdoors.
Since George Bernard Shaw presented The Case for Equality at a dinner in 1913,
the Club has welcomed a variety of stimulating speakers. It was one of the first
London clubs to open its membership to women, and its tradition is one of tolerance and open-mindedness.
For a more modest annual subscription than many of its competitors, the National Liberal Club offers superb dining, a reading room, business room with free internet access, function and billiards rooms, plus reciprocal membership rights to more than 100 clubs round the world. There are social and sporting circles, political, economic and arts functions, musical evenings, a summer barbecue and numerous other special events.
“An oasis of tranquillity” Charles Kennedy MP
