VISIT TO THE CALEDONIAN CLUB
Tuesday 23 January 2018

Cost: £7   Maximum No: 25  

The Caledonian Club was founded in 1891 and is a little bit of Scotland in the heart of London.  The Club as it is today was formed in 1917 under the energetic leadership of the Marquis Tullibardine to make it the national representative Club and headquarters for Scots in London.

The Club’s Charity, the Common Good Fund, was formed in 2001 with the objective being to “preserve and enhance for the benefit of the public the Caledonian Club building at 9 Halkin Street and to encourage reasonable public access to view its historic and architectural features, art collection, furniture and artefacts”. 

We shall learn more about the history of the Club during our tour.

Meet immediately past the ticket barrier of Hyde Park Corner underground station on the Piccadilly Line no later than 10.45am for a short walk to the Club ready for an 11am start.

Important note.  As with most Clubs the Caledonian Club has a dress code and gentleman are required to wear suits, or jackets, with ties.  Ladies should be similarly smartly dressed and definitely no jeans or trainers.
