Sanctuary office

Wednesday 15 April 2015

5–8 The Sanctuary is a Grade II listed Gothic style building and was built in 1854 by prominent Victorian architect, Sir George Gilbert Scott.

It is situated adjacent to the main entrance of Westminster Abbey, close to the junction of Victoria Street with Parliament Square.  Its location makes the ideal base from which to continue our lobbying of the Government to ensure that we represent all our members’ interests from all the membership associations at the highest level. 


We are located on the fourth floor of the recently refurbished, air conditioned office suites.  There is a manned reception area, a lift to all floors and plenty of impressive period features throughout the building.  But the best news is that we continue to offer meeting facilities to our members free of charge.  These must be booked check the members' area for details.

The Sanctuary boasts a shower for morning gym users, cyclists or those getting ready to go out for a meal after a hard day’s work.  The communal gardens also make a great place to sit and enjoy a coffee in the morning sun.

St James’s Park and Westminster tube stations are both within easy walking distance and numerous bus routes can be found directly outside the property.  The historic Deans Yard is just behind the property, giving superb views from the rear of the premises across this impressive square.

There are two meeting rooms that can be booked – one that accommodates eight people around a standard meeting table and another for up to twelve people, which can be used for training sessions and meetings.  This space boasts a plasma TV screen, which can be used for presentations. 

We will be running selected courses from our extensive training programme from the Sanctuary throughout the year.
