The Terrace Dining Rooms are a suite of various sized event venues at the House of Commons, perfect for breakfasts, lunches, afternoon teas or dinners.
Originally part of the Journal Office where daily Votes and Proceedings were compiled, the Terrace dining rooms were created in the early 1900’s as private dining spaces for Members of Parliament, and are still popular today when the House is in session.
A recurring decorative feature throughout the building is the Portcullis emblem, a symbol of Parliament, strength and security. This is incorporated into the design of our individually hand crafted chairs, which are found in all of our event spaces.
These well-appointed rooms are decorated with antique wood panelling, and can suit a range of capacities. Ideal for executive boardroom meetings or private dinners, these versatile spaces are also perfect for intimate events.
