The Royal Automobile Club was founded in 1897 by Frederick Richard Simms and its distinguished history mirrors that of motoring itself. 10 years later, in 1907, King Edward VII awarded the Club the Royal title that it still holds to this day, sealing the Club’s status as Britain’s oldest and most influential motoring organisation.
The Older Road User Conference will be held in the stately Mountbatten Room. Overlooking Pall Mall, the room’s mirrored panels, marble fireplaces, chandeliers and sumptuous soft furnishings lend an air of prestige and elegance to any event.
