About this space

The Benjamin Franklin Room is a spacious and elegant ground floor room ideal for drinks receptions, dinners, conferences and wedding ceremonies. The large window floods the room with daylight and provides a stunning view of the Strand. The dramatic Troika chandelier reflects geometric patterns on to the ceiling and the room also hosts two original Adam fireplaces.

The Benjamin Franklin Room has previously been used as a "model room" displaying award winning inventions providing our guests with that historical foundation, but with a modern and contemporary twist.
