Library and Members' Hub

Our new Library and Members’ Hub offers members dedicated areas for collaborative working, meetings and private study in a unique historic setting at the heart of Westminster.

The west wing features increased deskspace, with free wireless printing, numerous charging points and four fixed-terminal PCs. On the east side, circular desks for collaborative work are available, with two large sofas offering semi-enclosed meeting space and free self-service tea, coffee and biscuits. A variety of seating options are available and phone calls and food are now permitted, so it is a far more practical area for members to meet and to work.

The front section of the space offers comfortable, casual seating and an open space to enjoy the architecture, enviable views over St James’ Park and prestige objects from the Institution’s Archive and Artefact collections. 

The space continues to house a dedicated enquiry team for research and offers access to resources in print and online.

Facilities include:

  • Free WiFi
  • Comfortable seating areas
  • Dedicated desks for work and study
  • Collaborative space for ad-hoc meetings
  • Wireless printing facilities
  • Complimentary self-service tea and coffee.

Non-members are admitted by appointment only, unless accompanied by an existing member.
