Overview

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.

How to get there

LASSCO Brunswick House is in Central London next to Vauxhall Bridge – close to Westminster, the West End and routes to the South West.

By Cab

We’re on the corner of Wandsworth Road and Nine Elms Lane, opposite the Vauxhall Bus Depot. All “Black Cabs” should know us, get them to drop you in a safe spot – it is a busy junction

By Road

Head for Vauxhall Bridge. The best approach is from Nine Elms Lane (i.e. come via Battersea Dogs Home to the south of Chelsea Bridge) as you can pull into our yard on the left and park just as you approach the Vauxhall Cross Gyratory. Otherwise, from the Vauxhall Cross Gyratory, follow signs for Battersea which will send you down Nine Elms Lane, leaving LASSCO Brunswick House on your right. Take the first opportunity to “U-turn” 200m along Nine Elms Lane – back through the lights, then use our yard to park.

By Tube

LASSCO Brunswick House is a two-minute walk from Vauxhall Tube Station. Vauxhall is just minutes from all central London tube stops on the Victoria Line. It is in Zone 1. On arrival, follow signs to Exit 6. LASSCO Brunswick House is straight on from the exit on your right.
