Elegant, airy and totally adapted to the purpose. On the occasion, ate the best scones with whipped cream (and I had High tea at Claridge's in London).show original

Wonderful experience, the rooms above look beautiful and would make for spectacular events. The Fashion Museum below is well designed, and offers a wonderful glimpse into fashion throughout the last few hundred years. Tickets come with free audio guides that give you more information than displayed on the written placards.

Three rooms with an array of beautiful chandeliers in each, amidst a huge sprawling space and decor that gives an indication of the opulence of the time.
I have been here several times to visit, each time the ball room is closed because of an event. I visited last week I spoke to Jessica on the desk, her attitude was curt bordering rude. Considering she is the person who tourist speak to when entering the assembly rooms I would suggest either more training with her people skills or giving her a job away from the public. I will not bother trying to visit again and I have advised others not to either. SHAME!
We found this fascinating, from the beautiful historical building with the sparkling chandeliers to the little cafe within and the main attraction, rooms of clothing and accessories along with their stories spanning the centuries and painting a picture of historical life in Britain up to the modern day. There's a dress up area for a few fun photographs and colouring in for kids. Adults interested in history, fashion and its importance in society will really appreciate a visit here.
Amazing venue! Well worth a visit.
