The Strangers’ Room is a meeting place where members of Parliament meet & greet visiting dignitaries including consuls-generals, ambassadors and even members of the Royal family. Guests among the famous names include King Charles III, the late Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the late Diana, Princess of Wales, Prince Edward, Duke of Wessex, his Holiness the Dalai Lama and Actress Audrey Hepburn.

Historically, these guests were referred to as ’strangers’, thus creating the saying ‘where strangers become friends’.

Today, we invite you and your guests to continue this tradition.

“There are no strangers here, only friends you haven’t yet met”. William Butler Yeats (1865 – 1939)– poet
