We love stories. Stories make our hearts skip a beat. They make our minds leap and our souls wander. This is why I adore writing; it’s also why Clare, Meetingrooms.com’s Business Development Manager, loves finding new venues.

Each new venue has a story behind it.

We’re both privileged to live in London. A city which is insanely rich in culture and history. Every corner, every building has a different story to tell…

When I think of London, I also think of its private clubs. I’m intrigued by their untold stories.

Many clubs have been around since the 18th century. They welcomed poets, musicians, and scientists from a whole different era.  Imagine the possibilities; the riveting conversations. The creative exchanges, and the collaborations that have changed lives. These walls were standing in the heart of the city long before I was: What have they witnessed? Oh, to be a fly on the wall…

And I wouldn’t mind being transported in time to walk through the Georgian architecture. Or even visit the cake shops that were so popular in the Abchurch Lane.

Fortunately, places like The Hurlingham Club & the London Capital Club are still loyal to their roots with their one of a kind atmospheres reflecting old London.

No time machine needed. Better yet, we don’t even have to be members to enjoy their settings.

What stories and places capture your imagination? I personally have an endless list!
