About this space

Every room inside Mary Ward House brings its own creative touches, but the Brewer & Smith Room is perhaps the most unique. Delivering an exceptional level of natural light and spectacularly high ceilings, it’s nestled within the lower ground floor of the building, creating a singularly quirky conference venue in London.

Hardwood parquet floor lends the room a prestige air that harkens back to the building’s 19th century roots, but it is undoubtedly the ceiling that will enduringly capture your attention. Though on the lower ground roof, the ceiling of the Brewer & Smith Room arches gracefully across the width of the room. Windows set along the centre allow sunlight to pour in from above, with dramatic metal rafters complementing the pure white of the room’s walls.

Mary Ward House is a fascinating Grade 1 listed building built in 1898 and financed by the wealthy philanthropist Passmore Edwards. Mary Ward, the novelist and social reformer, was the inspiration behind the endeavour to provide a centre of training, care and entertainment for the less fortunate in society.

Each finely proportioned room has its own unique character and ambience, from the distinctive Dickens Library to the extensive Mary Ward Hall. All of our rooms have natural daylight. There is also a large outdoor courtyard and garden which provides a tranquil haven in Central London.
