BMA House: history and love

BMA House: history and love

January 18, 2018

BMA House has been awarded a Gold Green Tourism rating, showing their love and dedication to creating more mindful weddings and events...

Love and dedication has also been shown through the history of BMA House.

Bright and beautiful are two words often used to describe the rooms at BMA House. For those that are interested, the building holds many stories which add to its historical charm and romance.

Located in leafy Bloomsbury, BMA House hides a pretty pond-centred garden where the the foundation of Tavistock House is marked, which was once home to Charles Dickens between 1851 to 1860.

Famed architect Sir Edwin Lutyens began designs with the theosophical society for their headquarters. They soon ran out of money and in 1925 the BMA moved to BMA House, on Tavistock Square. They continued with Lutyen’s vision but did scale him back on some more lavish ideas!

The opening ceremony was attended by King George V and Queen Mary (pictured).

During both world wars, the BMA organised medical services for military forces and civilian populations.

Memorial gates were erected in the Courtyard of BMA House in memory of the 574 BMA members who gave their lives in the First World War. They enclose the Court of Honour in which stands the fountain memorial dedicated to the medical men and women who gave their lives in the Second World War.

From £125 + VAT per person for a minimum of 120 guests, you will have exclusive hire of BMA House. Your event planner will help you choose which rooms are best suited to your wedding.
