The Reform Club

The Reform Club is one of the most prestigious private members’ clubs in London with a long and intriguing history. Over the years the Club has evolved from its radical beginnings and is now a prominent social club, no longer associated with any particular political party. In 1981 the Reform was the first of the traditional gentleman’s clubs to allow women to become members on equal terms. The Reform Club is proud of its liberal-minded and progressive character, a fact that contributes to its enduring vitality.

History & Architecture

The Club was founded in the ferment of ideas, ideals and political activity which, in part, found expression in the Great Reform Act of 1832. Having succeeded, after a great parliamentary battle, in securing the passing of the Reform Bill, Radicals and Whigs needed a centre for their political activities.
