STRANGERS’ DINING ROOM
Strangers’ Dining Room is so called because the term “stranger” is the traditional way of referring to someone physically present in the Palace of Westminster who is neither a member of parliament nor a parliamentary official. In 2004, a motion was approved implementing the recommendation of the Modernisation Committee that the term stranger no longer be used and be replaced with either “member of the public” or “the public”. Strangers’ Dining Room features intricate parquetry floors and stunning period features. Furnished with early Australian cedar yoke back chairs which were probably used in the early refreshment room. It is possible that some of these chairs were used in the original legislative building in the old convict barracks in Queen Street. This space can seat 80 guests or accommodate 100 standing.
