John Smith House (Southwark)
John Smith House is the former Labour Party headquarters at 144-152 Walworth Road in south London. The party first occupied the building in 1980, vacating its former headquarters at Transport House.
Between 1995 and 1997 the Labour Party moved most of its functions from John Smith House to Millbank Tower, before becoming its official HQ at the end of 1997. In 1990 The Labour Party Archive and Library moved from Walworth Road to join the People's History Museum.
Next door to John Smith House is the Confederation of Shipbuilding and Engineering Unions.
