Ambassadors’ Dinner & Auction

The Old War Office, Whitehall, London

7 November 2024

Raffles London
Unique Venue
Unparalleled History

Winston Churchill, the former Secretary of State for War between 1919 and 1921 and the wartime Prime Minister during WW2, was a frequent visitor.

The nature of the work was invariably vital to National security and what went on in The War Office stayed behind closed doors for nearly 120 years. It is only now that the building is open to the public for the first time.

Novelist Ian Fleming, a Naval Intelligence Officer with the Secret Intelligence Service created the famous fictional British Secret Agent, James Bond, code named 007, inspired by working in The War Office. The legendary Spy Bar, Morse and Code rooms and the former historic library are a unique legacy of the secret rendezvous, espionage, and intrigue that took place in the building’s corridors of power
