You can book a room of our wonderful house for any event that you may be planning – or even the entire house. You can draw on the fabulous catering services of The Brunswick House Restaurant. Our interiors, courtyards and roof terraces are still groaning with fabulous architectural salvage, all for sale – ever changing – so the backdrop will be unique to your event.
Brunswick House has a tumultuous history since its dated foundation stone was laid in 1759 – you can still see the stone in the cellar. Originally called Belmont House, the stately brick mansion was soon divided in two internally; the Duke of Brunswick occupying it for a time. It oversaw the rise and demise of the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens opposite. The river originally lapped against a jetty at the end of its back garden but it receded as the Thames was incrementally embanked. It witnessed the arrival of the railways as viaducts rudely blocked its view towards The Oval. The brutalist Nine Elms Cold Store looked over its shoulder for a few decades by which time Railwaymen had the building as their grand member’s club complete with Theatre and Snooker Halls. And then came the squatters – they liked to party.
Now, Vauxhall is being transformed again as huge towers spring up around us. Brunswick House finds itself at the hub of the new “Embassy Quarter”.
In occupation since 2005, LASSCO has used its love of old buildings, and our unique sources, to sensitively bring Brunswick House back to life. Contact Jo Auger if you have an event you would like to stage in our fabulous house.
