About The Royal Air Force Club

The Royal Air Force Club provides accommodation, food and beverages to serving and retired RAF officers and their families in Central London. The vision is to preserve, promote and foster the traditions of the Royal Air Force. Its history dates back over 100 years, when the first Lord Cowdray made a gift to provide a permanent building that would house the Royal Air Force Club.

Trustees host drink receptions for all employees on a regular basis and keep them informed of club news and events. This is to ensure there is strong interaction and understanding between the members and staff, while providing the best possible service.

They also support local causes and recently hosted a boat party on the River Thames in aid of the MIND charity. Employees enjoy regular department team nights out, afternoon tea parties and even a staff boat party to encourage a fun and collaborative culture within the organisation.
