Friends House

Friends House is the central offices of Quakers in Britain and is located at 173 Euston Road, London, NW1 2BJ. It is directly opposite Euston Station and is easily accessible by most forms of transport.


We would like Friends House to be accessible and welcoming to all. The building was constructed in 1926 and its Grade II listing means that there are certain access limitations. The main entrance via the garden is step-free and accessible to all and we are doing all we can to improve accessibility across the building. Find out more about accessibility at Friends House (off-site link).
