10-11 Carlton House Terrace

News Story

{10-11} Carlton House Terrace, home to The British Academy, is a spectacular Grade I listed Georgian Townhouse located in the heart of Westminster.

One of London's finest Georgian treasures, the Terrace was designed by John Nash and constructed from 1827 to 1833 in The Roman Classical style. 11 Carlton House Terrace was once the residence of Prime Minister William Gladstone, as soon as the house was completed it rapidly became one of the most fashionable addresses in London. The Gladstone’s held a regular Thursday salon where many of the country’s most prominent people met to exchange news, gossip and listen to live music. The architectural historian Sir Nikolaus Pevsner, himself a Fellow of the Academy, described the Terrace as among ‘the greatest terrace houses ever built in Britain’.

Although the terrace was badly damaged during World War II, much of the interior of Number 10 has survived from the early years of the 20th Century, when in 1905 the 2nd Viscount Ridley remodelled a significant portion of the house in the French classical style. This included the installation of a black marble staircase with a bronze balustrade.

Today {10-11} Carlton House Terrace retains all of its original grandeur, with 10 unique rooms available, each with their own character, charm and original features.

The Wolfson Room and Radhakrishnan Room provide spectacular views over the St James’s Park, The Mall, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey and the London Eye. The Webb Room includes a beautiful Trompe L’oeil painted ceiling, whilst The Library has the warm, intimate feel of a London club room.
