Membership

Thank you for your interest in joining the Royal Automobile Club.

We aim to provide our members and their guests with first-class service and high quality accommodation, dining, sports and leisure facilities.

Full Membership is open to adults (aged 18 or over) and Junior Membership is available to the children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews of Full Members.

Information about applying for membership can be found here.

Pall Mall Clubhouse

Dubbed ‘The Palace in Pall Mall’ when it opened in 1911, the clubhouse is a haven from the bustle of the city streets, incorporating stately public spaces that lead into beautiful rooms.

The restaurants, bars and lounges provide a dining experience for every occasion. Pall Mall also offers 108 bedrooms, a business centre and range of meeting and banqueting facilities. In addition to the marble swimming pool and Turkish Baths, there are four squash courts, a gym and treatment rooms.

Woodcote Park

Set in 350 acres of Surrey countryside, Woodcote Park features two 18-hole golf courses, squash and tennis courts, a modern gym, an indoor swimming pool and treatment rooms.

The restaurants offer a fine-dining experience, a brasserie-style meal, or a gastropub atmosphere – with alfresco dining available in the summer. The clubhouse also includes 22 unique bedrooms.

Families also have use of the superb new children’s pool and a range of indoor and outdoor play areas located in the Walled Garden.

Events and Activities

The Club also holds nearly 300 social, sporting and motoring events a year‒ ranging from annual favourites such as Derby Day, the Midsummer Drive-In and the November fireworks to exclusive performances, balls and comedy nights.

Our Activity Groups cover 22 sports and activities – from backgammon to bridge, choir to cycling and skiing to sub aqua – providing members with many opportunities to learn new skills, refresh games played in years gone by, or refine and improve their talents through classes and coaching. In all, they hold some 600 events, meetings and matches each year.

Reciprocal Clubs

Finally, the benefits of membership are not limited to Pall Mall and Woodcote Park: members also have access to over 80 reciprocal clubs around the world.
