New London Location for the Institute
The Institute of Masters of Wine is to move to new offices in London’s West End at the end of January.
The move, necessitated by the redevelopment of its existing premises in the City of London, will provide improved facilities for members and students in an easily accessible location.
With effect from 1 February 2011 the Institute’s contact details will be:
The Institute of Masters of Wine
24 Fitzroy Square
Telephone: +44 (0)207 383 9130
Fax: +44 (0)207 383 9139
The new accommodation comprises a board room, members’ room and offices for the five-strong administrative team based in London.
Lynne Sherriff MW, Chairman of the Institute, said: “The new facilities at Fitzroy Square will offer significant benefits to the Institute and its members as well as to the students who attend our course days in London. For more than 50 years the Institute has pursued its goal of promoting excellence in the wine community and we look forward to continuing this work on the international stage from our new home.”
Fitzroy Square is an elegant, Georgian square built around a private garden. It is located off Tottenham Court Road and is today largely pedestrianized. Over the centuries it has been home to many notable figures, including members of the Bloomsbury group and other artists and writers.
