Cosy fireplaces at The River Arts Club


The origins of River Arts Club date back to 1892, when the Victorian mansion “Oldfields” was built as the Guards Club for the Grenadiers Guards at Windsor Castle. The property subsequently became a riverside gentleman’s residence, before eventually becoming the home of Mr Henry Reitlinger, a well-known art collector. The house was filled with beautiful artwork, and upon Mr Reitlinger’s death in 1950, his daughter converted the house into a museum, to allow the continued enjoyment of the collection so carefully curated by her father.
