Our Club

Founded in 1927, The Strangers Club is a Private Members’ Club nestled in historic architecture on Elm Hill, Norwich. The Club was formed to bring the many “strangers” together. Now, as then, Members invite guests and friends along to our exclusive setting.

Being a friendly and inviting setting, any member at the bar buys a drink for the next member to arrive. 

Over the years the Club has entertained many notable persons including Queen Mary, Princess Alexandra, the Lord Mayor of London, the Ambassadors of the Netherlands, Belgium and Mexico, Lord Birkenhead, Lord Baden-Powell, Sir Henry Wood, Sir Alfred Munnings, as well as many other writers, actors and politicians. 

The Strangers’ Club is idyllically located in a beautiful grade 2* listed building, on Elm Hill, moments from the River Wensum in the heart of Norwich City Centre.

With its excellent catering team, members can look forward to a variety of high class food and drink. There is focus on quality local produce, and the menu changes weekly suiting the season. Food is paired with a wide selection of wines, ale, beer and spirits.

For those Members and Guests visiting the Strangers' Club exclusive parking is available, to the rear; some members that work in Norwich pay for annual parking spaces too.


There’s a selection of special interest societies at The Strangers Club, each adding opportunities to meet like-minded people and camaraderie. From Investment Groups to Rambling, Bridge to Sailing.
