Stephenson Room

About

On the ground floor to the rear of the main foyer in this spectacular Westminster event venue is the Stephenson room – one of our smaller yet traditional-style function rooms.

The event space, although slightly smaller than some, has high ceilings and large windows along the west wall allowing in lots of natural daylight.

The walls are partially covered with rich, dark-oak panelling and the ceilings are adorned with beautifully-embellished plaster and lit by a large chandelier. There is a grand fireplace on the South wall framed by a splendid dark wood mantel piece, above which hangs the portrait of Isambard Kingdom Brunel one of the Institution’s most noted past presidents.

There is a solid wooden table along the middle of the room ideal to seat up to 26 people for a board meeting or an intimate private dining event. It is also ideal for a small presentation for up to 30 people theatre style, or a standing reception. The Stephenson room interconnects with the Council room which can serve as additional and separate event space.

The room is named after Robert Stephenson who was the President of the Institution of Civil Engineers in 1855. He also designed the Britannia Bridge linking Wales with Anglesey and was renowned for his work with locomotive steam trains. His portrait, along with other pictures commemorating his works, are hung around this elegant room.
