The club's membership experienced periodic shifts with the changing prosperity of British farmers over the years. The club frequently moved premises in its first 60 years. Its inaugural meeting in 1842 was held in a pub in Covent Garden. After several further moves, the club settled on some rooms at 2 Whitehall Court, which it occupied between 1904 and 1942.
