For 1500 years Hurlingham field has been a site of natural tranquillity and respite. Since the first Anglo-Saxon settlers first founded a farm there after sailing up the Thames (possibly giving the field its name - “Hurla’s Ham”) Hurlingham has welcomed its visitors with lush grass, the leafy shade of regal oaks and the gentle lapping of the river.
Today The Hurlingham Club continues this legacy, the grand architecture and pristine gardens playing host to those looking to escape the hustle and bustle of city life. The Club’s calendar is filled with luxurious social occasions from summer fêtes to dinners and 'Carols by Candlelight' in the winter. Alongside the Hurlingham’s function as a private club, they also have a number of majestic venue spaces available for hire.
The grounds of the Hurlingham Club have long been the site of summer games and frolics. From games of croquet and lawn tennis to hosting the London gun club in the 19th century. Today the quintessential English setting of their grounds has become a hidden gem in the west of London. Sitting close to Putney Bridge, south of Fulham Broadway, the Hurlingham Club offers several different summer packages to include sumptuous BBQ and free-flowing drinks. The gardens are incredibly flexible when it comes to hosting events so whether you’re hosting intimate drinks or a 1000 guest reception.
Offering a modern intersection between the delightful gardens and the stately main building is the Palm Court and Orangery.
