THE ARTISTS RIFLES CLUBHOUSE
Situated at Bisley Camp in rural Surrey with easy access to London’s Heathrow Airport and the M3 and M25 motorways, the Artists Rifles Clubhouse is in an ideal location for social functions, corporate events or a pleasant weekend break. The clubhouse, which overlooks the 600 yard Century shooting range, is an integral part of Bisley Camp and has much character and charm.
As the recognised centre of international target rifle shooting, the camp is also a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SoSSI) and has an abundance of wildlife, flora and fauna. The clubhouse offers members and guests a comfortable bar and restaurant set in a welcoming colonial style environment. With facilities for outdoor barbecues, there are 6 bedrooms available to guests, with ample space for car parking.
History of the Clubhouse
The Artists Rifles Regiment formed in 1859 as one of Queen Victoria’s Voluntary Forces. The Regiment had always attracted leading figures in London life and in 1926 they built the Artists Rifles Clubhouse at Bisley as a training and social base for their shooting teams. Many elements of the original building remain intact as well as a wealth of memorabilia, paintings, pictures, photographs and cartoons.
