This large versatile dining room featuring panoramic garden views is ideal for conferences, seminars, luncheons, award dinners and stand-up cocktail reception events. The Fountain Court area leading into the Strangers’ Foyer can be booked in-conjunction with the room for pre-dinner reception drinks.

The Strangers’ Room is a meeting place where members of Parliament greet visiting dignitaries including consuls’ generals and members of the Royal family. Historically, these guests were referred to as ’strangers’, thus creating the saying ‘where strangers become friends’.

Today, Parliament House invite you and guests to continue this tradition.

“There are no strangers here; Only friends you haven’t met”. William Butler Yeat – Poet
