Who can become a member

Membership of the National Liberal Club is open to people of all ages, ethnicities and backgrounds. We pride ourselves on our Liberal history and believe in an inclusive, diverse family where all are welcomed and valued. We have political and non-political memberships, so you don’t need to be a member of any political party. All we ask of our members is that they don’t use the Club premises for any activities that are harmful to the cause of Liberalism. Political Members and non-political Members are exactly alike, except that Political Members have extra voting rights at AGMs, in exchange for declaring that they are Liberal in their politics.

Why you should become a member

Becoming a member not only includes you in the ranks of famous members old and new such as Winston Churchill, William Gladstone and Mary Robinson, but it also offers the opportunity to take advantage of our unrivalled facilities right in the heart of London. Boasting some of the Capital’s finest Victorian architecture, whether it’s London’s largest private terrace overlooking the Thames, the grand collection of high-ceilinged club rooms, or the opulence of Europe’s largest unsupported marble staircase. The Club has a vibrant and active social calendar with a host of annual events. There are also plenty of Clubs and Groups to join, where like-minded members meet to share their special interests.
