Welcome to the Club
A diverse and welcoming group of women, providing international friendship, support and service
An international organization, the American Women’s Club of London (AWC) has been helping expat women find their footing in a foreign land for more than 120 years. We provide a busy calendar of social, cultural and educational activities in London, along with ongoing opportunities to serve others through community outreach programs with our partner charities.
Founded in 1899 as the “Society of American Women,” the Club provided opportunities for "useful service" and a welcoming atmosphere to American women living in London. Distinguished early members included Lady Randolph Churchill (Jennie Jerome), mother of Winston; Lady Astor, the Duchess of Marlborough; Mrs. Selfridge; and Mrs. Herbert Hoover. Honorary guests at AWC events included Jackie Kennedy and Eleanor Roosevelt. (Learn more on our History page.) These days, you're as likely to find us wearing jeans and trainers (sneakers) as fancy hats and heels.
Please join us for a new member information session to learn more about the AWC and our wide range of activities. We look forward to meeting you!
We welcome all US citizens, as well as persons with close ties or affinity to the United States. The American Women’s Club of London is proud to be a founding member of the Federation of American Women’s Clubs Overseas (FAWCO) and a member of the Federation of International Women’s Associations in London and the greater London area (FIWAL).
The American Women’s Club of London (AWC) is a non-profit and volunteer-run organization dedicated to providing a welcoming environment and social support network for American women (and non-citizens with close ties to the US) residing in the UK.
