Reform Club ~ Information for Visitors
Tours of the Clubhouse
The Reform Club encourages reasonable access to the public to view its historic and architectural features, art collection, furniture and artefacts.
Tours of the clubhouse are offered to groups of between ten and twenty people on weekday mornings by prior arrangement. Those taking part in these tours are invited to contribute £7.50 per person to the Reform Club Conservation Charitable Trust. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a tour.
The Reform Club also participates in Open House London, which takes place annually in September when hundreds of London buildings open their doors to the public.
There are nine stone steps from the pavement into the clubhouse and a further eight steps into the main Saloon, so access is awkward for those who are physically disabled or unable to walk. The Club does, however, have a wheelchair stair climber and many willing hands for those that may require assistance.
Grade I listing limits the scope of alterations but there are plans to make access easier in the coming years.
