Our venue

The Dining Room, First Floor, Civil Service Club, 13-15 Gt Scotland Yard, London SW1A 2HJ

We are most grateful to all members who suggested possible venues for our meetings, following the announcement that we could no longer use Waterstone's in Piccadilly. The Civil Service Club has been investigated and found to be suitable for our needs, with many advantages and good transport links. Gt Scotland Yard, off Whitehall, is easily reached from Trafalgar Square, Charing Cross main line or underground (Northern and Bakerloo lines) and Embankment (District, Northern and District lines), and not all that far from Leicester Square underground, for those of us wedded to the Piccadilly line. You can check the venue on the map by clicking here. The room we shall be using is the Dining Room on the first floor (there is a lift). There are toilets on the ground and second floors. We are welcome to use the bar on the ground floor which is open until 11pm.

Please note: although this will be our main venue in the foreseeable future we may also use other premises, so it is important to take note of what is printed in the newsletter.
