The 3 Robert Street Conference Centre, 3 Robert Street London WC2N 6RL
Situated in the heart of London, yet on a quiet street, this elegant Grade II listed building is perfect for training courses, indeed you will be situated at the prestigious headquarters of one the oldest accountancy bodies, The Chartered Institute of Public Finance & Accountancy.
No.3 Robert Street is a Grade II listed building. Along with Nos 1 & 2 it forms one of the remaining parts of the original Adelphi development designed by the Adam brothers between 1768 & 1774. This area was occupied from the early Middle Ages by Durham Place, the London residence of the Bishops of Durham. In 1641 this property was passed to the Earl of Pembroke, and by 1769 it was in the hands of the second Duke of Buckingham whose successor in 1769 leased the area that was by then a largely ruinous low water slum to the Adam brothers. No.3 Robert Street was built as a private house where John Adam himself resided from 1778-1785. This building can boast of other famous inhabitants: JM Barrie, best known as the author of Peter Pan, the poet Thomas Hood, Sir John Galsworthy novelist and playwright, along with other eminent artists and writers. Whilst there is no residential accommodation in the training centre our staff would be delighted to assist with overnight accommodation on your behalf.
