A place of exploration and adventure, the Society of Exploration boasts wood-panelled walls, warm leather seating and shelves laden with eccentric artefacts. Guests can enjoy intimate gatherings in the Map Room, housing an impressive collection of antique maps, travel books, souvenirs and more. Alongside the bar lies the life-size model of a Victorian train carriage, perfect for seated and standing events and complete with banquette seating, brass lamps and windows overlooking the bar area.
