Throughout its history, Millbank has been home to many high-profile political and other organisations. From 1995 the Labour Party rented two floors in the base at the south of the site for use as a general election campaign centre, including the ground floor, which had a lecture theatre, and also a meeting space that was used for press conferences.

Labour ran its 1997 General Election campaign from these offices; after the election, the party vacated its headquarters at John Smith House, Walworth Road SE17, to move to Millbank. Just five years later, however, the £1 million per annum rent forced the party to vacate the tower and relocate to 16 Old Queen Street.

Millbank Tower Renewal
The proposed conversion of the Grade II Listed Millbank Tower into residential, hotel and cultural use includes complete replacement of the innovative stainless steel and glass facades to exactly match the original materials and profiles. When finished, this distinctive London landmark will showcase the same qualities of modernity as it did in 1963 when first built.
