Welcome to the Lord Palmerston. Located a stones throw away from Dartmouth Park, Hampstead Heath & Tufnell Park; The Lord Palmerston is our perfectly formed little pub with four roaring fires and a whole host of private hire spaces.
Lord Palmerston, English Whig-Liberal statesman whose long career, including many years as British foreign secretary (1830–34, 1835–41, and 1846–51) and prime minister (1855–58 and 1859–65), made him a symbol of British nationalism. He was the dominant political personality of mid-Victorian Britain.
When Lord Grey declared that he would not serve in cabinet if Lord Palmerston was made Foreign Secretary it became clear to Russell that he could not form a viable government.  Russell declined the Queen's invitation on 21 December and Peel agreed to stay on as Prime Minister.
His father Anthony Hurd (later Lord Hurd) and grandfather Sir Percy Hurd were also Members of Parliament. Douglas attended Twyford School and Eton College, where he was a King's Scholar and won the Newcastle Scholarship in 1947. He was also captain of school (head boy).
