The Webb Rooms soaring ceilings, ornate guilt carvings and painted ceiling will wow your guests from the outset. Located on the first floor of the venue, guests make their way to the Webb Room room via a beautiful black marble staircase.
Large windows allow for plenty of natural light, and views down the Mall. This bright elegant space is ideally suited for entertaining, receptions, exhibitions. It can be hired stand alone or in conjunction with the neighbouring Radhakrishnan or Council Rooms.
Visitors will be enthralled by your speakers, sitting under the Trompe L’oeil painted ceiling, commissioned by the Ridley family in the style of Eugene Delacroix, the leader of the French Romantic school. This unique painting remains unfinished due to the outbreak of war, during which the room was turned into a ward for wounded officers. During this transformative period, the nurses would push the beds to the open windows and people would cheer the heroes from the Duke of York steps outside.
So named the Webb Room after Beatrice Webb FBA. A sociologist, economist and social reformer, she was one of the four founders of the London School of Economics and was the first woman elected as fellow to The British academy in 1931.
