Welcome to The Travellers Club
Throughout the Club's existence distinguished members of the Diplomatic Service, the Home Civil Service and the Armed Forces have formed the backbone of the Travellers Club and the Club has many ambassadors and high commissioners in London among its members.
The Travellers Club was founded in 1819 by a cohort led by Lord Castlereagh, and in 1832 moved to its present purpose-built clubhouse that was designed by Charles Barry. The Club's founding ethos was to establish a meeting place for like-minded gentlemen who had travelled abroad, and in which they could also entertain their foreign visitors and diplomats posted to London.
The Club maintains reciprocal arrangements with some 140 prestigious clubs throughout the world.
