National Liberal Club
The National Liberal Club (NLC) remains completely independent but, as the name implies, continues to be closely identified with the historic Liberal traditions and Liberals worldwide. Overlooking the Thames, with "the most splendid terrace in London", the Club is within easy reach of Whitehall, the West End, the City and theatreland. The clubhouse is conveniently situated for underground and mainline stations which are close by. Luncheon and dinner facilities are provided on weekdays. Please note that accommodation is not provided at the NLC.
The Old Millhillians Club has enjoyed a special relationship with the NLC since 1969 and is now entering a new phase of the partnership. The following terms for the Club’s relationship with the NLC have been agreed, effective 1 August 2019.

NLC Membership application process
The special arrangements with NLC are only available to fully paid OMC members. Before applying for membership of the NLC, please submit the OMC membership verification form to email@example.com This form will be co-signed by a Club Officer and should be sent with your NLC membership application which is available from the NLC website http://www.nlc.org.uk/membership. You will also require a proposer who is an NLC member. The Club can arrange for this.
*Both Clubs see this as a long-term arrangement for their mutual benefit. Nevertheless, the Agreement will be reviewed in 2025 with particular focus on whether or not arrangements intended in perpetuity continue to meet the expectations of both parties. Neither Club Committee wishes to bind its successors to a policy that may no longer be fit for purpose. Both OMC and NLC reserve the right to modify or terminate the above arrangements.
