In Elm Hill, at the centre of medieval Norwich, the Strangers’ Club offers a friendly welcome to members and their guests, alike. Its magnificent oak beamed Augustine Hall is at the heart of its many activities.

Its members participate in interest and sporting groups and though a gentlemen’s club, they enjoy a range of events to which their partners are welcomed. It has a uniquely friendly atmosphere so new members do not remain strangers for long.


Membership of the Club is open to gentlemen who seek comradeship, events and group activities with like-minded colleagues.

The club encourages prospective members to visit the club, before being invited to join.
