Tea on the Terrace

Tea On The Terrace

House of Commons
Thursday 7 June 2018

Thanks to the kind permission of The Lord Colin Moynihan of Leeds, Leander members and their guests may enjoy afternoon tea on the terrace of the House of Commons on Thursday 7 June from 4 pm until 6 pm. The cost of afternoon tea and a glass of fizz is £50 a head.

After tea we shall process over Westminster Bridge to the Fountain Garden at St Thomas’ Hospital, where we shall unveil a memorial slab, privately funded by a group of Leander members, to mark the site of Searle’s boathouse, where Leander Club was founded in 1818.


Access will be permitted from 4 pm via the Cromwell Green entrance off Parliament Square, directly opposite the back of St. Margaret’s Church. You will need to bring your invitation and you may also be asked to show proof of identity. Airport style searches are in place and there are no facilities for storing or leaving bags or other personal items so please travel as light as possible. The entry process will take a couple of minutes per person but allow ten minutes from arrival to reach the Terrace via the Central Lobby. Interior photographs may only be taken in Westminster Hall as well as the Terrace itself.

Applications must be made on the attached form or online via the link below. Bookings will be accepted up to the day of the event, if space allows.

Successful applicants will be sent formal invitation cards which must be presented at the point of entry.

These invitations are not transferable.
